Homemade oat milk is a nut, soy, gluten, and dairy-free. It is healthy and rich in proteins. It only requires gluten-free oats, water, and a sweetener to make.


 1 Cup whole gluten-free oats

 4 cups cold  water

 2-4 dates (pitted) or 2 tsp real maple syrup

 1 tsp vanilla extract or powder  (optional)


1. Soak oats in cold water for about 5-10 minutes. Please don’t over soak oats, prolonged soaking can make the milk slimy.

2. Drain the water and rinse. This helps to clean, remove excess starch, and soften the oats making them easier to blend even with a less powerful blender.

3. Place the oats, dates, vanilla extract, and water in a high-speed blender. Puree on high for 20-30 seconds or until smooth.

4. Strain the blended mixture using a strainer, cheesecloth, or straining bag into a clean container.

5. Transfer the milk into a milk bottle or a milk jar. Chill in the refrigerator for about 30 min -1 hr before serving.


Do not use warm or hot water to blend the oats. Hot water tends to make oat milk slimy.
