You might be surprised that so many ingredients go into this recipe, well let me tell you that that’s the reason why the milk comes creamy, smooth, and silky texture. Certainly, if you are looking for delicious and quality-tasting Oat Milk, this is your winning combo. It just depends on your preferences.
To achieve that creaminess and richness of oat milk, we need a bit of fat in our milk. That is the reason why we are using Peanut Butter. I prefer to use regular smooth peanut butter, but sometimes I swap PB for tahini and it’s a perfect combination as well!
Also, I prefer lightly sweetened milk and the spoon of honey or maple syrup makes the deliciously rich, yet sweet taste of the milk. You can use maple syrup or any other liquid sweetener as well. Add as much as you want if you prefer really sweet milk (like coconut) add 2-3 tbsp of honey.

TIPS TO MAKE CREAMY OAT MILK
This recipe is simple but there are few IMPORTANT tips for achieving creamy and delicious Oat Milk
Don’t overmix. To achieve that creamy, rich texture you can’t blend the milk for longer than 30 seconds. You want the oats to be crushed and combined with the rest but not blend them totally! That ensures that your milk won’t be slimy.
Do not soak the ingredients overnight. The best result can be achieved with old fashion large flake oats. Do not leave your oats to soak to get out most of the taste. It will just make your milk slimy.
