VitaMix How To Make Oat Milk & Breakfast Smoothie

Thanks! Share it with your friends!

Close My VitaMix ‘How To Make Oat Milk & Breakfast Smoothie’ is in response to emails I received from Jan and Larry. Oat milk? Yes, and it’s made just like almond or any nut milk and makes a great base for a strawberry banana smoothie. Thanks to Jan from Scotland I have a fiber rich, fat and lactose free milk to add to my repertoire, and also an inexpensive option to nuts.Make this and post your comments and questions! 1 cup oat milk 1 frozen bananas 10 frozen strawberries Disclaimer Do Your Own Work and Make Your Own Decisions “I am not a doctor.

Right you are. Add water to make it thinner.

Jesus Jimenez says:

it looks as though the outmilk was a bit thic…

blenditandMendit says:

To remove the excess starch and gluten from the final blend. Some people use the soak water.

blenditandMendit says:

Approx 30-45 seconds in the VitaMix.

Good ideas and short cuts – thanks!

How long do you blend the oats in the water?

ItsMeKelso says:

I made it with quick oats, i couldn’t wait ahha After i cooked the oats i strained them and also saved the strained water, I blended it, we have these fruit net bags the kind that keep fruit flies out so i used that to strain the oat meal, added stevia and vanilla and salt, its AMAZING i made hot coco using the oat milk and dark coco baking powder, cinnamon,and extra stevia it was the best! I’m so glad i found ur vids im excited to try more!!

Hi! I´m from Austria/Europe and I found this video yesterday, so I tried it today, and it´s fantastic!! I´ve been looking for a good oat milk recipe for quite a while but I didn´t like the texture of none of them, but the recipe you showed is just perfect! Thank you so much, I love your videos, you´re such a great person :) !

I just started watching your videos today. I have to admit you are my favorite person …great and easy ideas… good job !!! thank you for sharing 

blenditandMendit says:

Super idea, gravy from oat milk. Thanks for the tip. I haven’t made rice milk yet. Thanks for the review and taking the time to comment. I appreciate it.

LuluBre02 says:

Hey there!
Just wanted to let you know that I tried to make oat milk like you showed in this vid and it turned out GREAT! I actually didnt strain out the out fibers because I wanted a thicker texture. It is perfect for fruit smoothies! I ended up making a vegan gravy using it as the base and it was super good! Im sure it is lower fat then the nut milks too which is good. Have you made Rice milk? If not, perhaps you could in a future vid. I heard you can make it raw which would be cool Thx again

blenditandMendit says:

Yes, its slimy compared to almond milk.

kstewlover9 says:

Was the texture of the milk slimy? It looked a little slimy

blenditandMendit says:

I love your video and will try the recipes. But, I would like to know if you can tell me where you bought that straw? Please, please let me know.

blenditandMendit says:

That is great news and thank you for taking the time to comment and share with all of us how you use the oat milk as a soothing topical. There are many who can use this info.
Have a great, greening day,

Thank you for this recipe on how to make oat milk…I wanted to let you know that I found a new use for it. I have had acne my whole life and I’m 40! I decided to use this oat milk on my face to see if it would help calm down redness brought on by my skin condition. I was also courious to see if it would help moisturize my skin. Well…it worked!! I applied it and then let it sit on my skin for about 10 minutes and washed it off. My skin felt soft and smooth and redness was marketly reduced.

Steel cut oats are the whole grain groats cut into pieces. The kind we ate as kids have been been ground, steamed and rolled / flattened. I don’t have data on the nutrition. I haven’t tried making oat milk with them, either.

tejohnsonjones says:

Hi there Jane,

It’s been a while since my last question and I’ve tried a few of your recipes with some success.

My question, however, is about the “steel cut” oats that you used. In looking at the picture in the video, they looked a little different from the “steel cut” oats that I’m used to seeing in the grocery store. The so-called steel cut oats from labels like Quaker or even Raw oats that I’ve purchased look like the oatmeal that we grew up on. Do you know is it’s less nutritious?

blenditandMendit says:

You’re welcome! I agree that oat milk is not everyone’s cup of tea.

hwiseman1 says:

I think it looks kinda viscous…I will heave with that. Too bad, I’m looking for inexpensive alternatives. Alpiste is ridiculous to find. Hemp is bad enough but I’ll have to stick with that. But thanks for the video!!!

blenditandMendit says:

I don’t see why not….

khodorek says:

Can you reuse the water, instead of straining it out? Didn;t know if you could use the water in the smoothie or not.

blenditandMendit says:

Hi Patsy,
Hemp milk is delicious and it’s on the list, I just haven’t got to it yet.
It’s easy to make so the answer is yes, I’ll make a vid for you :)
