Oats milk, the traditional recipe

 

Ingredients

  • 1 litre of  hot water (60-80ºC)
  • 50 grams of rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon of cane sugar, agave, guarapo or honey (optional)
  • 1/5 of a lemon peel
  • ½ teaspoon of a cinnamon powder or a cinnamon stick, broken into pieces
  • A pinch of salt

Preparation

  1. Put one litre of hot water (60-70ºC) in the Chufamix container
  2. Add the rolled oats, salt, lemon peel, cinnamon and the sweetener that you wish to the filtering-glass
  3. With a mixer, mix the oats for approximately one minute.
  4. Leave it soaking for 5 minutes
  5. Raise the filtering-glass out of the water and use the Chufamix mortar to squash it until you squeeze the last drops from the oats.

Water temperature

When making a drink from oats, the water temperature is important because oats contain an ingredient which thickens in high temperature (mucilage). Because of this, if we make the drink with boiling water, the drink will be very thick, like a yogurt. This is fine if you want to make a dessert, or a croquette, but you won’t be able to drink it.

Thus, if you want a classical oat milk, the water should be between 60-70 ° C to avoid over thickening and you must use exactly 50 grams of oats, if not, the experience can be a disaster.

Tips

  • If it is too thick, you can always add more water and mix it until it is homogeneous, or use fewer oats when making it.
  • Some Chufamix users have told us that they´ve used thick oats flakes and the result is similar, so size doesn´t matter!!!!!
  • A Chufamix user has told us to grind the flakes with the mixer before making the drink, to make the most of the oats and to leave less pulp.
