DIY Oat Milk

This recipe is easier than you think and a total game-changer.

My low waste journey is far from being perfect, but I try to improve it every day and I have to be honest that the lockdown made me slow down a bit and spend more time improving things at home. One of the things I wanted to try for a while was doing my own bread and this was the perfect moment, because we couldn't find it any longer in the supermarket (and that was all we needed). Following this, I decided to try and do my own milk.


It has been a few years since I stopped drinking cow's milk because it would make me bloated and so I've started to drink plant-based milk. I've also discovered that it takes over 1020 liters of water to produce 1 liter of cow's milk.


As I was still not satisfied with the number of packages thrown away and I believe there's always another solution, it was about time to do my own milk.


Between the plant-based options, oat is the one that needs less water and almond the "less sustainable" one.


This recipe is so simple and quick that it will blow your mind!


Ingredients

  • for this little jar, I used only 50gr of oats

  • 375gr water (yes, I weight water because my blender has a scale. you can weight it too by deducting the weight of the jar you use - tare button) + a bit extra to soak the oats

  • 1 pinch of salt

  • 1 date to sweeten if you would like

Preparation

  • place the oats in a bowl, cover with water and soak for 10 mins. Drain them and place in your blender

  • add the 350gr of water, the pinch of salt and the date to sweeten

  • blend for 1 min

  • finally, you can pour into a bottle using a strainer. The result should be a smooth liquid. If you want unstrained, but add a bit of extra water.

This little jar was enough to add to 3 coffees, as I just drink it in the morning.


Let me know what you think!


Love,

B
