Here’s how to make Homemade Oat Milk Creamer using steel cut oats that is dairy-free, vegan, and perfect for coffee or other hot beverages. This budget-friendly creamer is great to have in your refrigerator at all times. No slime recipe!

  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 8 1x


Units Scale
  • 1 cup steel cut oats, soaked and rinsed (see notes)
  • 3 cups filtered water
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (you can also use 1 pitted date)


  1. In the base of a high-speed blender like a Vitamix, combine the steel cut oats and water.
  2. Blend on high for 20-30 seconds, or until well combined. Do not overblend.
  3. Pour the mixture through a fine mesh strainer or a nut milk bag, and gently squeeze out the milk.
  4. Then, pour the filtered oat milk back into the blender. Add the sea salt and maple syrup and blend for 5-10 seconds.
  5. Use immediately, or transfer the oat milk creamer into a storage container and store in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.


  1. To soak your steel cut oats, place them in a medium bowl. Cover with water and let it sit for at least 4 hours, or up to 12 hours. Rinse through a fine mesh strainer before using for oat milk.
  2. You can use rolled oats for this recipe, but the rolled oats tend to give the oat milk a slimier texture than steel cut oats.
  3. Use certified gluten-free oats to make this recipe gluten-free.
  4. Filtered water helps prevent any chlorine taste.
