Easy Almond Oat Milk Recipe

Let’s talk milk, folks.

In this case an Easy Almond Oat Milk.

Oat Milk Recipe

Are you a milk fan?

As a kid, much like almost everyone who’s reading this, I was told that dairy milk was good for me and that I should slurp it down for calcium intake to not wither away into a loathsome sack of vitamin D deficient fractured bones. It turns out that there are many ways to get essential vitamins and minerals without dairy – as all of my lactose intolerant and Vegan friends are well aware of.

Oat Milk Recipe

Personally, it’s been years since I’ve had a glass of regular milk and I can’t imagine it any other way. Even if that’s not you – I encourage you to try this delicious recipe.

Oat Milk Recipe

Almonds and Oats pack a punch of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc. In the grand scheme of things, making your own dairy-free milk is not only a good way to control the preservatives, sweeteners, and flavors that you’re putting in your body, but cheaper than many store-bought alternatives.

Oat Milk Recipe

* 1 cup raw almonds (toast them in the oven for 8-10 minutes beforehand for an extra delicious taste, totally optional)
* 1/2 cup oats
* 4 cups water (divided)
* 1 to 2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey or agave nectar
* 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
* Dash sea salt
* Pinch cinnamon (optional)


  1. Soak the almonds and oats in water at least 4 hours, or overnight in the refrigerator. Drain the almonds and oats, then rinse until the water runs clear. Add the almond mixture and two cups water to a blender. Start on a low setting and increase the speed until the mixture is totally pulverized. This could take 2 minutes in a high-powered blender or longer in a regular blender.
  2. Blend in 2 cups more water*, your sweetener of choice, vanilla extract, sea salt and cinnamon (optional). If your blender can’t totally break down the almonds, strain the milk through a fine mesh strainer or cheese cloth or nut milk bag (yes, that’s actually a thing. I recommend something like this). Store the milk in a covered container in the refrigerator. It should keep for 3 to 5 days.

* Yields about 5 cups almond oat milk.

*The ratio of water to almonds/oats (4 to 1) in this recipe yields milk that is somewhere between 2% and whole milk in terms of creaminess. Use less water for even creamier results.
* You can toast the almonds, oats, or both for a little bit more hearty flavor.
