We thought this was going to be super hard, but it turns out that alternative milks are actually very easy to make and way cheaper than the store-bought options (and you save on disposable packaging!).

Oat Milk is so quick and easy to make, and it also is a super inexpensive non-dairy milk choice. It’s also great because even if you have run out of milk, you don’t need to soak the oats overnight!


  • 1 cup oats

  • 1.5 cups of Water

  • Blender

  • Sieve or cheesecloth


  1. Soak the oats in enough water to cover them.

  2. Blend in the blender.

  3. Add some flavor, such as honey if you want it sweet or some cinnamon, if you want more flavour, and then blend some more.

  4. Pour the liquid through a cheesecloth, fine sieve, or a nut milker to separate the solids from the milky liquids.

  5. Your oat milk is ready to drink!

  6. Store in the fridge in a closed-lid bottle for 3 days.
