it took my kids a few tries to get used to the 'new oatmeal,' but they now like it- my husband loves it and requests this 'oatmeal drink' often!
hot oatmeal breakfast drink (atole)
an original recipe by rachelle
1 heaping cup oats (instant or regular, both work well!)
2 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup sugar
2 cups milk
heat water, salt and sugar in pan until boiling. add oats, cook for 2-3 minutes.
meanwhile, heat up milk in microwave for 2 minutes or bring to an *almost* boil in another pan.
pour milk in blender and add hot cooked oatmeal mixture.
start blender on low and hold onto the lid with a towel- this is a full load for a blender so start slow.
increase blender to high and blend until smooth.
serve in mugs. add a sprinkle of cinnamon if you like!
