Homemade Oat Milk

Since both James and Bella are allergic to milk we drink plant milk. The two favorites are almond milk and oat milk. When I cook or bake I like oat the best and James likes oat milk in his coffee.

I follow a Swedish blog about green living and the blogger made homemade oat milk which did not look very complicated, so I gave it a try. Bella really enjoyed helping me make it; as well as drinking it. Since Bella likes her milk sweetened I added some maple syrup and vanilla to it so it will resemble the “regular” milk she’s used to.

1 1/2 cup oats
8 cups water
1 pinch of salt
2 tbs canola oil
1 tbs maple syrup


Mix oats and water with a hand held mixer, in a blender or food processor for a a minute or so. Strain milk through a cheese cloth (Save the oat mass that is left to make yummy veggie burgers or patties).
Blend in salt, oil and maple syrup. Keep refrigerated in a pitcher or glass bottle. Shake before serving.
