Introduction: Oatmeal Milkshake

About: Learn more about me here: or follow me on Twitter (@shesparticular) (if you're into that sort of thing).

Somewhat similar to horchata or a liquified oatmeal cookie, Oatmeal (Avena) Milkshakes are slightly sweet, rich, thick, and spiced with cinnamon. Not only are they seriously delicious, they also make a perfect breakfast on the go or an awesome addition to any meal.

Step 1: You'll Need. . .

  • 1 cup milk (can be substituted with soy milk or water if desired)
  • 1/2 cup quick oats (you can use the kind in pre-measured packets if you'd like)
  • 1 cup ice
  • 4 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk (can be substituted with honey, sugar, or other sweetener if desired)
  • cinnamon (to taste - I use about a teaspoon)

  • Blender

Step 2: Blend It Up

  1. Add ice, milk, and oats to the blender and mix on high until ice is crushed
  2. Add condensed milk and cinnamon and blend (Note: If using alternate sweeteners instead of condensed milk, taste before adding to avoid making the shake too sweet)
  3. Pour into a glass, sprinkle with cinnamon, and add a straw (bonus points for a bendy straw)
  4. Enjoy!
