Homemade Oat Milk

In Drinks, Recipes by MurielLeave a Comment

One of the most exciting DIY foodie discoveries I’ve made in the last year. I can’t believe it took me this long to try it out. It’s tasty. Creamy. Great with coffee. Quick and easy. Cheap. Zero waste.

You’ll need a jug blender (or a Nutribullet), and a nut milk bag (or an old—but clean—t-shirt, or a large square of muslin). If you use a Nutribullet or similar, you’ll have to halve the recipe to fit it in the cup.

Be sure to keep the leftover pulp to make Oat, Choc Chip & Cranberry Cookies!

If you make this recipe and decide to share it on Facebook or Instagram, don’t forget to tag me @PlantifulCoach + #PlantifulCoach! I’d love to see your foodie creations 🙂
