We thought it was time to create an oat milk which has gained a lot of popularity through cafe culture of late. I had tried to do a recipe years ago but without success as I was treating the oats much the same as nuts. We ended up with something not unlike a good wallpaper paste and not at all drinkable! (It sounds so appealing right?)
So as part of our plant based milk series for the Insider Club, I did some research and we nailed it. This oat milk has the same texture as regular milk, it didn't froth up as we had hoped it might, but if you are looking to replace everyday milk with something else, this is easy, cheap and super quick. Quicker than running to the shop if you ran out of milk. No soaking required, no heat required. Just instantaneous oat milk. You are welcome.
Oat milk is at its best during its first few days in the fridge; if you don’t go through it fast enough, consider halving the recipe. Store your oat milk in a sealed container (I like airtight mason jars) so you can shake the milk well before drinking, as it will separate on standing.

- 150 Grams rolled oats
- cold water for rinsing
- 300 Grams iced water for blending, plus some more to finish
- 1 Pinch pink salt flakes BUY
- 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla extract BUY
- sweetner of choice if desired
Weigh oats into a colander or sieve. Rinse thoroughly under a running tap until the water runs almost clear.
Tip the oats into the Thermomix bowl and add the 400g water to the bowl. Blend 20 sec/speed 10.
Strain the mixture through a nut milk bag, without being too vigorous. The more you activate the oats, the more chances of that gluey consistency you really want to avoid.
Rinse out the Thermomix bowl and return the oat milk to the bowl with water up to 500g approximately, plus the salt and vanilla. Blend 5 sec/speed 3. Pour into a jar or jug and use within 3 days of making as you would any other milk.
