I have been thinking this for a while now.
Nothing beats the Oatly Barista costing £2 a litre. Moma and Minor figures are not significantly different in terms of cost. A litre a day costs £60 for us. It is time to save a bit in this department. I have gone completely black, until I find a cost-effective alternative.
We found the another store brand surprisingly very good, rich, creamy and thicker for drinking and steaming. It is still delicious to drink but has gone too watery and colourful for steaming for lattes or flat whites. The below is the picture of that milk that’s no longer good for flat whites and lattes.
We do make oat milk at home for cereals, baking and drinking. Recently, I made some changes by adding calcium carbonate (100 mg/l), 2 tbsp of walnut oil for creamy texture and a pinch of salt. The ratio of oats to water is 10% of oats to a litre of water. I won’t worry about adding Vitamins as we get enough in our food and supplements.
I steamed this. It hardly curds but it is a bit slimy and watery. I reckon one needs a bit of acidity regulator. The commercial Oats milk will add
Dipotassium Phosphate to prevent curding. This is expensive and not generally available. Is there an alternative available?
Has anyone tried making a barista quality oat milk.
