Confused about plant-milks? Which one is best, or what’s the healthiest choice? Looking for a really simple one to make yourself, with very little effort? Well, how about Oat Hemp Milk!? Just blend and store/pour! No straining required, especially if you’re planning to use it for cooking or on your morning oats (like us!). Super simple and ready in seconds!
What is "milk" anyway? Isn't it just something to have with your healthy Tracy's Real Foods COOKIES, especially our delicious guilt-free Carrot Cake Spice Cookies (pictured above), splash on your cereal in the morning, put in a smoothie, cook with? Well to me - that means it should be simple, nutritious, made from plants and leave out the middle-cow!
HEMP OAT MILK
Makes 3 cups (24 ounces)
3 cups water
1/4 cup rolled oats or oat flour
2 tablespoons - 1/4 cup hemp seeds (more hemp = richer more calorie-dense milk)
1 tablespoon pitted dates (optional)
dash salt (optional)
dash pumpkin pie spice (optional)
1.5 You can optionally strain it through a nut milk bag to remove pulp but I don't.
NOTE - if you want less "graininess" to your milk, use oat flour (commercially ground) instead of rolled oats.
