How to make oak milk
Oat milk is one of the easiest non-dairy milks to make and takes just minutes to whip up with stuff you've already got - why not give it a go?
- Blender / food processor
- Sieve or muslin square
- Jug or storage jar
- 75g oats
- 700ml water
- ⅛ teaspoon salt (that's a pinch - adjust it to taste)
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
- 1 tsp maple syrup (optional - for the sweet toothed among us)
Add the oats, water, vanilla, and salt to a blender and blitz for 30 seconds.
Place a fine mesh sieve or muslin square over a bowl and strain the milk. Unlike nut based milks you don't want to push the pulp through or press too hard or you'll end up with a slimy texture that's just not nice.
If you like your milks on the sweet side you can add a little maple or agave syrup to taste.
Pop it in the refrigerator to chill. If you want to drink your oat milk right away add a few cubes of ice - it's at it's best when cold.
