Reluctant Housewife: Oat Milk
Updated: Apr 1, 2019
Living in L.A. you get exposed to a lot of things. Different cultures, out of the box art forms and the latest food trends before most of the country has or will ever hear of them. Oat milk is our latest non-dairy milk alternative and let me tell you, it's gonna blow you mind.
Whether you drink milk or not this creamy mixture is so worth trying. And, you should try it soon. Apparently, the stuff is so popular there's an oat milk shortage happening and prices are skyrocketing!
Just in time to save the day here is my stupidly easy recipe to make you own oat milk. You may never go back to almond milk ever again!

Cheesecloth nut milk bag
You'll need a blender for this.
Take 2 cups cold water and one cup rolled oats and add it to a blender. If using a normal blender blend for about a minute. If using a Vitamix or a Ninja blend for about 12-15 seconds.
Take your cheesecloth and insert it into a tall glass with the edges of the cloth going over the sides. Pour you milk into the glass. Squeeze the mixture to strain it. Once the milk has been strained dump out the remaining oats left over.
Take you strainer and put into a new glass and repeat the straining process again.
Pour your oat milk into a glass and drink immediately or save for later. It will last up to five days in the fridge!
Note: Don't boil your oat milk. The mixture can turn gummy. You can warm it, but don't go crazy unless you'd like a side of cream of wheat. Enjoy!
