To make oat milk, all you need is a blender, water, oats, a dish towel, and a fine-mesh sieve! I’m going to show you how to make 3 flavors of oat milk including my chocolate oat milk recipe using oats and 5 more natural ingredients!Chocolate Oat Milk Recipe

Chocolate Oat Milk Recipe

My chocolate oat milk contains no added sugar; only natural sugars from dates! If you want less sweetness, use fewer dates and if you like sweet chocolate milk, feel free to use more dates! It’s that easy!

Obviously you can go out and buy chocolate oat milk at the grocery store, but it’s actually faster to make oat milk at home compared to going to a store!

I’m going to teach you how to make oat milk at home in 10 minutes! As well as how to make 3 flavored oat milk including chocolate oat milk, vanilla oat milk, and cinnamon oat milk.

  1. To a blender, add all desired ingredients and blend on high for 30 seconds until smooth and creamy
  2. Strain the milk using a nut milk bag or thin dish towel draped over a fine-mesh sieve.
  3. Transfer strained oat milk into a jug or glass jar and refrigerate for up to 4 days.


  • Don’t blend for more than 30 seconds, because if you blend the oats too much, it will become gelatinous and gummy.
  • You can make any flavored oat milk you want! Just use the unsweetened oat milk as a base and add any flavor you’d like to it.
  • You can refrigerate your fresh chocolate oat milk for 3 to 5 days.
  • Save the leftover pulp for baked goods, homemade granola bars and more!
  • Because homemade oat milk is less stable (less preservatives) than store-bought oat milk, I don’t prefer to cook or bake with homemade oat milk. In general, homemade oat milk is perfect for drinking alone, smoothies, coffee or cereal! Adding chocolate oat milk to your coffee creates like a coffee mocha and it’s super delicious!


Pure oats are naturally gluten-free, but always check the labels of your ingredients to make sure it doesn’t say it contains gluten or made in the same factory as other gluten products, such as rye or barley. Oat milk is nut-free, dairy-free and does not contain the most common allergens.


Take organic oats and add to a blender with water and pinch of salt. If you want organic chocolate oat milk, add organic cocoa, organic vanilla extract, and 4 organic pitted dates to the blender. Blend on high until smooth and creamy. Strain the liquid into a thin dish towel over a fine-mesh sieve into a jug. That’s how you make organic oat milk.

How Long Does Homemade Oat Milk Last

Because there are no preservatives in homemade oat milk, it can last up to 3 to 5 days in the fridge. Blending and straining your oat milk only takes 10 mins, so make frequent small batches to enjoy fresh homemade oat milk!

Oat milk seems to be the world’s newest favorite milk. Oats grow very easily, making oat milk the most sustainable choice. Oat milk is one of the first swaps most people make when switching to a vegan or dairy-free lifestyle. Whether you’ve been vegan for years, or you’re just looking to make a few healthy plant-based changes to your diet, homemade oat milk is a staple!

  • I look forward to trying the oat milk recipe(s), but I am also curious about the cookies next to the oat milk in the photo I can’t tell if they might be spice (we just bought some Swedish ginger cookies yesterday) or chocolate. What kind of cookies are they, and have you put the recipe up on this blog? They look pretty good.

  • Rebecca says:

    Heyy thank you for the recipe. Can this be frozen to make chocolate / made into chocolate???

    • EdgyVeg says:

      Hey Rebecca, this won’t really turn into chocolate because there are no cocoa nib. But if you wanted to make it into an icecream, you can add frozen bananas while blending. I hope this helps!

  • Alicia says:

    Definitely need a lot more dates than recommended for my family, but my boys (12 &13) love this chocolate oat milk and what a huge cost savings!! Thank you!

  • Jessica F. says:

    The recipe is really nice but I’d like to add cashew nuts as a fat…

    • You can absolutely add some cashews, it may make the milk thicker so add water as needed

  • Alison Baillie says:

    Can’t wait to try this – thank you xxx

  • I’ve never made oat milk at home but really loved the cinnamon oat milk! I use it for coffees in the morning and it adds a holiday taste for us in the morning. Definitely recommending it to friends
