Homemade Oat Milk

"creamy oat milk, great for making with the leftovers from your morning serving and costs you pennies compared to the products you find on the shelves at the supermarket. This recipe has basically the same quantities and ratios for making rice milk."

Ready In:
1 quart




  • (To cook steel cut or thick rolled oats, bring 1 cup of water to a boil in a small sauce pan, add 1/2 cup of oats and turn the heat down to med/low, they just want to gently simmer for about 10 minutes. Give it a stir to check to see if the oats have absorbed all of the water.).
  • Bring 5 cups of water to a boil.
  • As you are waiting for the water to boil, add the rest of the ingredients to a blender. As soon as your water is boiling add 3-4 cups to the blender. Be sure that there is room left in the top of the blender and that the lid fits securely or you could risk splashing yourself with hot water when you flip the switch.
  • Turn your blender on low and increase to high speed, blending for about 20 seconds or so. Check the consistency, add more water as necessary to achieve the desired thickness. The mixture will thicken a little as it cools off and eventually chills.

  1. Great, easy recipe! Wonderful for those of us who can't buy commercial oat milk because of gluten. Besides, this is so easy, who would WANT to buy instead of make it? I did find that I need to put the milk through a fine sieve or milk bag after making it, to take out the chunkier bits and pieces. Thanks for the great recipe!
  2. this is really good, the only thing i did different was that i added a scoop (it says 35grams) of protien powder to help with protien intake, do they make nonflavored liquid calcium? i think next time i will try adding that also! i will let you know how it turns out. i am going to totally quit milk now! thanks Chazzzz for a great recipie!


Currently enrolled at the University of Alaska Anchorage studying Biology and Chemistry while trying to support myself and my lifestyle by working as a baker and breakfast cook at a local cafe, and I also am a licensed personal chef. Food is my passion and I enjoy working the fast paced restaurant gigs but appreciate the slow meticulous attention to details involved with baking. My favorite biological organism is the yeast cell, which would make my favorite beverage, beer. Home-brewing has been a hobby of mine for only the past few years, but I will waste a beautiful Alaska day brewing a fresh batch anytime.
