The Benefits of Oat Milk (with Recipe)

The oats left in the nutcloth or cheesecloth after straining can be eaten, added to a smoothie, or used as a facial mask for clear and soft skin.

From here, you can experiment with adding anything you would like to your recipe. Oat milk is naturally sweet, but for a sweeter or even dessert-like drink, try adding sugar, brown sugar, molasses, maple syrup, or agave. For a special flavor you may like to add coconut shavings, or ripe strawberries or bananas. Adding the banana is also a good way to thicken the oat milk without worrying about lumps, and add some extra nutritional value. Some other suggested flavorings and spices for experimentation include cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, nutmeg, salt, vanilla, or chocolate.

Whether you choose to drink oat milk for the health benefits, taste, cheap cost, dairy intollerence, or vegan diet I hope that this article will help you enjoy your drink more by understanding the benefits of what you are consuming, and the enjoyment gained by making it yourself.

I found this smoothie recipe which is good for bowel health. Will make the oat milk needed for it, and in a smoothie, whatever the milk's flavour, it should be well masked with fruit!

1 cup oat milk
1 ripe banana
1 Tbsp slippery elm powder
1/2 cup coconut milk
2 kiwifruit or 1/2 cup berries.

Oops, error, grammatical error, forgot the be in maybe! Shocking! Drank too much hibiscus tea, may the Great Pumpkin forgive me...didn't finish proofreading, the neighbour's cat just gave She Who Must Be Obeyed (an elder sixteen year old cat) a whack of her paw while visiting me. The two younger cats have little respect for their elders! (Apologies to Charlie Brown).

I have quite a variety of oats so will be giving this a try soon. The days are getting shorter and the nights colder now that it is almost the end of October. Heated oat cereal is always welcome but one can also add oat milk to the breakfast as well. While I drink two percent milk there is always room for different liquid beverages and oats are wonderful.
