Recipe: Raw Vegan Oat Milk

Stephanie Jeffs Cactus Kitchen Explore Raw Cookery School London Raw Food Chef Best Recipes

Delicious! And oh so simple, right? And that is just the way I like it.

There are several techniques that you can choose to make raw milks – and I am going to share here just two of them as they are the most simple. Check out my recipe for Raw Almond Milk for the most professional and simple approach to making raw nut milk with sprouting almonds.


  • 1 litre fresh filtered or bottled mineral water
  • 2 cups oats (gluten free if that’s your choice)


Raw version: for best results soak the oats overnight first. Blend the oats and water together in a Personal Blender and your milk is ready to go! A tiny pinch of quality sea salt or himalayan salt will lift the flavour and give it a little sweetness. A few small drops of coconut oil or Udo’s Choice Oil ensure that this milk is delightfully creamy.

For a less thick consistency strain the milk through a muslin cloth or nut milk bag. Alternatively you can use a soyabella machine – these machines are great for whipping up some milky products!

  • Add the water to your Tribest Soyabella Milk Maker
  • Transfer all other ingredients to the milk screen, lock into place and attached the head unit to the stainless steel chamber
  • Press the mill button 6 times, or until the milk has reached your desired consistency
  • Enjoy straight away or store in air-tight containers in the fridge.

    Really hoping you can help with my oat milk.. I’m using steel cut oats and have a Soyabella Milk Maker. I can’t seem to get a milk that is nice and creamy – it’s watery and tasteless. Should I be pressing the mill button more times to get more thickness or am I not running it through enough? I asked Tribest for help and they just sent me your link.. a compliment I guess! Many thanks in anticipation of a reply – the only being drinking what I’m making at the moment is our dog! x

    Hi there! Thanks for reaching out. Have you tried soaking the oats first before putting through the machine? Are you successfully making other milks in the soya bella? Happy to have a quick phone call with you if you are struggling – I know when I am in the kitchen I just want a quick fix! PS lucky dawgy hehe (07914399109)

    Hi There! I am in the States and finally took my Soyabella out of its box…I am interested in making oat milk, though having a hard time finding the details I am searching for….Are rolled oats ok for making milk? If so, how long to soak before adding ingredients to the machine? I do not use added oils of any kind (bad for you according to top U.S. cardiologists), nor do I use salt of any kind (advised against it by my own cardiologist). Thank You!

    Hi Cynthia!

    Thanks for your message! Rolled oats are totally fine and you can soak them from 2 hours to overnight. There’s not too much of a science around soaking oats so don’t panic too much as long as they are nice and soggy you will get you a more beautifully creamy milk! Yes, you are right! Adding oil isn’t the healthiest (without oil much better!) I do like the Gerson therapy approach that flax oil in small amounts is great for overall health. The tiny amount of quality salt really brings out the sweetness in the milk (especially with nut milks) and this assumes that one is following a no or low salt diet. Otherwise… it’s a no no! Good luck with the oat milk making! Steph 🙂
