Avena Caliente (Hot Oatmeal Drink)

This is a lovely hot, heavy breakfast drink that will surely become one of your favorites. Even if you don’t like traditional oatmeal, give this a try.Hands on time:  20 minutes
Serves: 4

You will need:
Heavy bottom pot

  • Hot Water – 2 cup
  • Oats – 1 cup
  • Ground Cinnamon – 1 Tbls.
  • Ground Cloves – 1 tsp.
  • Nutmeg – 1 tsp.
  • Milk – 4 cup
  • Sugar – 1/3 cup

When you wake (or night before) put water and oats in blender to soak. Get ready for your day while oats soak for at least 1/2hr (up to 12hrs will not hurt).
Add spices and half the milk to oat mix and blend until liquid.
Pour mixture through strainer into cooking pot and add sugar. Give solids to chickens or dog. There will be only a few tablespoons.
Cook over medium-high heat (6), stirring regularly to make sure it doesn’t stick.
When it begins to thicken a little, turn off heat. It will thicken more as it cools.
Serve in large mugs.

Adjust spices to your taste; substitute all-spice if you prefer. I’ve made this with only cinnamon and it was fine, though I prefer it with clove.
