How To Make Your Own Oat Milk
What should I have in my coffee now? On our Swedish site, this is the most asked question we’ve received since we published Ann’s open letter to Oatly last week (find the article in Swedish here).
Ok so, first and foremost, it’s very individual how much milk is in your coffee. As Ann so wisely writes: “If you’re hauling around a large oat latte and belong to the camp of barely being able to remember the last time you had a workout, well then your blood sugar will most likely have an upwards spike. If you only use a small splash of oat milk in your coffee and are a sporty type, your blood sugar will more than likely remain pretty stable. Between these two extremes are all shades of grey. ”
Just for kicks we decided to make our own oat milk again and lucky we did because it reminded us just how easy it is. Not to mention how good it is made fresh plus the extra bonus of being lighter on the wallet. A liter of oat milk, which contains about ½ cup of oatmeal, costs around 2 dollars. Guess how much oatmeal you get for the same amount of money? 1.5 kg!
The recipe below is so simple that you won’t even need to write it down. We think it turned out great and since we made a whole liter, there was enough left over that we added some cocoa later in the evening and Voilà – chocolate milk!
- Servings : 1 liter 1x
1 liter of water
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 teaspoon salt
Put everything in a high-speed mixer and mix until completely smooth!
Add 1 teaspoon of cocoa for your own chocolate milk or 1 tablespoon of Nutrient Hunter’s fiber blend for a fiber boost.
