You ever get this sense of wanting more done to your coffee? Like wanting to make it zestful and full of spice along with added energetic vibes? Well, I did.
I started to experiment and scroll through the various plant based items I had in the cabinets. I realized I had plenty of oats available and plenty of rice. I’ve had Rice Milk in my coffee before and it was okay but it didn’t offer, that thick and creamy consistency I crave for in my cup of joe. Forward now, to me making my first batch of Oat Milk!
It was very simple and yet I still wanted to add some extra stuff to it; So I did! I added AllSpice, Cinnamon, and Nutmeg to it before blending it together with water—A blender must be used for this recipe; Consistency is key! I will give further details below:
AllSpice , Opt.
Dates or Raisins, Opt. Sweeteners
Water( Make sure the water is equivalent to the amount of oats used; 1/2 Oats = 1/2 H2O)
Strainer or Nut Straining Bag
Large Pitcher or bowl
Add your amount of oats and add-ins aka optionals to the blender. Then add the water. Blend for about 1-2 minutes or until you see that all the ingredients are smoothly blended together. Then strain the now, Oat Milk. Then store inside of the pitcher and place it, in your fridge.
Bravo, you now have Oat milk!!
Honestly, I was very surprised with my results because it was so smooth and creamy. I truly loved it. I immediately added some to my nice hot cup of coffee!
Now, I make it as often as possible and oh yeah,… each batch should be consumed within less than a week. I mean, I drink mine within 2-4 days since I drink it alone or with my coffee. I also made a plain batch of Oat milk, minus the optional add-ins.
I think I should have added a photo but I didn’t because I was in heaven sipping on my wonderful cup of coffee with my new found glory, Oat Milk. 🙂
