First batch of oat milk this morning 🥛🌾 Seeing the packaging waste from bought milk makes me squirm. So for the past 6 months I've been on the journey of DIY milk. Almond milk has been a treat. Using the almond meal by-product to make power balls and hummus has been a hoot 🥜 Oat milk has been an exciting discovery. Oats can tend to slime when whizzed, but they're friendlier on the wallet & more common in my cupboard 🍯 Most alternative milk recipes follow a similar method. Soak 1 cup nut/oats overnight with 4 cups water. Blend, then strain through a nut milk bag or tea towel. I then top up with more water to spread the love, et voila! It'll last for a couple of days, maybe 5, in the fridge 🥄 By keeping my cupboard stocked with all the goodness, I can choose which milk to prep the following day without a scrap o' waste. And lots of by-product treats to indulge the kitchen 💛 Yes it's more effort, but way more fun and satisfying!
