Oat Milk Vegan Recipe: How To Make Oatmeal Delicious


Call it vegan milk, oat milk, or dairy-free milk, this is surely going to be a showstopper. Well, my dear friends, if there is a lactose intolerance problem at home or you have turned vegan or have soy sensitivity or want to try out dairy-free alternatives, then you will surely fall in love with this white beauty. If you trust me and my recipes, then this one is a MUST TRY. I have already experimented with it in a dairy-free ice cream yesterday. Nobody in the family could think of it being a no cream, no milk kulfi. It was one delish, healthy attempt at kulfi making.

Since it was just an experiment, I have used only 1/4 cup of oats here. I suggest you go for a small batch initially and do a taste test. If the taste appeals to your taste buds (which I am sure will), you can go for a bigger batch. But if you have nut allergy, besides lactose intolerance, then this will surely be your go-to milk recipe.

The dairy-free alternative is a healthy choice for one and all, not just those who are

  • lactose intolerant or dairy allergy or milk allergy (one of the leading causes of kids developing dairy allergy is their mothers choosing to feed them outside milk in their nascent years when they need to be fed breast milk - avoid using any other milk than breast milk and formula if your baby is under-one-year of age - breastfeeding has immense benefits for both the mother and the child - while it helps build your baby's immunity, breastfeeding reduces your risk of breast cancer)
  • allergic to nuts
  • sensitive to soy (you should avoid soy if you have hormonal imbalance issues unless you need estrogen production in the body)
  • cancer patients or cancer fighters - dairy is best avoided during cancer treatment so this dairy milk alternative offers hope to cancer patients
  • diabetics - since oats is rich in fiber, this is the best dairy-free milk alternative for those with blood sugar spike issues - oats ensures slow release of glucose in the blood, helping keep your blood sugar levels normal

how to make soy free, dairy free milk with oats for a vegan recipe


This is such a versatile dairy-free milk alternative that can be used for:

  • baking cakes and cookies
  • making desserts and ice creams
  • whipping up shakes (almond butter shake tastes really yum)
  • dunking up a cookie 
Oats is one of my favorite ingredients these days. After having tried this super grain in cakes, cookies, curries, drinks, soups, and kulfis, it was time to make oat milk. Trust you me, I had never imagined oat milk to taste so rich and yummy.

Add 1 tsp of homemade almond butter to your oat milk and you will take heavenly sips of one of the yummiest dairy milk alternatives.

Let's go through oats benefits first and then do visit our 100+oats recipes page. We soon plan to come up with our oats cookbook.

history of oats

Types of Oats

types of oats: courtesy the kitchn

Steel cut - oat grains that need to be milled to powder and take long to cook
Rolled/old-fashioned oats - oat groats that have been processed, steamed, and flattened and take less amount of time to cook compared to steel-cut oats
Instant oats - the most processed form of oats that are quick to cook and get mushy easily - the market is flooded with instant oats

Let's get back to the oat milk recipe:
Ingredients

*1/4 cup - rolled oats (I have used Patanjali oats)
1 - cup water for use later (for a thicker milk consistency or 1 1/2 cup for a slightly thinner variation)
1/2 cup- water for soaking oats

Ingredients For added flavor:
2 pinches of cinnamon - optional (for flavor) - or any essence that you use for your bakes
2 drops of stevia/honey/agave nectar
1 tsp- cocoa powder
1 tbsp- homemade almond butter

The Process to Make Oat Milk at Home
Dry roast rolled oats first. I keep oats on a hot skillet after making rotis.Stir once or twice and your oats are roasted beautifully. Take a smell test and if they feel raw, you can roast them a little longer.
Let them cool down.
Add dry roasted oats to a bowl and add 1/2 cup of water. You can add more water here to ensure oats are immersed fully.
Allow this mix to rest for at least 2 hours. I kept it in the refrigerator overnight. Since it's hot these days in north India, you would do well to refrigerate this mix.
Take a tea strainer and strain the oat mix. Throw away this water in which oats were soaked.
Take a mixer/grinder/processor.
Add strained oats. Next add 1/2 cup water first.
Run the processor until oats look dissolved.
Add 1/2 cup of remaining water and blitz again.
If you wish to make flavorful oat milk, add cinnamon powder, cocoa powder, stevia or any other sweetener.
You can even add roasted nuts if you are not allergic to dry fruits.
I did not strain the mix. If you wish, you can use a cheesecloth or nut bag to strain the mix - oat milk before adding the flavor ingredients.
Enjoy soy-free, dairy-free, vegan oat milk as is!
Somebody had asked if this milk can be used for tea and coffee. Well, I do not take coffee,but have read a lot about oat milk use in coffee . So you can surely take a taste test here too!! You will have a new dairy-free concoction. Sounds interesting, right? This grain-rich milk tastes really great. You have got to believe my words!!

Tips:
For 1 cup of oats, you can add up to 3 cups of water to get a thinner consistency. For a thicker, creamier texture, go for less amount of water.

    1. Yes, we all have been using it thus far, but never thought of the product as a whole. Oats is indeed the best ingredient for one and all. Oat milk is surely going to rewrite many recipes.

Refined Sugar-Free Quinoa Digestives: Fiber Rich, Nutrient Dense, Sugarless Quinoa Recipe

Have you heard of quinoa digestives? I did an Internet search to find it out, but couldn't trace any quinoa digestives recipe. Perhaps we have yet not moved to supergrains when it comes to digestives. When it comes to digestives, most of us can't think beyond whole wheat flour and oats. Perhaps dgestives require fiber-rich oats because it gives the biscuit the perfect digestives structure. I love oats so much so that I have compiled a collection of over 200 oats recipes. Now coming to quinoa digestives recipe, I have tried out too many digestives, including amaranth digestives, pistachio digestives, Mcvities digestives, and Nutri choice-like digestives. This time I wanted to skip whole wheat and include quinoa. Yes, if you remember, I have already shared a few quinoa recipes here, including quinoa nankhatais without baking soda/baking powder.

What I did next was exactly this!
My goal with each recipe is to get the better out of me!  Quinoa substitutes whole wheat

Kid-Friendly Badam Oats Cookies: Sugarfree, Fiber Rich, Eggless

Recently, there is a Sunfeast advertisement on Moms Magic cookies. This has attracted my attention. So what happened next is history. As you already know me, the cookie big has bitten me badly, so I jumped into experimenting with badam cookies. I have never tasted these cookies from Sunfeast, as I do not buy outside biscuits these days. So the oats cookie recipe is the result of my own healthy baking experiment. Did the experiment disappoint?
Of course, not!

You have got to be a cookie lover to try out a new cookie every other day. My airfryer has made life easier for me, and I find it the best investment for my baking journey.

Ever since my airfryer homecoming, I have always chosen to go for airfryer cookies, and not touched my convection ever since. That's the beauty of airfryer baking.

Okay, so let's come back to the badam cookie recipe. Did I say this is a no raising agent cookie recipe?
