  • Soak oats in purified water for at least 30 minutes, but up to 12 hours. Long soaking softens the oats and helps remove the phytic acid that inhibits proper digestion.
  • After soaking, drain and rinse the oats well. You want to wash the oats thoroughly so that your oat milk is not gooey like oatmeal. Discard the rinse water.
  • Put soaked, rinsed, drained oats into blender, add 3 cups of purified water, sea salt, and spices or sweetener, if using. Blend for 1-2 minutes.
  • Strain in a cheesecloth or nut milk bag to remove pulp. Use excess pulp as fiber for smoothies or to make oatmeal treats.
  • Store in a jar in the refrigerator and use within 3-5 days. Shake well before using.
