  • 3 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • ⅓ to ½ cup brown sugar or adjust to taste, or 2 oz Piloncillo
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Grind the oats in a blender or small food processor until it reaches a thick flour consistency.
  • In a small pot, add all ingredients and bring to a soft boil
  • Lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring often making sure the milk does not boil over.

It's ready when it reaches the consistency of runny pudding.
If the consistency is too dense, just add a little more milk until it gets more liquidy.
