What are the benefits of oat milk? Is it good for you? Making oat milk is awesome because it’s delicious, healthy, and super cheap! All you need is dry oatmeal, water, a blender, and some type of strainer. My husband and kids love this Homemade Chocolate Oat Milk Recipe too!
Which makes me really happy because I know they’re drinking healthy plant based milk! It’s very simple to make vegan milk at home!
Oatmeal is a type of flour made of hulled oats grains. Quick oats are a type of rolled oats that have been processed to be very fine. Quick-cooking rolled oats (quick oats) are cut into small pieces.
Rolled oats are a great vegan ingredient in recipes such as oatmeal cookies, oatcakes, flapjacks, and baked oatmeal dessert. Is oat milk good for you?
Oats are rich in protein, fiber, and manganese. They also contain a moderate content of Phosphorus and zinc. These nutrients are part of the benefits of oat milk.
All you need to make this DIY recipe is 1 cup of old fashioned quick oats, 2 tbsp cocoa powder, and 3 cups water. Cocoa powder helps create the best healthy chocolate flavor.
I also like to add a tsp of vanilla extract for flavor. You will also need a blender or food processor and some type of strainer.
To strain the oats from the liquid it’s preferable to have a sieve, cheesecloth, or nut milk bag. Keep the left over oats for making oatmeal or baby food.
The proper instructions for making chocolate oat milk are to soak the quick oats in water for 1 hour at room temperature. Then put the oatmeal and cocoa powder in a blender or food processor.
Next add the remaining 2 cups of water and shake it up! For added sweetener try 1 tsp stevia or 2 tbsp agave.
