Unsweetened, Unflavored or Plain oat milk works great in both savory and sweet dishes!  I use it in baked goods in place of milk, and also in savory dishes in place of cream.  It has a very mild flavor and tastes great – perfect for cooking in savory recipes and using as a substitution for dairy milk.

This Unsweetened Oat Milk Recipe Is:

  • Creamy
  • Simple
  • Easy to make
  • Made with Pantry-Staple Ingredients
  • Earthy
  • Great in Sweet or Savory Recipes
  • Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free

If you are looking for a sweeter version, look no further! My Chocolate Oat Milk recipe is one of my most popular recipes on this site: it’s creamy and delicious, not too sweet!  If you are looking for an oat milk recipe that is unflavored and has a more natural taste this savory oat milk is perfect!

The Best Blender for the Job

I’ve owned a lot of blenders, but my Vitamix is definitely the best one I’ve owned. This high-speed blender will blend even the toughest of ingredients into pulp.  I prefer using my blender to my food processor for sauces like this or homemade hummus, as it’s much easier to clean the Vitamix. This is definitely one kitchen appliance we use on a daily basis!

  1. .Combine 1 cup oats, 4 cups water, and pinch of salt to a blender.  Allow the ingredients to sit for 10 minutes before blending.
  2. Blend on high for 30 seconds.  Strain immediately though a fine mesh strainer, cheese cloth, or a nut milk bag. Allow the milk to strain naturally, don’t press or force it through the bag (this can cause it to become gummy/slimy).
  3. Use as you would regular milk: pour over cereal, use in baked goods, or add to savory recipes for a hint of creaminess.

      Hello Barb – I store the oat milk in an airtight container (I use a mason jar), and it should keep for up to 2 days. If it begins to seperate, just shake it before serving.
