Many people like to drink milk alternatives to dairy, and the most popular are soy, almond, and rice milk. I enjoy these three types of milk too, but I prefer their homemade version. They require a three-step process of soaking, blending, and straining. Once I started making my own almond milk regularly, I realized there was nothing stopping me from making milks with other nuts: hazelnuts, pecans, pistachios, Brazil nuts, cashews, walnuts… If you have a nut, you can easily turn it into milk! The same applies to seeds such as flax, sesame, sunflower, and pumpkin seeds. And the story is very similar in the case of cereals. If you can make rice milk, then you can also make milk out of other cereals! My mom taught me how to make quinoa milk, and also how to make oatmeal milk. The latter is particularly good to prepare creamy smoothies, and we experimented a lot with it while we were working on our upcoming detox juicing book. You can use this energizing oatmeal and green tea milk to replace dairy milk. Splash it over your bowl of cereal or granola, turn it into a delicious hot chocolate, or use it as the base for any and all of your smoothies. MORE + LESS -

    Bring the water, spices, and tea bags to a boil for 2 minutes. Turn the heat off, cover, and let everything infuse for 15 minutes. Strain and let the water cool down to room temperature.
  • 2
    Add the oats to the water, and let infuse for 15 minutes.
  • 3
    Transfer oatmeal and water to a blender and process until completely smooth. You can drink it like this, or strain it if you want smoother milk. If it’s too thick for your taste, add some more water and blend again. Serve and enjoy!

Expert Tips

  • This milk will become thicker as it sits in your fridge, because the oatmeal keeps absorbing water. If you want it less thick, drink it immediately.
