The Benefits of Oat Milk (with Recipe)

  • 2 of 5

The average cup of oat milk available for purchase will contain about 4 g of protein, 130 calories, 2.5 g fat, 110 g sodium, 19 g sugar, 2 g fiber, and 24 grams of carbohydrates. Oat milk is also completely void of cholesterol and saturated fats.

Oat milk is an extremely health-concious choice, high in natural fiber and iron, and low in fat, sugars, and calories. Switching to oat milk is a preferable option if you are looking to lose weight.

Oat milk also provides many important vitamins and minerals including manganese, potassium, phosphorus, many B vitamins, vitamin E, and Vitamin A. Oat milk also contains a type of antioxidant called phytochemicals, which can protect against diseases including heart disease, stroke, and some cancers.

Those with a gluten intolerance have to avoid store bought oat milk, but can make it themselves using gluten free oats. Oats also have skin clearing properties and drinking oat milk has been known to clear acne and improve the overall health of the skin, as well as strengthen and repair hair.

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.

Blend!

I'm not vegan, but I do love soy, coconut, and rice milk. Just a few days ago I found oat milk and tried it, and it's sooo good. Making my own milk at home never even occurred t ome. Now I think I have to try it. Thanks

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.

MikI D, Care2 can't put the cheese cloth over your eyes. Keep up the good work and may you will get an offer for checking out the words before they hit cybrrrrr space!

The Australian oat milk is not very tasty, I will try to make my own.

Although we have several large supermarkets in our town, I have never seen oat-milk. I'd like to taste it before trying to make it - but perhaps I'll try making a small amount. It almost seems like having too much, considering I have oatmeal for breakfast each day. I've been using the other milk alternatives for some time now.
