OAT MILK INSPIRATION

You may know that we launched very own Oat Mi*k…and that we absolutely love it. It’s made from only 4 ingredients – all organic and is so creamy. Whilst we use it in the cafe on a day to day basis in our coffees and teas, here are some recipes that you can make at home! Firstly our go-to breakfast EVERY morning, Chia seed pudding (Dave style), an indulgent Chocolate and Orange Mousse, Creamy Mushroom Pie and a classic staple…creamy red pepper pasta!

Chia seed pudding is a super wholesome breakfast and really simple to make. Dave has been eating it for breakfast everyday for the last 4 years. It is packed with fibre, omega 3 essential fatty acids and also protein as well as lots of antioxidants. There is a process to making it, we always soak our chia seeds along with some ground flax seed, some cacao nibs, other seeds we might have and soak them in oat milk. The ratio is approximately 1 part chia seeds to 5 part plant milk, mix with a fork and leave to sit while you prep your fruit to top. We usually leave the chia pudding to sit for about 10 minutes and often have to add a little more milk till it reaches a pudding like texture that the fruit sits on top of it without sinking.

We’re also going to show you how to make a delicious whole-food sauce based around roasted red peppers, cashew nuts, non dairy milk and lemon juice. You will need a blender to make this sauce, if you don’t have one you could easily borrow one from a neighbour. Try to use wholemeal pasta as its higher in fibre and better for your digestion and microbiome, our favourite is wholemeal spaghetti. When draining the pasta, keep a little of the pasta water to thin out the sauce if needed. You want to ensure that the sauce is not too thick nor to thin so it that perfect texture

Last but not least, we are going to show you the easiest chocolate mousse…in the world! It’s the perfect thing to whip up if you have guests coming round, and keep in the fridge chilling until they’re ready to serve.

Dave and Steve eat this for breakfast pretty much every morning.

Just ensure that you use chocolate that has more than 50% cacao solids and remember the ratio .75, so 1 part chocolate and .75 part infused milk.
