Homemade Oat Milk
Oat milk is an excellent alternative to nut milk and other dairy-free milk and if you can make it at home, it can save you a lot of money. Homemade oat milk is also super easy to blend together. If you have some steel-cut oats, a strainer, and a cheesecloth, you can make oat milk. The one step you can't skip is rinsing the oats after you soak them so the mixture doesn't get slimy.
Rolled oats work really well for making homemade vegan, gluten-free oat milk. Because the oats are flattened, they soak up water fairly quickly and the oat pulp almost dissolves completely when it's blended. It doesn't quite have the neutral flavor of cashew milk or cow's milk and requires additional flavoring. Most recipes call for a pinch of salt to enhance the flavor, but other flavorings vary across recipes. You'll be able to find one that suits your taste. You might find ingredients like vanilla extract, maple syrup, coconut flakes, or a low-carb sweetener.
If you're looking for a milk alternative for your latte that isn't coconut milk or almond milk, oat milk might be your solution. However, while oat milk is easy to make at home, if you're making a homemade oat milk latte, you may want to try a store-bought oat milk because those foam up a little bit better than the homemade versions.
Homemade oat milk is an excellent non-dairy milk to add to fruit smoothies -- blended with bananas and berries, it makes a great breakfast or healthy dessert.
Using oat milk as a creamer instead of soy milk, nut milks, and nut-free milks, is an excellent way to add creaminess to your coffee and even cut its bitterness.
