Easy Homemade Oat Milk

I don’t know about you, but when it comes to alternative milk, I am a believer in almond milk! Once I heard how delicious Oat milk was, I'll admit I was a little skeptical. When I tried it in a latte my feelings changed, and then I learned it was extremely easy and CHEAP to make at home!

After some research, I saw that a lot of people struggled with the milk ether being too slimy, watery or bland. So I rolled up my sleeves, searched the internet and got to testing recipes!

Since I don't own a cheesecloth, I found that an even better method was to use a dish towel! This material is thicker and doesn’t let through any of the pulp that makes the milk slimy. Thankfully I have dishcloths and I even found one that I had not used…more than once!    

To solve the flavor and texture trouble I chose to use less water and more sweetener than originally because I found that it was creamier and a better taste!
