Oat Milk: The Extensive Guide

Is oat milk good for you?

Oat milk can be a healthy, plant based milk, lactose-free addition to your diet. It is typically lower in fat and calories than cow's milk and contains vitamins and minerals such as vitamin D, calcium, and iron. Oat milk is also a good source of fibre. Our range of oats are non-contaminated, and filled with natural 

How to make oat milk?


  • 1 cup GF Oats
  • 1 1/2 litres water (you can substitute some of the water for Coconut Water if you like)
  • 2 dates


At least several hours before you're going to make the oat milk:

  1. Place the oats and dates in a bottle/container, pour the water over them, and shake or stir for a moment.
  2. Let them soak in the refrigerator for at least several hours or more; overnight is fine. The longer the soaking time the tastier the final product.

When you're ready to make your oat milk:

  1. Transfer the oat mixture into a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour the contents of the blender into a clean nut milk bag (muslin cloth will work fine also) that you've placed over a bowl large enough to hold all the oat milk, and strain it through the bag. This involves squeezing and kneading the bag. The idea is to get all the liquid through the bag, leaving only what's left of the solid oats inside.
  3. Your oat milk is now ready! Just pour it into clean glass jars, cover and refrigerate.

You will notice that after your oat milk has been sitting for a little while it will start to separate. Just shake it up before you use it

What does oat milk taste like?

Oat milk has a slightly sweet and nutty flavour with a creamy texture. Oat milk has grown in popularity due to its taste and texture being similar to that of cow’s milk, however, with a slightly thinner texture. 

Does oat milk have gluten?

It is difficult to find oat milk products that are considered gluten-free. It is important to check the labels on brands as most use oats that have been grown and processed in a facility that also processes wheat, barley, or rye. GF Oats provide a fabulous Oats Kit so you can easily make your own.
