How to make oat milk?

Making your own oat milk at home is a simple and affordable way to enjoy a creamy, plant-based milk alternative. Plus, it’s a great way to use up any leftover oats you might have in your pantry. Here’s how to make oat milk at home in just a few easy steps:


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 4 cups water
  • Optional: sweetener (maple syrup or agave nectar), vanilla extract, or a pinch of salt for flavor


  1. Rinse the oats under cold water and place them in a blender with the water.
  2. Blend the oats and water on high speed for 1-2 minutes, or until the oats are broken down and the mixture is smooth.
  3. Pour the oat mixture through a fine-mesh strainer or cheesecloth into a large bowl.
  4. Gently squeeze the strainer or cheesecloth to extract as much liquid as possible. Discard the solids.
  5. Transfer the oat milk to a clean jar or container and store it in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Optional flavorings:

  • For a sweeter version, add 1-2 tablespoons of sweetener to the blender along with the oats and water.
  • For a vanilla flavor, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the blender along with the oats and water.
  • For a slightly salty flavor, add a pinch of salt to the blender along with the oats and water.


  • If you prefer a thicker oat milk, use less water. If you prefer a thinner oat milk, use more water.
  • If you have a nut milk bag, you can use that instead of a strainer or cheesecloth to strain the oat mixture.
  • Oat milk will separate slightly in the fridge, so give it a good shake before using.

Enjoy your homemade oat milk in your favorite recipes or as a simple and refreshing drink on its own.
