And if you like flavored milk, this oat milk recipe is a great base to add flavor to it.
You can use a bit of raw sugar to sweeten it up or add some dates with a pinch of salt and a dash of vanilla. You could use cocoa (affiliate link) powder or cinnamon when blending it.

Anyway, it will taste very delicious.

tips, tricks & Other recipes

Here are some tips and tricks to make the best oat milk

  • It doesn’t matter if you use rolled oats or instant oats. Your milk will be delicious. I do prefer rolled oats, though.
  • Use an old kitchen towel or an old t-shirt to strain the oat milk if you don’t have a nut milk bag.
  • It is better if you make your oat milk in a highspeed blender like the Vitamix (affiliate link), but any other blender will work.
  • Do not blend for more than 40 seconds, this can make it slimy.
  • Here are other recipes with oats that I love: blender oat pancakes, vegan oat bars, oats in granola.
