Oat Milk – The secret to non gooey Oat Milk
Comments Off on Oat Milk – The secret to non gooey Oat Milk
non slimy oat milk

Every recipe that I found for oat milk spoke about how to avoid it being gooey. I followed all the so called fail safe recommendations and still it was impossible to avoid some of the goo.

I then had a brain wave 🙂 and realized that it was the heat that was causing the goo. Take a look and see how I solved the problem and created non gooey oat milk.
The recipes are pretty much the same but it’s the method that makes the difference.

My Recipe for Oat Milk

  • ½ cup tiger oats (Quick oats will also work)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 date (chopped)
  • Pinch salt

Blend ingredients together in a super blender until the oats are no longer discernible and definitely befor the liquid starts warming

Pour through a regular fine steel sieve and refrigerate.

The key to the milk not becoming gooey is for the milk not to get warm. By using the ice it keeps it cool and the result is non gooey oat milk.

How to make delicious shakes with oat milk.

Pour half of the milk from the above recipe into the jug of a super blender. I use either my Vitamix Explorian or MiHealthmaker.

  • 1 banana
  • 1 Apple
  • ½ pineapple
  • 2 granadillas
  • 3 blocks ice

Any similar quantity of fruit will make a delicious fruit shake, and if you add some spinach or kale you have a green shake.

Tip: To make it pink add a ¼ tsp raw beetroot

Oats are naturally gluten free

According to Bokomo, oats ARE gluten free so there is no need to buy specially packaged oats that are labeled ‘Gluten free’

“Gluten is a family of proteins found in grains like wheat, rye, spelt and barley. For celiac disease sufferers, gluten can be very harmful, causing damage to digestive systems, bloating, rashes and weight loss. Thankfully, oats contain no gluten, making them a perfect breakfast for celiac disease sufferers and people who want to lower their gluten intake.”

This is the first of 5 reasons Bokomo encourage you to add oats to your diet.

Print Recipe
A quick and easy 2-ingredient, 5-minute way to make homemade oat milk! Naturally creamy and sweet, and perfect for smoothies, granola, and more!
  1. 1. Add oats, water, salt, and any additional add-ins (optional) to a high-speed blender. Top with lid and cover with a towel to ensure it doesn't splash. Blend for about 1 minute or until the mixture seems well combined. It doesn't have to be 100% pulverized. In fact, over-blending can make the oat milk slimy in texture.
  2. 2. Scoop out a small sample with a spoon to test flavor/sweetness. If it's not sweet enough, add more dates.
  3. 3. Pour the mixture over a large mixing bowl or pitcher covered with a very thin towel or a clean T-shirt. In my experience, it benefits from a double strain through a very fine towel to remove any oat remnants. A nut milk bag seemed to let too much residue through.
  4. 4. Transfer to a sealed container and refrigerate. Will keep in the refrigerator up to 5 days (sometimes more). Shake well and enjoy cold. DO NOT HEAT or it will thicken and become gelatinous in texture. It's delicious as is or added to granola,
Recipe Notes

Notes *You can use steel-cut oats, but I found them to make the oat milk gummy and didn't enjoy their flavor as much. *Nutrition information is a rough estimate calculated with no additional add-ins, and the oat "pulp" nutritional content removed. Nutrition Per Serving (1 of 8 half-cup servings)
