Ingredients

 1 cup organic rolled oats
 4 cups water
 4 Medjool dates (pitted)
 2 tbsp tahini (or almond butter)
 2 tsp vanilla extract (preferably alcohol-free)
 2 tsp ground cinnamon
 ¼ tsp ground ginger

 2 pinches salt (optional)
 sesame seeds (for garnish)
 ground cinnamon (for garnish)

Directions

1

Add all of the ingredients, except the sesame seeds and cinnamon garnish, to a high-speed blender.

Start by blending on low then increase speed to high. Blend until smooth or for 1–2 minutes.

3

Taste for additional flavors of choice like cinnamon, salt, or sweetness (see Chef’s Notes below).

4

Strain the milk by adding it to a nut-milk bag or a fine sieve. (Use the remaining oat pulp, if there is any, in your morning oatmeal!)

5

Pour milk into a 32-ounce mason jar or two 16-ounce jars. Use within 5 days.
