Recipe Highlights

With so many plant-based milk options, why would you want to consider oat milk for your coffee creamer?

  • Oat milk is naturally nut-free and possibly less allergenic for some people than almond milk or other plant-based milks made from nuts.
  • It’s also soy-free so doesn’t have the potential issues that come from soy milk.
  • Oats have unique nutritional properties and are high in fiber, B vitamins, and minerals.
  • Oat milk has a neutral flavor; it’s non-offensive and blends in with whatever recipe you’re using it in.

In short, oat milk is perfect for a no dairy diet and as your new favorite coffee creamer.

Recipe Steps

Making oat milk is similar to the process of making almond milk, although you won’t need a nut milk bag. Since oat milk has the tendency to get slimy, it’s best to just pour the blended oats and water through a sieve instead of squeezing through a bag.

Also, to make sure this recipe is gluten-free, always use certified gluten-free oats.

The steps to making this oat milk recipe include:

Step One

Combine the oats, water, and dates in a high-speed blender (like a Blendtec) and process for 15 seconds.

Step Two

Pour the milk through a strainer and use a spatula to gently push it through.

Step Three

Transfer the oat milk to a container with a lid. Use immediately or save any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days

Since my recipe includes two Medjool dates, the oat milk is slightly sweet and perfect for using in a latte or your favorite hot beverage.

FAQs

Can I use steel cut oats for this recipe?

No, steel cut oats won’t work for oat milk as they are too dense to be blended up properly.
