Homemade Sweetened Condensed Oat Milk

  2 rater(s)

Fancy a tea or coffee that’s sweetened with homemade condensed oat milk? You are in luck because this recipe requires three ingredients and 15 minutes of your time. The condensed oat milk is sweet, thick, rich, and perfect for any tea, coffee, milkshake, or creamy beverage. You can also use it in myriad dairy-free or vegan baking applications. Drizzle it over scones, cakes, biscotti, and more!

There are not too many (if any) non-dairy condensed milk options available for purchase. Commercially available condensed oat milks are very rare, but you can sometimes have luck with condensed coconut milk. Because they are not easy to find, we wanted to provide you with an easy homemade option. All you need is the ingredients, a blender, a saucepan, and some of your precious, valuable time.

After you blend the ingredients, strain the blended mixture through a nut milk bag, cheesecloth, or fine mesh sieve. Pour that strained liquid into a saucepan and heat slowly while whisking frequently. This step is very important because you want the mixture to thicken evenly. The frequent whisking and heat will thicken the liquid, but be mindful that this can take three to five minutes. Just be patient and remove the saucepan from the stove once it reaches your desired consistency.

Homemade Sweetened Condensed Oat Milk
  • Prep Time:10m
  • Cook Time:5m
  • Total Time:15m


  • 1/2 c rolled oats
  • 2 c cold water
  • 1/2 c organic cane sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt


  1. Place the oats in a strainer and rinse them under cold water for about 10 seconds.
  2. Add the oats and water to a blender and blend until smooth (about 30 seconds or so). Pour the blended mixture through a nut milk bag or cheesecloth and strain into a bowl. Some people like to strain the mixture twice, but that is up to you.
  3. Pour the strained oat milk into a saucepan over medium heat and whisk in the sugar. Continue whisking frequently for about five minutes, and then reduce the heat so it does not reach a full boil.
  4. The mixture should be slightly thickened and close to simmering. Cook over low heat for another two to three minutes and then remove from heat.
  5. At this time, pour in the vanilla extract and sea salt before setting aside to cool.
  6. Pour the condensed oat milk into a jar, screw on the lid, and store in the fridge until ready to use. It will keep fresh in an airtight jar in the fridge for up to six days.
