I choose not to drink cow’s milk because it doesn’t really agree with my system and I am not in a position to get the organic, hormone free, un-pasturised variety. I usually add a small bit of soy milk to my coffee, tea and smoothies but am wary of consuming too much of this as it is quite processed (many varieties are loaded with additives like sugar and oil).

A solution… make my own oat milk. This is a great tasting option that can be made very quickly and easily from 3 simple whole ingredients: oats, salt and water.

Oat Milk
1 cup rolled oats
1.5 Litre of cold filtered water
pinch Himalayan salt

Add all ingredients to a large clean bowl and soak over night covered with a cloth.
Use a blender or stick blender to wiz the ingredients thoroughly (about 2 minutes).
Strain the milk through a fine sieve or muslin cloth into a bowl.
Store in a clean glass jar in the fridge.
Will keep for several days.
