RECIPE : healthy vegan breakfast bowl with homemade oat milk

comments 20


you request – i make a video.
your wish is my command.
and the number one request i’ve been getting is for healthy vegan breakfast ideas.
this is my summer favourite : coconutty berry breakfast bowl with homemade oat milk. i have this every morning at the moment.
making your own oat milk is super easy and crazy cheap, so a good tip for everyone on a budget. also, it’s so healthy with tons of nutrients and good energy. i usually make a lot at once and keep in the fridge, and it’ll last me a few days. the same goes for the coconutty mix, just store it in a glass jar in the fridge for coming breakfasts.

coconutty vegan breakfast bowl with homemade oat milk
oat milk :
200 ml / 0.8 cups oats
about 6 dates, pitted
1600 ml / 7 cups water
coconutty mix :
200 ml / 0.8 cups mixed nuts, roughly chopped (here i used cashews, almonds and hazelnuts, but whatever you prefer)
50 ml / ¼ cup shredded coconut
1 tsp cinnamon
breakfast bowl :
1/2 apple, diced
1 kiwi, sliced
100 ml frozen berries (here i used black and red currant, just choose your favourite)
oat milk, however much you want
coconutty mix, however much you want

– mix the oats by themselves first, until a fine powder. then add the dates and mix again
– gradually add the water, with just a little at first until all is added to your blender. you can pour through a sieve, cotton kitchen towel, or cheesecloth if you want, but i don’t bother. it’s just easier this way, plus i get all the nutrients from the whole oats. pour into clean glass bottles and keep in the fridge

– toast the nuts, shredded coconut and cinnamon in a dry pan on medium heat for a few minutes until they’re lightly browned and you can smell gorgeous nuttiness in your whole kitchen
– store in the fridge in an airtight container, like a glass jar

– mix apple and kiwi in the middle of a large bowl. add the frozen berries
– pour as much milk as you want on top, sprinkle on some cocnutty mix and enjoy all that summery delightfulness ^^

  6. hi there,
    great recipe, i really like the taste of the milk and was super excited to see that it didn’t turn out slimy (i’ve tried making oatmilk before and it turned out yucky). although once it stood in the fridge overnight it DID get slimy! food and slime just doesn’t work for me. is that normal that once it stands for a while it thickens up and gets this slimy texture?

    • jennymustard

      hahah yeah oats do turn out a bit slimy when wet :)
      i don’t mind it that much though, but i’ve heard that if you toast the oats in the oven for a few minutes before blending they don’t turn out as slimy. i usually just add more water to the milk after a couple of days in the fridge and that usually is enough to make it less slimy again.
      good luck !!

  9. It´s time I give it a try! (^o^)/ What water do you use for the oat milk? Just normal tap water should be ok, I guess…

  12. Have you ever tried peeling your kiwis? It works really well and you get way more fruit out of each kiwi. I find it easiest to peel it first and then cut of the stems.
    Let me know if you try it.
