This is a really quick and easy non-dairy, vegan Oat Mylk that is beautifully flavoured and doesn’t have any sliminess!!! If you’ve ever tried to make Oat Mylk at home, chances are you’ve discovered that Oat Mylk has a really common tendency to go slimy once you activate those enzymes that bind the oats together (that’s why it so good in porridge!!!), but don’t be put off because we have found the perfect way to make Oat Mylk without it being slimy!
Follow these 3 tips to delicious (non-slimy) oat mylk:
TIP 1: WATER – only use ice-cold water when you make your oat mylk
TIP 2: NO SQUEEZING – don’t squeeze the nut mylk bag/cloth when you are passing the mylk through it into your jug/container, just let it filter through.
TIP 3: BLEND TIME – only blend for 30 seconds, do not over-blend (the heat generated from the blades, will activate the oats and it will turn slimy
