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.

This is so magnificent and so easy to adapt to whatever flavour you like. When we first start to make this we couldn’t believe how smooth and elegant a mousse this makes. 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.

Serves 6

Ingredients
 

  • 150 ml oat milk
  • 1 orange
  • 200 g dark chocolate

Instructions
 

  • Ensure you have 2 metal bowls.Pour the milk into a saucepan on high heat and add the zest of the orange and the juice of the orange, bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer for 2-3 mins.
  • If you dont like orange just leave out the orange zest and juice and replace with your favourite tea bag such as mint or berry tea bag.
  • Chop the chocolate into small pieces.Sieve into a measuring jug and ensure that you have exactly 150ml of infused milk.Add the boiling hot infused milk on top of the chocolate and whisk until its all dissolved and you have a chocolate milk.
  • Place the ice into the second metal bowl and place the bowl with the chocolate on top of the ice bath and whisk for 3-5 mins until it starts to thicken and become like a wonderful chocolate mousse.Serve with some vegan cream and some sliced chocolate on top!

  1. Thank you for the good ideas.
    I have a question about the source of the water you use in your oat milk. Is it from the public tap water ?
    I avoid public tap water i.e.artificially fluoridated tap water. The additives are industrial grade, contaminated with toxic heavy metals and are unlicensed. Source-
    Page 192 Fluoridation Forum Report. If spring water like other brands I will then use your product . It is important to trace origin of the additives for my own health.
    Many thanks Mary Hilary
