  • Author: Chef Ani
  • Yield: 4 cups 1x


  • 3 1/2 cups water (cold water)
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 cup organic rolled oats
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Optional ingredient:  

  • 13 teaspoons maple syrup


  • In a high power blender, add water and ice.  It is crucial to keep the water cold.
  • Next, add oats (do not soak).
  • Add salt, vanilla, and maple syrup if desired.
  • Blend on high for 35-45 seconds.  Be sure the milk stays cold.  If the milk heats up, it changes consistency.
  • Strain the milk.  We have found that some of the cloth nut bags do not work well for oat milk.  The bag gets easily clogged.  We would therefore recommend this particular nut bag or a very fine sieve.  It is also important not to squeeze the nut bag.  Just let the milk run through, gently push out the water.  The remaining pulp can be used in recipes such as oat waffles, muffins, etc.
  • We like to store our milk in mason jars with lids.  It makes it very easy to shake before using.  Oat milk separates, so it is essential to stir before serving.  Store in the fridge.
