Creamy oat milk & iced coffee

Oat milk is my favorite plant-based milk.  Sweet and creamy, it’s perfect for cereals, desserts, pancakes or just like that in a big tall glass. In addition to being easy to make, it is much more economical than nut-based milks.

You can also vary the flavors.  My daughter loves it when i add a cup of fresh strawberries to make a pink strawberry oat milk or a few spoons of cocoa powder for a chocolate drink.  I love using oat milk to make iced coffee. I leave you the recipe at the bottom of the page. Do not throw away the oat fiber.  You can add it in muffin, pancake or cookie mix. No waste 😉

Ingredients

  • 1 liter of water
  • 1 cup oats
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch of salt

Preparation

  1. In a blender, put all the ingredients and blend for about a minute.
  2. Filter with a nut milk bag or several cheesecloth.
  3. Transfer to a pitcher that you can easily shake.
  4. Stir before each use. It is normal for a deposit to be present at the bottom of the pitcher.
  5. Some prefer to rince the oats in water before preparing the milk. This way, the milk is clearer. Personally, I like the creamy side of the oats. I even sometimes let the oats soak in the blender with the water 5-10 minutes before blending to get a thicker and creamier texture.  It’s perfect if you want to use it as a coffee creamer.
