Last week we visited Israel.
We arrived at night from the airport straight to our house.
I was already able to imagine the wonderful cup of coffee I will drink in our beloved garden the next morning.
When it was time for my morning coffee,
I discovered that the milk, which I was sure was waiting for me in the cupboard, was not there.
I decided that I would not give up my coffee experience at any cost.
I put all the milk ingredients into the blender and in a few quick and fun minutes I made the most fun oat milk out of oats,
water, maple syrup and salt.
It required a few minutes of preparation from me and stayed with me for five wonderful days.
It went perfectly with every cup of coffee I paired with it,
With every bowl of children’s breakfast cereal,
And of course, it was perfect as is, in a glass – indulgent and good milk.
It moved me,
The fact I made my own milk in a few quick minutes.
The cups of coffee with It were more indulgent and tasty,
The moment with the coffee was more magical and wonderful,
Making it was filled with a lot of joy in my heart.
From that moment I realized that I had to share with you the wonderful experience of this quick and stunning recipe.
With the fun that it brought into my life,
Being accessible and available,
In its lightness,
In that it fits into anything you choose for it,
In that it accompanies us for five days,
In its happiness,
And with the joy it gives.
I felt I had to share with you, that thanks to it we can keep our world greener,
We reduce the use of milk cartons,
We reduce consumption of additives found in our purchased milk.
I was simply captivated by the great sustainability hidden behind this recipe,
And I realized that it’s news that I have to share with you.
This is a quick and accurate recipe.
Which combines three main raw materials,
A few quick minutes of preparation,
And one big magic!
Because this is a recipe that once it enters your kitchen it will stay there forever.
Happy milk days to us all 🙂
Homemade Oat Milk
Ingredients: suitable for 500ml of milk
- ⅓ cup oat (whichever oats you choose – whole / instant / quick)
- 2 cups water (500ml)
- ¼ cup maple syrup (For alternatives, have a look at “A little extra from me”)
- A tiny pinch of salt
Extra flavor (Not a must)
- A little vanilla extract / a little cinnamon powder
- In the blender, put all the ingredients, the oats, water, maple syrup, salt and extra flavor (If we chose to add it) and grind well.
- Filter the milk through a dense strainer or through a tetra cloth. If you choose a strainer, use a fork or a spoon for easier filtering (Move the mass left and right). If you choose a tetra cloth, it’s important to squeeze it well from all liquids using both hands.
- Transfer our milk to a glass bottle or jar that can be closed.
Take the milk out of the fridge every time you want a pampering cup of coffee, a wonderful bowl of cereal, or just a glass of delicious and good milk 🙂
A little extra from me:
- The milk can be kept in the fridge in a sealed glass bottle / sealed jar for up to 5 days.
- You can make indulgent pancakes from the leftover oats that you squeezed: in a bowl, put the leftover oats, one mashed ripe banana, an egg and a pinch of salt and mix well. With the help of a spoon, make small and sweet fritters and fry them in a hot pan.
- You can omit the maple syrup or replace it with dates without the seed / any other sweetener of your choice.
- I do not recommend giving up the pinch of salt, it has an important role in strengthening the flavors and keeping the milk fresh for a long time.
