5 Minute Homemade Oat Milk
If you're looking for a quick and easy vegan milk recipe, look no further! Today, I'm going to show you how to make oat milk in just 5 minutes with only 2 ingredients. The best part? You don't need any fancy equipment or ingredients! The most important thing to remember when making oat milk is to use ice-cold water. If the water is warm or at room temperature, the oats will become sticky and the liquid will be stretchy, not milky. Blend at the highest speed for a short amount of time to prevent the oats from heating up. Be sure to use rolled oats, not fine oats. The structure of fine oats is different and can result in a sticky liquid instead of milk. Oat milk is a versatile ingredient that's perfect for smoothies, shakes, or baked goods. It's even a great addition to coffee or tea, but be sure not to reheat it. One of my favorite ways to use oat milk is in pancakes, which become tight and elastic when made with this milk. If you don't have a strainer to strain the milk, don't worry. Supermarket eco grocery bags are a great substitute. They're affordable and come in a pack of 2 or 3. You can usually find them near the fruits and vegetables section. And the best part of this recipe? You can use the leftover oats to make raw truffles! Simply add dates, cocoa, cinnamon, peanut butter, nut tahini, protein powder, walnuts, or other nuts to the leftover oats, and you have a delicious and healthy snack. Oats are known for their health benefits, and oat milk is no exception. Oats are rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals, including calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, zinc, potassium, and more. Drinking oat milk can help you meet your daily nutrient requirements while enjoying a delicious beverage. So, the next time you're looking for a vegan milk alternative, give this quick and easy oat milk recipe a try. It's a tasty and healthy way to add variety to your diet.
