In the battle for alt milk supremacy, oats are near the top of the pack. Although almond milk is still the king in this supermarket segment, oat milk has seen a dramatic surge in recent years. In fact, current estimates suggest oat milk sales totaled about $213 million in 2020.

While it’s super easy to buy pre-made oat milk, it can get pretty pricey. Luckily for your pocketbook, it doesn’t take too much effort to make a DIY glass of oat milk. Plus, our super healthy oat milk recipe goes great with a pinch of Tribe CBD oil!

Oatly Meets Tribe CBD — Taste Tribe’s DIY CBD Oat Milk Recipe

Are alternative milks truly healthier than cow’s milk? Well, that all depends on who you ask.

In general, choosing the “healthiest milk” will depend on your preferences and circumstances. For instance, lactose-intolerant folks obviously won’t favor dairy milk. Also, people with nut allergies have to avoid almond and cashew varieties.

When you examine each milk’s nutritional profile, you’ll find each has its pros and cons. For instance, cow’s milk has more protein and naturally-occurring vitamin D than almond or oat. However, oat milk has a fair amount of fiber in the form of beta-glucans.

One thing that’s for sure is plant-based milks are “healthier” for the environment. Recent research suggests cow’s milk requires 120 liters of water per glass, but oat milk only needs 5 – 10 liters. Since almonds require so much water to grow, they’re not so hot at 70 liters per glass.

In terms of airborne pollution, dairy milk is by far the worst at about ¼ kg of gases per glass. By comparison, most plant-based milks produce about 0.2 kg of greenhouse gas per glass.

A common complaint people have with DIY oat milk is that it’s “slimy.” While there’s nothing unsafe about this slick sheen of slime, it can make the drinking experience a little gross.

Thankfully, you could use some neat hacks to get rid of this unpleasant texture. For starters, you’ve got to use high-quality rolled oats. Don’t skimp on products that don’t have official “organic” and “gluten-free” certifications.

Next, use the coldest water imaginable. We all know what happens when we put hot water on oats, right? So, the more heat you expose your oats to, the higher chance you’ll be drinking oatmeal!

Interestingly, some people put their oats in the freezer about one hour before blending. This could reduce the chance your blender’s blades will overheat your oats while making your milk.

If all of these tips fail, you may want to experiment with store-bought enzymes like amylase. Some pro chefs use these supplements to break down their oats beforehand, thus improving the texture.
