If your patient enough to soak these oats in milk the night before, that 5 minutes of prep makes this recipe incredibly creamy. As a sufferer of anaemia, I love to add molasses as a sweetener because it provides a dose of iron. Aside from that, it’s reminiscent of gingerbread cookies, which needs no further explanation! So, good.
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tbsp almond or cashew butter
- 1 tbsp blackstrap molasses, or local honey
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of sea salt
- Place the milk, oats, cinnamon and nut butter in the blender, and blend until smooth and creamy.
- Gently heat on the stove and add the molasses, ginger, vanilla and salt to taste, stirring well.
- Pour into a coffee mug and drink warm.
simply a lovely drink to take in the morning.
It seemed very thick so I might add some more almond milk to thin it out some. Otherwise delicious one suggestion if you like it a little sweeter add some equal or Splenda to the mix I think you can also substitute powdered peanut butter for the almond
Love those suggestions! Thanks Kylie!
This is a wonderful recipe. I loved this so much that I featured it in my best of post 11 Warm Smoothies For Winter.
I have not shared the exact recipe, only one image from here, a small quote and all credits given to you and linked back to this page.
Have a fantastic day!

thanks so much K! Really appreciate that xx
Couldn’t you add all ingredients and run this in the blender for a longer time period until warm instead of heating it into a saucepan and adding the remaining spices at that time? Does it break down or adversely affect their flavor?
Hey Joyce – I haven’t personally tried that. Give it a go and et me know what you think x
