Recipe – Oat Milk

Before Christmas Eli began being sick everyday at around 1pm. (Sorry TMI!) He would literally empty himself and was then fine! This went on for a couple of weeks and we decided we needed to change something, so we changed his milk. He was on whole, cows milk, having 3, 250ml bottles a day. We put him on soya milk. There wasn’t a clear reason why we chose soya but we did. And it worked! The sick stopped 🙂 Yay!!
However, I then started to look into soya milk and decided I wasn’t happy with this choice for many reasons. After a lot of deliberation and research, we are happy with oat milk and I can make it myself! So I know exactly what is in it 🙂
We are making changes to his diet to make sure he is getting enough calcium and calories.
So here is my first batch of Oat Milk:

To make you need:

100g Rolled Oats
1.5 litres of water

In a large bowl add the oats and water. Give it a good stir and then cover the bowl.
Leave the mixture to soak over night.
Once soaked, take a stick blender and blitz for a few minutes.
Strain the mix with a fine sieve/muslin or similar into a clean bowl/jug.
Now pour into a container (large jar or bottle, glass is preferable).
Will last about a week in the fridge.

Yields just over 1.5 litre.

Enjoy 🙂
