Homemade Organic Non-Dairy Oat Milk

Finally attempted a homemade non dairy milk today. It was so easy, I don’t know what I was waiting for!

I soaked 2 cups of oat groats the other night, then drained them and added the soaked groats to my Vitamix, along with 3 cups of filtered water. Then I set up a nut milk bag and strained the blended mixture to get the oat pulp out. I put it back in the Vitamix and added 3 more cups of water, 2 heaping tablespoons of raw, local honey, a teaspoon of cinnamon, and 5 teaspoons of vanilla extract. Blended it up again and poured it into mason jars to store in the refrigerator.

Play with the above measurements until it satisfies your taste buds. I figure that the bit of honey I used must be way less than what’s in commercially produced non dairy milks that use cane sugar/juice and many other unpronounceable ingredients.

The baby loved it, and it should be perfect for adding to cereal, pancake batter, and baked goods.
