Out of convenience I have often just purchased cartons of sugar free plain coconut milk based creamers to use in my savoury soups and sauces. However, in recent times they have really shot up in price, I mean REALLY shot up in price!! In light of that, I decided that I needed to just start making my own plant based creamers, just as I make my own plant milks. I always have organic sprouted certified gluten free oats on hand in my pantry. This recipe uses inexpensive spouted oats and takes minutes to prepare. I recommend soaking the oats first for at least 30-50 minutes though it is not essential. I prefer to soak them to remove some of the substances in raw, uncooked grains that causes tummy issues for some. I only eat sprouted oats. The process of sprouting grains is in fact a germination process. This increases the available nutrients and it breaks down phytate, a form of phytic acid that decreases the absorption of vitamins and minerals in the body.

 ¾ cup sprouted old fashioned oats, not quick oats
 4 cups water to soak oats
 2 ½ cups Filtered water
 1 pinch sea salt
1

Soak oats for at least 1/2 hour or up to 1-2 hours. Rinse oats and drain through a sieve/ colander. Add oats to a high speed blender or into nut milk maker (if using a Nutr nut milk machine use ratio of about 4 heaping tbsp soaked oats to about 1 cup of filtered water). Add water and sea salt and blend on high speed, for about 1-2 minutes or until smooth and frothy.
