How to prepare cereal milk
Wash very well the cereal grains in water.
Soak for 24 hours to completely cover with water.
Blend with the water soaking to obtain a homogeneous product.
Add the rest of the water, boil for 20 minutes, let cool and strain.
A colander lined with a cloth that serves as a filter, place the colander in a larger container where it will run off the milk, wring the cloth. The milk is ready.
The pulp of cereals remaining in the cloth is called okara, and can be used to prepare pancakes, meatballs, bread, cakes and biscuits. It is preserved in the refrigerator for 3 days, in the freezer for 3 months and can also be dried.
