Vegetable milk at home: coconut, almond, oatmeal

Vegetable milk is gaining more and more popularity in comparison with the product of animal origin. This drink is not only for vegans and those who do not tolerate lactose, but for everyone who wants to lead a healthy lifestyle. And although vegetable milk is not close to cow's milk, it is also able to diversify the diet, give pleasure to the delicate milk-vegetable taste and enrich the body with useful vitamins and minerals. 

Unlike regular milk, which you can get from a cow or buy in a store, you can make vegetable milk yourself. The editors of MustHub offer you three homemade recipes for vegetable milk: oatmeal, coconut and almond. 

Oatmeal milk: recipe

Oatmeal milk
Oatmeal milk: cooking recipe

Ingredients:

  • Oatmeal of the Hercules type — 150 g
  • Water — 1 l

Cooking method

  1. Fill the flakes with cold boiled water, mix and leave at room temperature for an hour, or better for 8-12 hours or overnight, so that the oatmeal swells. 
  2. The swollen flakes with water are ground for 2-3 minutes in a blender (you can use both an immersion and a stationary one) to a homogeneous, thick liquid. The finished milk will turn white with a creamy tint.
  3. If desired, you can add a pinch of salt, sugar or a teaspoon of refined vegetable oil. You can also grind the pulp of dates or other dried fruits with milk.
  4. Strain the milk from the remnants of un-ground oatmeal through a cheesecloth or sieve. Cake can also be used in food, mixed with fruit. Or make pancakes out of it.
  5. You can store oat milk in the refrigerator for 7 days.

Coconut milk
Coconut milk: how to make it at home

Ingredients:

  • Coconut — 1 pc.
  • Water — 400 ml.

Cooking method

  1. Choose the right coconut. To determine whether it is good, rub it near your ear: the liquid should gurgle inside.  The fruit should be whole, with three eyes, without mold.
  2. Among the three eyes, find the softest one and pierce it with a knife or screwdriver. Through the hole, drain the coconut juice and drink it or use it for other purposes, since it will not be needed to make milk.
  3. Crack the nut. This will require a hammer. Hit the middle of the fruit, constantly scrolling it until it cracks.
  4. Peel the dark shell from the pulp.  Rub the pulp on a grater or grind it in a combine.
  5. Transfer the grated coconut to a bowl and pour boiling water, so that it covers the pulp quite a bit. Leave it to infuse for half an hour. During this time, the pulp will absorb water and swell.  
  6. The finished mass is thrown back on a thick towel or cheesecloth and squeeze the milk out of the chips.  The shavings themselves can also be used for various purposes later by drying them in the oven.
  7. Let the milk settle. After some time, the coconut oil will float up, and it can be removed. The milk is ready!
  8. You can store coconut milk in the refrigerator for 24 hours. 

Homemade Almond milk 

Almond milk
Almond milk: recipe for cooking

Ingredients:

  • Raw almonds-1 cup
  • Water — 3 cups.

Cooking method

  1. Before cooking, pre-soak raw unsalted almonds in water for 6 hours, it is better to leave them overnight.
  2. Drain the water from the almonds. In a blender, whisk the almonds well until almost smooth. You can add a couple of dates or other dried fruits to make the drink more sweet and healthy. Fill the mixture with 3 cups of water.
  3. Strain the milk with a gauze or sieve. 
  4. Homemade almond milk can be stored for 3-4 days in the refrigerator.
