Thier are many verities of milk that you can make and they are all very good. Being someone who cannot drink (nor want to) Cows milk or other dairy type milk. I never really been able to. Although I am not lactose intolerant to dairy and I have been tested I just simply can’t drink it.
Here is another recipe for milk that I have loved to drink growing up. This recipe is Oatmilk. It has a lot of benefits for you and is very healthy for you as well. It has been shown to contain 16 vitamins and 10 minerals. 1 cup of oat milk holds 36% of your recommended dietary allowance of calcium. It is loaded with vitamin A, C, B, D, and E. It also contains 10 % of your daily allowance of Iron. It is high in magnesium and this helps boost the production of enzymes that regulate insulin secretion. It also helps utilize the glucose in the body. It is low in fat and calories. It is cholesterol free and high in soluble fiber.
With all this being said, Here is the recipe.
1/2 cup Oats ( I use bobs red mill rolled oats)
1 date, pitted
4 cups filtered water plus 1 cup for soaking.
- In a bowl combine the oats and the date and pour over 1 cup of warm filtered water. Allow this to soak for 1 hour.
- After one hour drain the oats and date through a fine mesh sieve.
- Add the oat mixture to a blender and pour the other 4 cups of filtered water in the blender. Blend until completely smooth and well blended. This should take about 2 to 3 minutes.
- Pour the mixture through a nut milk bag or a cheesecloth and squeeze out the milk into a large bowl. You can keep the pulp and use it in smoothies or baking.
- When all of the milk is squeezed out into the bowl pour the milk through a funnel into a glass jar with a lid and store in the refrigerator. This will last up to 5 days.
