Equipment

  • Chufamix (container, filter, pestle and lid)
  • Hand blender
  • Small pot
  • Bottle

Ingredients
  

  • 50 g Rolled oats
  • 1 liter Water
  • 1 Walnut kernel
  • 1 pinch Fine salt

Instructions
 

  • Heat 1 liter of water at a temperature of 70 °C. The water should be warm, but more importantly, not hot. So turn off the fire just the first bubbles appear on the bottom of the pot.
  • Transfer the warm water into the Chufamix container (container + filter), add oats, walnut kernel and salt.
  • Grind with the hand blender for 30 seconds.
  • Lift the Chufamix filter and with the help of the pestle, very gently, press to strain the oat milk, as much as possible.
  • The oat milk obtained can be stored in the Chufamix container or, as I do, transferred to a glass bottle.
  • Wait for the oat milk to cool then store it in the fridge. The oat milk can be kept for 3 – 4 days.

Notes

Variations:
  1. If you want more or less liquid oat milk, simply play on the temperature of the water. For example, by decreasing the water temperature you get a more liquid milk, with less mucilage.
  2. If you like, you can sweeten oat milk by adding one of these ingredients: some raisins (softened in warm water), a date, a few grams of brown sugar, a pinch of cinnamon…
 
What about the pulp that remains in the filter? Obviously nothing is wasted! The pulp (the name is okara) can be used to make a lot of savory or sweet recipes. Soon I will propose you some of them.
 
Oat milk can be heated in the microwave or with a pot on the stove, but with care! The secret is not to boil the milk, in this way the formation of mucilage, a type of fiber in which oats are rich, is prevented.
 
The self-production of oat milk provides a significant savings but above all a lower environmental impact. In addition, if you pay proper attention to the origin of oats when buying, you will not contribute to those plantations that use pesticides.
