Homemade 5-Ingredient Gluten-Free OAT MILK a.k.a. The Upgraded Milk & Cookies (Oh & Got Milk?)

MILK & COOKIES, ANYONE?!

Me! Me! Me!!!!

Y’all knew you could eat to get all the health benefits of oats, BUT DID Y’ALL KNOW YOU COULD DRINK & GET THEM TOO?

Today, for the first time, instead of making almond, cashew or hemp milk, I tried Minimalist Baker’s homemade oat milk. Her original recipe calls for maple syrup, but I swapped it for some Manuka honey for the added health benefits & to give this milk an immunity boost and an extra dose of antioxidants!

Given my obsession with oats & all the health benefits they provide, you can imagine I was STOKED when I found out that oat milk was a thing!!!!

NOW I could get my oats & MORE IMPORTANTLY, MY MILK & COOKIES FIX, in an EVEN healthier way!

This milk is so amazing for so many reasons!!!!

My loves, YOU WILL NEED:

  • 1 cup of gluten-free rolled oats;
  • 3 cups of filtered water;
  • Pinch of sea salt;
  • 2 tsp. manuka honey;
    • Swap for 1 organic date (soaked), raw organic unpasteurized (& preferably local) honey or pure organic maple syrup!
  • Ceylon cinnamon;
  • 1 tsp. pure organic vanilla extract

HOW TO MAKE IT?

  • Add all ingredients to blender & blend for 1 minute until the mixture is well combined! It doesn’t have to be 100% because you’ll be straining!

  • Pour the milk over a large mixing bowl covered with a dish towel (A nut milk leaves too much residue through).

    • It should keep for up to 5 days!

  • DRINK UP!!!!
