After you read this post you will neve buy oat milk again in the supermarket, the homemade version is cheaper, easy do make, delicious and you know exactly what you are drinking.

The recipe is quite simple and full of possible variations:

  • 1 litre water (4cups)
  • 40g rolled oats preferably wholegrain and organic (1/3 cup)
  • 3 dates (optional)
  • 1 pinch of salt (optional)
  • Vanilla Extract or almond extract (optional)
  • 1tsp Cinnamon (optional)

Soak the oats for at least 2 hours. Drain the oats, place them into a blender and add the water. Blend on high speed for approximately 1 minute, or until the oats have been completely broken down into a creamy liquid.

Strain the milk through a fine sieve,cheese/muslin cloth into a clean glass jar. Store it in the fridge, will last for 3-5 days. 🙂

Tips: You can add / subtract ingredients according to taste and dietary needs. You may add more water if you prefer a thinner milk, or less for a slightly thicker consistency.

Shake the bottle before drinking.
You can store and use the leftover oat pulp to do cookies, cakes, bread, burgers, granola pancakes, energetic bars, muffins,etc.

Be creative and enjoy!

PT:

  • 1 litro de água 
  • 40 grs de flocos de aveia (preferencialmente integral e orgânica) 
  • 3 tâmaras (opcional)
  • 1 pitada de sal marinho integral (opcional)
  • Extracto de baunilha a gosto (opcional)
  • 1 c. chá Canela (opcional)

Demolhar os flocos de aveia pelo menos por 2 horas, colocar a aveia bem escorrida num processador de alimentos (liquidificador, bimby, etc.) e adicionar a agua. Triturar na velocidade máxima por 1 minuto aproximadamente. Coar num coador de rede ou pano e colocar o leite vegetal num frasco de vidro.

Guardar no frigorifico, dura entre 3 a 5 dias.

Dicas: Agitar o frasco antes de beber.

Pode-se adicionar / subtrair ingredientes de acordo com o gosto e necessidades dietéticas. Adicionar mais água para obter um leite mais fino, ou menos água para uma consistência ligeiramente mais espessa.
Guarde as sobras do leite e utilize para farinha em bolos ou outras receitas (papas de aveia, panquecas, granola, partes, barras energéticas, muffins, bolos, pão, patês, etc..)

    I have to try this recipe! I have only been buying soy milk for the longest time and I would love to try something different! This is exactly what I will try. I bet it is cheaper in the end to make your own instead of buying cartons at stores. Great post!
