I love making my own oat milk at home, but it can get a little slimy if you aren’t careful. Here are a few tricks I’ve learned that will help you make oat milk that’s just as good as store-bought:
Keep the water cold. Do not blend your oats for too long. (20 seconds is all you need!). And if you use a milk bag to strain your oat milk, be careful not to squeeze it too much.
