How to Make Oatmeal Water

If you want to reduce your intake of dairy beverages, then oatmeal water is an excellent option since it’s easy and quick to prepare. Besides, it has multiple benefits, such as providing you with vitamin B and helping you to lower your cholesterol.

5-Minute Crafts offers you a simple recipe so that you can make this beverage at home in only 5 steps.

Ingredients

For 33.8 oz (1 L) of oatmeal water, you’ll need:

  • 1 cup of oats (old-fashioned or whole grain)

  • 33.8 oz (1 L) of water

Step 1

  • Put the oats in the blender and pour in enough water to fully cover them.

Step 2

  • Blend until you get a uniform liquid. You can check this by removing the lid and making sure there aren’t any oats floating on the surface.

  • You’ll notice in this step that the mixture has a thick and viscous consistency. This is completely normal. Pour in more water in the final step if you wish for it to be smoother.

Step 3

  • Put the rest of the water in a pot and pour in the mixture.

  • Boil for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring it constantly to avoid anything from sticking to the bottom.

  • You may add some sugar or cinnamon if you wish.

Step 4

  • Remove the pot from the heat and let it cool for a couple of minutes.

  • Use a fine-mesh strainer to strain the water into any pitcher or container that you can cover later.

  • If you wish for the water to contain less sediment, then place a piece of fabric on the strainer.

Step 5

  • Refrigerate the oatmeal water in a pitcher or container with a lid and enjoy it once it’s cold.

  • Once it’s done, you may add cinnamon, dried fruit, honey, or any other ingredients of your choice to add some extra flavor.

Recommendations

  • Keep the oatmeal water in a pitcher or container with a lid in the fridge for up to 4 days. If you notice any changes in the consistency or a strange color or smell, then throw it away.

  • Research has revealed that drinking oatmeal water before your meals can keep your sugar levels from increasing. Nevertheless, you should always check with a doctor.

  • You can also get oatmeal water if you skip step 3, but it will be less flavorful. We recommend that you let the oats soak for at least 8 hours before blending them, using the same water if you don’t want to boil it.
