Oats porridge with homemade almond milk, cinnamon, walnuts, dates & honey

Oats are whole-grain food with excellent nutrients:
Good source of carbohydrate and protein
Rich in soluble fiber, which helps reduce cholesterol and blood sugar levels and increases feelings of fullness.
Rich in important vitamins, minerals and many powerful antioxidants that help reduce blood pressure

Ingredients

1 cup rolled oats, 1 cup homemade almond milk; handful of walnuts and dates, cinnamon, 1 tbsp honey.

Directions

In a medium saucepan, cook the oats with 2 cups of water for 10’ or until tender. Stir in the cinnamon and the almond milk. Place in a bowl and add walnuts, dates and honey.

Homemade almond milk

1-cup raw almond, 3-cup water, ½ tsp vanilla extract (optional), 1- ½ tsp agave syrup or any sweetener (optional), 1 pinch of salt

Soak overnight the almond and let it uncovered. Next day, drain and wash the almonds and keep the shell. In a blinder, mix together the almonds, the 3 cups of fresh water, and all the ingredients above for 40 seconds or until desired consistency. Strain the milk through a fine mesh to extract the liquid. The remained almond paste can be used to make a cake or in a smoothie.

Enjoy!

Note: Bananas, red fruits and other nuts can also be used with the oats porridge as a variation. The homemade almond milk can stay fresh up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
