Knowing how to make oat milk using a Milk Frother is a handy thing to know. Particularly because it can be used as a substitute for cow’s or soya milk in coffee and tea without any loss of quality. It can even substitute cream as such because it will produce fine and tasty foam (froth).
Oat milk does not contain cholesterol or lactose; therefore, those who are allergic or sensitive to these foodstuffs should consume oat milk with no negative effects. The remaining components of oat milk include protein, mono- and di-glycerides, potassium (K), sodium (Na), calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), phosphate (P) and sulphate (S). In addition to this, oat milk also contains beta-glucans, dietary fiber and trace elements such as boron (B), copper (Cu), chlorine (Cl), nickel (Ni), silicon (Si) and vanadium (V).
These make the drink a nutritive tonic which can improve its bacterial fermentation properties. Furthermore, it is a good source of minerals for teeth because calcium and magnesium strengthen the enamel coating of teeth against decay from microorganisms in the mouth. It additionally contains vitamin B1, which boosts metabolism and energy levels. Therefore making it beneficial for those who wish to lose weight because their energy expenditure is going to increase. The peptic enzymes found within oats help down food into even smaller components for easier digestion.
Oat milk is a perfect choice for vegans and lactose-intolerant people. It’s an alternative to soy, rice, coconut and almond milk because it tastes delicious with a subtle sweetness.
This article will help you make your oat milk at home and tell you how to use this product to get the best frothing from it.
We recommend using organic oats as they are rich in taste and nutrients. However, if you can’t find them or do not want to spend more on groceries, you can always buy conventional oats, which are cheaper but still healthy enough to drink every day.
Different types of oats in oat milk
Steel-cut oats are whole grain oat groats that have been chopped into smaller pieces. They look similar to brown rice and take longer to cook, but they provide a desirable creamy texture when blended with water.
Rolled oats are steamed oat groats pressed with a roller to break them into two or three pieces.
You can use both of these types for making oat milk so you can choose the one you like best.
As we mentioned before, you should use organic oats as better for your health and environment than conventionally grown ones. You can easily find them in any grocery store or order online. The price is quite affordable, and it’s worth spending more on healthy food!
Make your own oat milk for coffee
Soaking the oats is the first step in preparing your oat milk. There are two methods to do this: quick-soak and long-soak.
The difference between them is that you leave rolled oats for 8 hours in the first case, while in the second one, you soak them overnight.
Long-soaked is better as it gives a more smooth texture to the final product, but you can choose either of these methods depending on your time availability.
Do not forget to rinse before cooking! It will help remove most of the soap residue left after the manufacturing process.
The next step is cooking opatmeal with water. You’ll need 2 cups of freshwater per cup of dry oats.
Cook at medium heat until all liquid has been absorbed. You can use your rice cooker or pour the mixture into a saucepan and stir until thickened.
Once you cook the oats, let them cool down to room temperature and transfer to a blender.
Keep blending for several minutes, but make sure you do not overdo it as it may lead to an unpleasant odor of burned milk (don’t ask us how we know this).
Now you can put your oat milk in an airtight container. It will last for three days if covered with water, during one week without it.
You can also freeze oat milk for up to 3 months if you want to keep it longer. Or drink every day as we do! :)that you know how easy it is to prepare oat milk at home! Stay tuned for more useful and fun articles to come.
