SHARE - It's easy to make delicious oat milk! But, if you've made other plant-based milk before, a word of caution: it's not like making almond milk, where you get as much liquid out of a nut milk bag as possible.

It's necessary to squeeze and press the mixture as little as possible in this recipe. If not, it will become slimy and grainy. So, are you ready to learn how to make oat milk in just a few simple steps? Scroll down!

  • Oats
  • Water
  • Vanilla
  • Maple syrup
  • Salt
  • Oil

The instructions on how to make oat milk creamer:

Step 1. In a blender, combine the oats and water and blend for about 20 seconds. You don't need to blend any longer because oat milk can become gummy.

Step 2. Strain the oat milk through a nut milk bag over a cup. A cheesecloth will suffice if you don't have a nut milk container. You'll just need to strain it a couple of times to get all of the pulp out.

Step 3. Rise out the blender and add the oat milk back. Blend in the vanilla, maple syrup, salt, and oil for a few seconds until completely combined.

  • 1 cup oats, soaked 3-4 hours
  • 2 tbsp walnut or avocado oil
  • 3-4 cups water
  • Pinch of salt
  • Vanilla extract, cinnamon, turmeric - whatever flavorings you like (optional)

The instructions on how to make oat milk:

Step 1. Rinse the soaked oats for about 30 seconds before combining them with the oil, water, salt, and vanilla extract, if using, in a blender. Three cups of water will be creamy, while four cups will be thinner.

Step 2. Blend for around 30 seconds on big. Squeeze all out of a mesh bag (or a fine-mesh sieve lined with cheesecloth) into a tub. Keep refrigerated in a glass container.

Step 3. Experiment with it if you want to! To sweeten, add a date or two to the blender or flavor with vanilla extract, cinnamon, or other spices.

  • 1/2 cup whole rolled oats
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅛ teaspoon sea salt

The instructions on how to make oat milk:

Step 1. In a blender, combine the oats, water, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt for 30 seconds.

Step 2. Strain the milk through a fine-mesh strainer over a wide tub, push any excess pulp through the strainer. This would result in a creamier, less rough, and gummy feel.

Step 3. If necessary, add more maple syrup to taste. Allow chilling overnight. I suggest adding ice to your oat milk if you want to drink it right away; the taste is best when it's well chilled.

How to Make Oat Milk Ice Cream

  • 3 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk, such as oat or soy, divided
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup raw cashews If you don't have a high-speed blender, sub ⅓ to ½ cup raw cashew butter.
  • ⅔ cup maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp fine sea salt
  • 1-ounce good quality gin or vodka

The instruction on how to make oat milk ice cream:

Step 1. Simmer oats in 1 cup milk in a small saucepan until tender, around 10 minutes. Transfer to a cooling bowl right away.

Step 2. Mix the remaining 2 cups of milk with the cashews in a blender. Blend on high for a few minutes or until absolutely smooth. Blend in the cooled oatmeal, maple syrup, vanilla, salt, and gin or vodka, if using. Refrigerate until fully chilled.

Step 3. Using your ice cream machine, churn the mixture according to the manufacturer's instructions. The ice cream will be softer than a normal soft-serve consistency at this stage. Put it in a freezer-safe bag, cover it, and freeze for 4 hours.

Step 4. About the 4 hours mark, and certainly, after the ice cream has been in the freezer for longer, scooping it straight out of the freezer would be too difficult. Until serving, allow the ice cream to soften for about 15 minutes at room temperature.
