Step 2: Get a blending bottle. Put your wholegrain oats, add 2 cups of water, 2 pitted dates to serve as sweetener, ½ teaspoon of vanilla essence for flavor, and blend all of it. You can double up the measurement to get more Oatmilk.
Step 3: Grab a mesh strainer and strain the pulp from the milk. If you have a cheesecloth, use the cloth to ensure the oats are strained properly. If not, strain using the fine mesh strainer couple of times. (2-3 is fine).
