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.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Let me tell you a little bit about me. I am a mom of two, a stepmom of 1, two wild and silly pups, and I have the best husband in the world. I also have a love of cooking and baking. I am always in the kitchen finding new recipes to try, recreating old family recipes, and reminiscing about the old ways. I am vintage at heart and love all things old and cast iron. I love spending time with the family and pups and just going where life takes us.
I created my blog a few years ago with my youtube channel because I thought that If I shared a recipe, then people just might like to see just how the recipe is put together. I share all of my family recipes along with today's recipes. Whether it is old-fashioned recipes, sourdough, einkorn, desserts, sheet pan meals, or even crockpot meals, they are all absolutely delicious.
I spend hours, if not days, creating and dabbling with recipes to make sure they are the best for you and your family. All of my recipes are family tested and family-approved before they are ever posted to my blog or youtube channel.
Every now and again I will share some behind-the-scenes fun and chaos of our creations and family adventures. I hope you all stick around and join us here at The Southern Rustic and see what we cook up in my kitchen. You can find all of my social media information in the Contact/Donate OR the Social Media Accounts tab on my home page. There I have listed my Instagram pages, YouTube channel, Email, and other information so you can easily find everything in one place.
I hope that you all have a wonderful, wonderful day and I will see you soon.
