Homemade Oat Milk with Mānuka Honey

Homemade Oat Milk with Mānuka Honey

Did you know you can easily make delicious, creamy oat milk? Our homemade version has so many benefits, including using mānuka honey to provide a little sweetness!

Oat milk is versatile and more neutral tasting than many seed milks. It is also incredibly sustainable; it uses less water, requires less land, and creates fewer emissions compared to dairy and even other plant-based milks. Producing oat milk at home helps reduce your carbon footprint even further by eliminating container materials and minimizing shipping weight. Not to mention, you’ll save money on your grocery bill too!

Mānuka honey keeps it natural, gently supporting your well-being while providing a pleasing hint of sweetness to your day. You’ll be comforted to know you can easily create oat milk with a few ingredients:


  • ½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3 cups very cold water
  • 2 teaspoons Flora Mānuka Honey
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ⅛ teaspoon Himalayan salt

Easily Customize the Recipe

Chilling: If your blender runs hot, use ice in place of water to prevent the oats from developing the flavor or texture of oatmeal.

Straining:fine weave cheesecloth will create a luxuriously creamy smooth milk. If using a loose weave or metal strainer, avoid forcing or pushing the pulp to avoid a gritty result.

Perfecting: Add more honey to taste, use Certified Gluten-Free oats, or leave out the vanilla. For a light and drinkable milk with less sediment, increase the water and use a clean tea towel as a filter.

Basic Instructions

Combine oats, water, mānuka honey, vanilla, and salt in a blender and blend for 30 seconds. Then strain through a fine cheesecloth into a wide-mouthed pitcher or bowl. Ta da!

Refrigerate remaining oat milk in a sealed container and use within 5 days.
