I’ve been resisting the urge to become “that kind of vegan” for a while now but seeing as I have made my own but cheese for a few years now I knew with the onset of zero waste making my own plant milk would be next on the menu!
I did a quick search online and I simply needed 100g of oats and 750ml of water.
I buy my organic oats plastic free from Zero Waste Club. So this milk is truly zero waste and costs 40p rather than the £1.60 that oat milk goes for in the supermarket.
The process is pretty straightforward.
1. Soak oats for at least 30 minutes
2. Rinse oats and discard soaking water
3. Blend oats and water together
4. Strain through cheese cloth
5. Transfer to bottle
I bought this gorgeous glass bottle in Sainsbury’s to use for my homemade milk.
You can use one litre of water if you like your milk a little thinner but I loved the mouth feel of this when I had it in a latte.
Have you considered making your own plant milk? I think I’m going to try hemp next as I can get hemp seeds on Zero Waste Club too. If you give it a try let me know how you get on in the comments below.
