This Homemade Oat Milk requires only 2 ingredients and about 5 minutes of your time to prepare. Incredibly easy, it costs nearly nothing to make, on top of generating absolutely zero waste. It's a no fuss, no mess and no straining needed recipe. Simply put: there's nothing not to love about it!
Soak the oats in cold water for at least 30 minutes, or up to overnight.
Drain the oats and rinse them really well under cold running water, until the water runs clear.
Add the oats and 4 cups of fresh water plus a pinch of salt to the container of your high-speed blender and blend on high for a full minute. Let the milk rest for about a minute, then blend again for another 30 seconds or so.
Transfer to a clean container and keep your milk in the fridge for up to 5 days.
If time permits, let the milk chill completely before using; it will become thicker and creamier as it chills.
Your oat milk might separate as it sits, be sure to give it a good shake before using.
