This is a creamy and slightly sweet home-made oat milk – a doddle to make so you never run out! Some people don’t tolerate cow’s milk and there has been a massive upsurge of interest in plant-based milks over the past few years.
However, commercial oat milks are usually very low in calcium or fortified with types of calcium that are hard to absorb easily. Many oat milks also have emulsifiers and acidity regulators added to them which are often not tolerated by sensitive tummies. Some people also need gluten-free oat milk or prefer organic which can get expensive.
I have therefore created a super easy oat milk you can make at home that contains a very special type of calcium made from marine algae, which is vegan and also packed with minerals that help to build healthy bones. This makes 1 litre of oat milk with 1,200mg calcium. 100ml of cow’s milk normally provides 120ml calcium.
This milk is suitable from 12 months old and should never be used as a replacement for infant milk formula.
