Learn to make Oat Milk right at home with just a few simple ingredients and only a few minutes of time! It’s naturally sweetened with Medjool dates and results in the creamiest and most delicious dairy-free milk that you’ll ever make at home! Recipe by Food with Feeling.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of rolled old fashioned oats
  • 3.5 - 4.5 cups of water depending on how thick you want it. Use 4.5 for traditional oat milk and 3.5 for thicker milk like a creamer.
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt
  • 1-2 Natural Delights Medjool dates, pitted
  • Optional for flavoring: 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Preparation

  1. Place all of the ingredients in a high powdered blender and blend for right at 1 minute, or until there are no chunks left. You really do NOT want to over blend the oat milk or else it will end up slimy and very unpleasant to drink. 45 seconds- 1 minute is usually perfect.
  2. Strain the oat milk by placing a nut milk bag or lint-free towel over the top of a large bowl, pour in the oat milk, and carefully lift up the cloth so that the milk can strain through it.
  3. Discard the pulp and store the milk in an air tight container in the refrigerator for 1 week.
  4. Serve and Enjoy!

*While Medjool dates are high in natural sugars, they are low on the glycemic index thanks to a balanced amount of soluble fiber. The complex carbohydrates found in Medjool dates are digested at a slower rate, making them a source of dietary fiber and releasing energy to the body over a longer period of time.
