Oats milk with rolled oats


  • 1 litre of  hot water (60-70ºC)
  • 50 grams of rolled oats

  • 1/5 of a lemon peel
  • ½ teaspoon of a cinnamon powder or a cinnamon stick, broken into pieces
  • A pinch of salt
homemade oat milk lactose free


  1. Put one litre of hot water (60-70ºC) in the Vegan Milker container
  2. Add the rolled oats, salt, lemon peel, cinnamon and the sweetener that you wish to the filtering-glass
  3. With a mixer, mix the oats for approximately one minute.
  4. Leave it soaking for 5 minutes
  5. Raise the filtering-glass out of the water and use the Vegan Milker mortar to squash it until you squeeze the last drops from the oats.

Water temperature

When making a drink from oats, the water temperature is important because oats contain an ingredient which thickens in high temperature (mucilage). Because of this, if we make the drink with boiling water, the drink will be very thick, like a yogurt. This is fine if you want to make a dessert, or a croquette, but you won’t be able to drink it.

Thus, if you want a classical oat milk, the water should be between 60-70 ° C to avoid over thickening and you must use exactly 50 grams of oats, if not, the experience can be a disaster.


  • If it is too thick, you can always add more water and mix it until it is homogeneous, or use fewer oats when making it.
  • Some Vegan Milker users have told us that they’ve used thick oats flakes and the result is similar, so size doesn’t matter!!!!!
  • A Vegan Milker user has told us to grind the flakes with the mixer before making the drink, to make the most of the oats and to leave less pulp.
  • Don’t waste its pulp, it’s great for cooking! You have some ideas into the Pulps section of this blog.

P.D: You can also make raw grain oat milk.

    Dear all,

    I am looking for a good barista oat milk recipe to use for my lattes (creamy thick layer). Now I am bying these expensive Oatly packs wich contain sunflower oil and other ingredients. However, a normal oat milk won’t give the same result. I do have the chufamix and want to use it to make a healthy nutrious barista oat milk.
    Anybody a recipe that works?

  2. Wendy

    Hoi Ariane, ik heb exact dezelfde vraag. Ben je er inmiddels al achter? Ik hoor het heel graag! Groetjes Wendy

    You need to add oil or some other fat to it. Either sunflower oil or you need to add cashews or coconut flakes, to give that required fat. Minimalist Baker.

      Thanks Mark for share these tips!

    I use rolled oats (70%) soaked cashews(30%) and cold water – I find that gives enough natural oils to make good microfilm for coffee lattes. It is also ridiculously creamy and the pulp makes luxurious oatcakes

    • lechevegetal

      Hi Mark, thanks for your input, I take note to do the test, great! One question, 70% of oats you calculate on 50 gr? That is, you propose 35g of oat flakes and 15g of cashews per liter? Did I understand correctly?
