5 Minute Honey Oat Milk Recipe

3 ingredients

5 minutes

20% of cost of store-bought

Regular, gluten free, sugar free or flavored options

Way tastier

No additives

No experience necessary



6-8 cups 1.5 - 2 liters



💧Water: cold filtered water. 6 cups (1.42 liters) –  8 cups if you prefer a thinner consistency

🌾 Oats: 1.5 cups (6.4 oz or 181g). Old fashioned rolled oats, organic or opt for gluten-free oats

🧂Salt: Just a pinch to enhance the natural flavors of the oat milk.


Optional ingredients:

🍯 Raw Honey: 1 tablespoon (21g) or to taste. Opt for raw honey to not only add flavor, but also incorporate the benefits of raw honey. You can also make this with no sweetener or your favorite sweetener.

🍦Vanilla Extract. 1 tsp if you prefer vanilla flavored

😋 Other flavors: go crazy it’s a blank slate



  1. In a blender, combine the water, oats, honey if using, flavoring if using, and a pinch of salt.
  2. Blend for 2 minutes on high speed
  3. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer, a cloth or a nut milk bag. To achieve the smoothest texture, strain twice.
  4. Optional steps:
    1. With the ground oats remaining from the straining process, return them to the blender and add 2 more cups of water. Blend again for a second round of extraction.
    2. The leftover oats from straining can be cooked with water and a pinch of salt to make a creamy oatmeal, ensuring zero waste in your kitchen.


Cost Comparison:

(based on my local research)

This recipe Honey Oat Milk: ~$1.00 for 64 oz (1.89 liters), proving to be 80% cheaper than the least expensive store-bought options.

I compared to store prices from $3.95 for 59 oz (1.74 liters) to $3.99 for 32 oz (0.95 liters), making your own is both economical and satisfying.


No additives!

These are some common store-bought oat milk additives that although nothing terrible, we still prefer none:

- Calcium Carbonate: A mineral often used to fortify foods with calcium.

- Dipotassium Phosphate: A stabilizer that helps prevent separation.

- Guar Gum: A thickener derived from guar beans to improve texture.

- Gellan Gum: A gelling agent for that perfect consistency.

- Sunflower Oil: Adds richness and mouthfeel to the milk.


Just 5 minutes for an arguably healthier, fresher, tastier, more versatile, and cheaper oat milk.


We hope you’ll enjoy the simplicity, sweetness, and satisfaction that comes from a glass of your own, beautifully homemade oat milk.


And although it’s a small amount of honey, every drop supports bees and beekeepers - -thank you!
