Homemade Brazil Nut Oat Milk

This Brazil Nut Oat Milk is smooth, creamy and delicately flavoured. It’s easy to make in 2 minutes or less and requires only 4 basic ingredients. This homemade milk is vegan, gluten-free and much more affordable.

If you love trying different dairy-free milks, but are not so keen on the (often) hefty price tags, it is time to make your own! I go through phases of making my own milk but always found it too much work having to straight the milk after. The new Plant M!lk Maker from Salter is now my best friend as it does all the work for you and blends it all up in 1 minute. I have so many ideas for different flavoured milks already, the possibilities are endless. You can save 20% off the milk maker with my code NOURISHINGAMY20.

If you already love the sound of this homemade plant milk, then skip ahead to the recipe card below. Or, first let’s discuss the recipe in more detail.

What ingredients do I need?

We only need 4 basic ingredients (plus water!):

  • Brazil nuts: these add such a lovely nutty and distinctive Brazil nut flavour to the milk that I don’t think I have ever tried before. You can switch this up and use any other nuts, too, like cashew or almonds.
  • Oats: to make this milk cheaper, creamier and naturally sweet, I add oats to the nuts. Make sure these are gluten-free, where needed.
  • Date: this adds sweetness to the mix and also helps to preserve the milk. You can swap this for 1-2 tbsp maple syrup, if you prefer.
  • Salt: this enhances the flavour but is also really important for helping to make the milk last a little longer. Without this, the milk will probably only keep for 1 day.
  • Vanilla: this is optional, for flavour.
  • Filtered water: essential to make any flavoured or nut-based milks.

How do I make this?

This is the Plant Milk Maker that I use to make this as simple as possible, so if you use the machine, this is what to do:

  • Soak the Brazil nuts: this makes the milk smoother.
  • Add the drained Brazil nuts, oats, date, salt and vanilla: to the filter basket and attach to the blade part of the machine.
  • Fill the machine with water: making sure not to overfill it.
  • Secure the lid on top of the jug and secure in place: and press the milk function.
  • The machine will take 1 minute to make the milk: working in 3 x 15-second cycles with a short break in between each.
  • Carefully remove the lid and unscrew the filter basket: keep the nut milk pulp in the basket for my Chocolate Brazil Nut Truffles.
  • Pour the milk into a clean jar or container: and keep well sealed.
  • Enjoy straight away or chill in the fridge: and keep for 2-3 days.

Without the plant milk maker :

  • Soak the Brazil nuts: as above.
  • Add all of the ingredients to a high-powered blender: and blend till totally smooth.
  • Use a muslin or cheesecloth to strain the milk: squeezing out the liquid.
  • Store as above: and keep the pulp for other recipes.

Is this nut-free and gluten-free?

This is not nut-free as it a Brazil Nut milk, but you can use all oats, instead or swap the Brazil nuts for coconut or hemp seeds, although the flavour will be totally different. To ensure this is gluten-free, use gluten-free oats.

How long will this last?

This milk will keep in a clean, sealed jar in the fridge for 2-3 days.

Why does my milk separate?

As this does not contain any thickeners, gums or adding artificial ingredients, the milk will separate as it sits. Simply stir it back up and enjoy.

What can I use the pulp for?

The pulp is full of nutrients and flavour and is great for my Chocolate Brazil Nut Truffles. Other uses include:

  • Adding into your porridge: simply stir it int and enjoy.
  • Adding to your smoothies or smoothie bowls: pour into the blender with all the other ingredients.
  • Crackers: I am yet to make a pulp cracker recipe, but I know it will work wonders.

Yield: 2 pints (approx. 1.3l)
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 2 minutes
Additional Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 34 minutes

This Brazil Nut Oat Milk is smooth, creamy and delicately flavoured. It’s easy to make in 2 minutes or less and requires only 4 basic ingredients. This homemade milk is vegan, gluten-free and much more affordable.


  • 80g Brazil nuts
  • 40g oats
  • 1 dated, pitted
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla, optional
  • 1300ml filtered water


  1. Soak the Brazil nuts: add them to a bowl and cover with boiling water. If your date is not really soft, add the date to the bowl as well. Leave for 30-60 minutes to soften before draining.
  2. Set up the machine: add the water to the plastic jug with the collector container slotting into the rivet at the bottom. Add the Brazils, oats, date, salt and vanilla to the filter basket. Fit the filter basket onto the lid by carefully placing it over the plate and rotating in a clockwise direction until secure. Push the lid onto the top of the jug, making sure it is slotted in place.
  3. Make the milk: turn the machine on and press on/off to begin. The machine will take 1 minute to make milk, working in three cycles of 15 seconds with a break in between.
  4. To serve: remove the filter basket form the lid, using the collector container. Twist off the collector container to separate the basket from the lid. Reserve the pulp until needed.
  5. To store: use the milk straight away or pour the milk into a container and chill until needed. Keep in an airtight container for 2-3 days, shaking/stirring before using as it may separate.


If using a blender, soak the nuts as above and then add all of the ingredients to a high speed blender and blend till smooth. Strain through a nut-milk or cheesecloth.
