Oat Milk

Cuisinart original


Alternative milks do not just have to be for those who are sensitive to dairy. They each offer different health benefits and are a breeze to make in the Cuisinart® blender. On top of that, they are much less expensive to make at home than to purchase in the store, especially oat and rice milks. You can sweeten them as you wish, or even add a pinch of cinnamon. The only caveat is that homemade milks do not last as long in the refrigerator as their store-bought counterparts since there are no stabilizers added.


Makes about 3 cups


1          cup old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick cooking)

4          cups water, divided

            Pinch kosher salt
