  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 4 cups filtered water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 pinch kosher salt


  • Add the oats and water to a high-speed blender (or any blender you have) and blend until the oats have broken down and the liquid looks creamy, about 30 seconds to a minute. Do not blend more then needed or the oat milk will get slimy.

  • Allow the milk to strain through at its own pace. If you try to squish or push the milk through, the milk will get slimy.
