How to Make Your Own Oat Milk

  • You may have heard about the latest milk trend on the rise now – oat milk! Made with rolled oats or steel-cup oats and water, it’s easy to make oat milk at home with your favourite type of sweetener. I like to use honey, but a lot of people recommend dates for sweetness, and you can supplement the flavor with a dash of vanilla extract.

    Now, almond milk is the most popular plant-based milk on the market these days, but for individuals with nut allergies, oat milk is an excellent alternative. Plus, oat milk has a delicious flavor and creamier texture than other plant-based milks, and it provides a boost of fibre in each serving.

    Is oat milk actually healthy? Is it better for you than almond milk or cow’s milk? Ultimately, oat milk is a little higher in calories than almond milk and a little lower fat. The biggest difference (and best benefit) is that oat milk is high in beta-glucans — a soluble fibre with heart health benefits.

    As with anything, it’s all about moderation! Honestly, making oat milk at home is an incredibly easy process and takes all of about 5 minutes, so why not give it a try? Sub out the milk in your cereal with oat milk for a little more fibre, or try adding a little to your morning coffee.

    Here’s how to make easy 5-minute oat milk with only a few ingredients!
