Recipe type: Drinks, Dairy-Free Milk, Vegan
Cuisine: Vegan, International
  • 1 cup old-fashioned or rolled oats (gluten-free & wheat-free brand)
  • water for soaking
  • 3 cups of water
  • honey, maple syrup, date syrup or brown sugar or any other sweetener, optional
  • cinnamon, optional
  • vanilla or almond extract, optional
  • blender
  • fine sieve or cheese cloth, if straining
  1. Place the oats in a large bowl and pour enough water to cover. Allow to sit for 10 minutes. Drain and place in blender. Pour in 3 cups of water and sweetener or additional flavorings if desired. Process until the oats have completely broken down into a creamy liquid. You may add more water if a thinner milk is desired, or less for a slightly thicker consistency. Some people choose to strain the milk through a cheese cloth, I don't. But if you do make sure to save the ground up oats for baking. The milk will keep in the refrigerator for a few days, but it may separate and need to be shaken before using.
