I was reading this article and it's prompted some googling of recipes. Thought I might try oat milk.


It seems a lot of US sites have the recipe using a milk maker machine, whereas Aust sites use a nut bag to strain the milk from the pulp.

Eg https://www.amazon.c...RQAGK895NSQYFER

Has anyone got one of these milk machines, or can you tell me how fiddly a nut bag is?

I used to have one for soy milk but it was different to the one in the above link. Mine had grinding plate type things rather than a blender style cutter.

Not sure what to say about it...it worked...I lost it in a house move. We don’t drink enough of any milk for it to be a hassle to make enough. The cleaning was pretty straightforward and the pulp was composted in our garden.

I did find using good quality water made a difference to the taste. We were on filtered rainwater which was soft and nice but a friend borrowed it using horrible town water (during a drought with lots of chemicals) and it didn’t taste as good.

Nut bags are super easy to use - I make almond milk every two days. Once the blending is finished it takes less than 4-5 minutes from beginning to end. Pulp in compost and wash bag out.

Milk is so much nicer than commercial, contains more nut product and no packaging waste.
