Creamy Barista Milk (10 minutes)

This barista milk post just isn’t going as smoothly as I imagined. I was looking for the best barista Milk , just like the one from Oatly should be. Preferably without added oil or other additives. What can I say, I’ve tried everything from my own ideas, to those of the Recipes of the most famous bloggers ever. One of them even claims to have cracked the Oatly code. The reviews are also quite good on their site and then I immediately copied this. But sorry, that was nothing. For comparison, I bought an original pack of Oatly. My conclusion? You can find it further down in the text.

Oatly Barista, really that hard to crack?

Admittedly, I was disappointed at first after my numerous experiments. Everything I tried was creamy, but didn’t really foam like the original Barista Milk from Oatly. If you take a closer look at the list of ingredients, you will find a few additives that promote foaming. Once I got over my low, I realized that I could live quite well without the excessive foam. For this I do without oil, acidity regulators, calcium carbonates and calcium phosphates. Or do you have that in the house? Sure, I always buy that first thing when I go to the supermarket. Joking aside, no I have not of course and therefore I decided to make a fine and especially creamy barista Milk to make which is particularly suitable for coffee specialties.

What are the advantages of homemade vegetable milk:

  • Free from oil
  • Free from Additives
  • Full of healthy Dietary fiber
  • Rich in Minerals
  • Not high heated, therefore even richer variety of micronutrients

This is me so what latte (vegan of course)

Who still have desire to this creamy and delicious Vegetable milk , may now stay tuned. There are still a few small tips and tricks, with which it also succeeds safely. First, a few words about the ingredients. water, oatmeal, Cashews and a pinch of salt. I use the cashews as a kind of substitute for the oil. It makes the Milk nice and creamy.

Then we already come to the tips & tricks:

  • Cashews like to soak (if your blender is not so powerful)
  • Do not soak oatmeal in any case, this promotes the formation of mucilage and do you feel like a slimy milk? No, thanks!
  • Don’t blend too long, because that also moves our oatmeal to get really nice and slimy. Maximum 30 seconds at the highest level and stop. This time, unfortunately, there is no encore.
  • Best stored in a sterilized, resealable milk jar. Simply rinse with boiling hot water beforehand or sterilize in a steamer. This way you prevent the formation of unwanted bacteria and germs.

Our creamy barista milk goes wonderfully in a vegan golden milk , hot chocolate , creamy Immune Booster Latte or in all your favorite coffee specialties.

The creamy barista milk is:

  • creamy
  • versatile
  • Few ingredients
  • Simply made
  • Without oil or Additives

    Definitely not a barista style oat milk. This is more like a standard oat milk from a carton but not barista style. It’s much thinner with a very watery taste to it and splits when I use it in my coffee. It’s not a bad oat milk by any means but not what I think of when using barista style. I knew it was never going to be like oatly or alpro barista styles but this feels a long way off. I tried a 2nd batch with more oats and more cashews with extra vanilla and this one’s a bit better, I haven’t tried it with the addition of dates and that may make this recipe better but unfortunately the search for a decent barista style oat milk to make at home continues.

    1. sorry to hear that, we have hundreds of comments and feedbacks on the german language page that think our barista variant is very good, too bad it’s not the same for you.
