How to make oat milk
The only two ingredients in this recipe from the Minimalist Baker blog are rolled oats and water. You first take 1 cup of rolled oats and pour them in a blender along with four cups of water. Run it at high speed for 30-45 seconds. For the creamiest and smoothest consistency, you can then strain it through a clean t-shirt, towel or cheese rag. This oat milk can be enjoyed in coffee, with cereal, oatmeal and many more foods. You can also choose to add vanilla or other powders or extracts that will give it flavoring. 

This home-made oatmeal can last up to five days if sealed and in the fridge. The pulp, which is the thick mixture left over after straining the milk, can be used for lots of recipes. Here are a few ideas from the Minimalist Baker you might want to try, including cookies, muffins, brownies and apple crisp.  And guess what?
