    Default making your own Oat Milk

    I've done searches in rec.food.cooking, but cannot find anything on how to
    actually make 'Oat milk'. we bought some recently from Tescos and it was
    good. and we now suspect that cow's milk may be connected to our son's
    migraine.

    would appreciate if anyone has a simple receipe for making oat milk please.
    thanks.

    4 cups (cold) water
    2 cups cooked oatmeal
    Pinch of salt (opt.)
    Sweetener to taste (if desired)

    Place all ingredients in blender and process until smooth about 2-3
    minutes. Refrigerate. Shake before using.


    Also consider rice milk...

    1 cup short grain rice, cooked until very soft
    4 cups hot water - cold water and cold rice won't work
    Pinch of salt (opt.)
    Sweetener to taste (if desired)

    Put all in blender, puree for about 5 minutes (until smooth) let sit for 30
    minutes or longer, then without shaking pour into container being careful
    not to let the sediments at the bottom pour into the new container.
    Alternatively, if you are in a hurry strain through cheesecloth.
    Refrigerate. Shake before using.

    Quick work, Wayne, but I hope no one thinks those concoctions can replace
    the proteins, minerals and calcium a child needs and usually gets from milk.
    I was allergic to cows milk as a baby and was given goat milk. Id I were
    given oatmeal milk I doubt I'd be here.

    Thanks for posting these, Wayne!

    Oatmeal is good for lowering cholesterol, and I drink a lot of milk anyway,
    so this recipe is a godsend.

    It was thought I was allergic to cows milk when I was...uh...I guess maybe
    eight or so. We found a farm just outside town that sold goats milk and
    I drank that for I dunno -- maybe a year or two. Either I outgrew the
    difficulty, or - most likely - it was a bad diagnosis; I've had no
    problems with cows milk since.

    I agree, Guisi, but it depends largely on the age of the child, the
    remaining diet, and how one intends to use these "milks". Of course,
    nutritional suplements could be added to either oat or rice milk to make it
    complete.

    Thanks for pointing this out.

    buttermilk.

    I don't think it's uncommon that these things change. I drank cow's
    milk fine as a kid. As a teen, it gave me cramps and diarrhea. I still
    don't drink it, at the age of 58. I don't know if it bothers me or not,
    I just never started it again. I put a little milk in my coffee, and
    use it for cooking, but I don't drink it.

    My younger son had major problems with cow's milk, and he didn't even
    drink it! He was completely breast fed. He was always cranky as a
    baby, until the pediatrician told my wife to stop drinking cow's milk.
    The baby was no longer cranky. He's 24 now, and sometimes averages 1/2
    gallon a day, with no problem.

    All those nutrients can be obtained from other foods or a simple
    supplement. Few UK or US kids drink/consume enough dairy to get
    everything they need solely from that source. It's more important to try
    relieve the child's migraines first and worry about making up the
    nutrition later. Oats at least have protein.

    Seems to be suffienct replies on how to oat milk.

    I just wanted to add that almond milk is also very nice, and just as easy
    to make 'milk' from. I often add cashew nuts to round out the flavour.

    Either way, give the oat/rice/nut/etc milks a try - they can be often a
    better choice than dairy. I primarily use mine in smoothies.

    Good luck.

    Would soaking rather than cooking work with oats?
    I find cashews and almonds, even chick peas soak rather well.

    Quite often it turns out that the /real/ culprit is the pasteurisation
    and/or homogenisation. Not always, but a lot more often than is generally

    You could be right Wayne (a great name, for sure .
    I guess the only way is for me to try it some time. I normally make nut
    milk, but might as well give oat milk a shot as even the commercial ones
    I have tried were quite nice.
