Homemade oat milk in old fashioned milk jug


There are a lot of dairy-free milk options out there these days but have you tried oat milk yet?  Folks say it’s extra creamy compared to it’s more watery counterparts like almond milk.  We are grateful to Marisa Moore, the registered dietician nutritionist for providing us with her homemade oat milk recipe below.  We recently had the privilege of talking with her on our podcast (listen here) and enjoyed hearing about how she started her food blog and mastered food photography, her love of chickpeas, and how hard work combined with taking chances have led her to becoming her own boss in a rewarding career field.  Listen in and get to know Marisa.

Oat milk is all the rage these days and for good reason.  Offering an ultra smooth, creamy, and delicious texture, oat milk keeps people coming back for more.  It works beautifully in hot drinks adding an element of richness you crave in a dairy-free milk option.  Sometimes oats can contain gluten and/or rapeseed oil so when you’re looking for it in the stores, make sure to look for gluten-free and organic brands.  It’s a bit pricey though so you might consider making it at home.  It’s a ridiculously easy process of combining oats and water.  Marisa adds a smidge of maple syrup to sweeten it up: yum!  This recipe is definitely worth the tiny bit of effort to make it, so give it try and enjoy.
