oat milk

Ingredients:
Oats (1 cup)
Water (3 cups)

Optional:
Dates, vanilla

Method:
Blend oats and water together then strain through muslin cloth or something similar.
This milk will separate but once shaken up is fine.
Smoothness depends on how finely it has been strained but in a shake or smoothie the texture isn’t so important.
Use a ratio of 1:3 of oats:water and use within 3 days.
