Oat Milk

I used to love milk. But milk didn’t love me back. I noticed three major things when I removed dairy from my diet:

1. I didn’t get sick as often.
2. 99% of my digestive issues disappeared.
3. I got a lot more creative in the kitchen.

I’ve been making nut milks at home for years now but recently started making more oat milk. It’s so damn easy and because I already eat a lot of nuts and seeds in my diet felt I may have been overdoing it a bit PLUS oats are way cheaper than nuts!!!

It’s not necessary to soak the oats BUT I feel that the milk comes out far creamier when you do. I typically strain this through a very fine mesh strainer 2-3 times as it can get pretty messy in a nut bag.

1/2 cup Oats
2 cups Water (plus 2 cups for soaking - soak for 2-8 hours)
1 Pitted Date
Pinch of Salt
Teaspoon Vanilla

Soak oats and rinse thoroughly. Pop everything into the blender, whiz until completely blended and pour through the strainer. Will keep in the fridge for 3-5 days. Shake well before pouring. Enjoy!
