There are so many possibilities in a simple bag of rolled oats. You can mix up a quick, hot breakfast, stir them into pancake and waffle batters, or grind them down to a powder to make flour. You can also make oat milk at home, that is creamy, plant-based and tastes great. On this episode of Prep School, Megan Mitchell shows you the ropes with this lightly-sweetened sip. We used maple syrup, but you can swap in any sweetener of choice, like date syrup or agave syrup.

Answers for all your burning oat milk questions.
Soaking your oats in cold water and rinsing before blending can help reduce any unwanted slimyness. After a quick soak, rinse and drain your oats until the water runs clear. When blending your oat milk, don’t let the blender run for too long.
Cold water will prevent your oats from getting gummy and your oat milk from being slimy.
Your oat milk should last about 7 days in the fridge.
Use oat milk as a milk alternative in all your favorite recipes. You can add your homemade oat milk to cereal, lattes, or smoothies. Or, use it to make one of these decadent ice cream recipes.
