Recipes with oats milk

If you are vegan or you want to eat in a more ethical way, or you simply like oats milk, here are see some recipes to use this beverage to its fullest.

Meanwhile, oats milk, unlike cow’s milk, is artificially produced by processing hulled oats: its preparation is very simple and can also be done at home, but it is also easily available on the market.

It is a completely vegetable based food and this makes it particularly suitable for those who follow a vegan diet and, moreover, being lactose-free, it can also be consumed by lactose intolerant people, as a valid alternative to cow’s milk.

Oats milk is very light: it has about 45 kcal per litre (compared to about 65 kcal for cow’s milk) and is completely cholesterol-free.

It is quite versatile and can be used in both sweet and savory recipes.



Let’s start with the simplest way, which is to combine oats milk with something tasty such as banana.

Blend half a banana with oats milk to obtain a very sweet and creamy smoothie. Those who prefer an even sweeter beverage can add some sugar, but if you use a very ripe banana there will be no need and in any case always prefer natural sweeteners.
