Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15-20 minutes

Total Time: 25-30 minutes

Serves: 2

Difficulty: 2/10

 

INGREDIENTS


Oatmeal:

  • 1 cup oats (use gluten free oats for gluten free oatmeal)

  • 1.5 cups milk of choice + more to dilute in the morning if oatmeal made ahead (approx. 1/4 cup per serving)

  • 1 cup (packed) spinach leaves (fresh or frozen)

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 2 Tbsp agave nectar (alternatively use maple syrup or honey)


Optional toppings:

  • fresh berries of choice (I used a mix of blueberries, raspberries and strawberries)


INSTRUCTIONS


The Oatmeal:

  1. Combine milk, spinach, vanilla extract and agave nectar in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.

  2. Add oats to the pot on medium-high heat along with the spinach-milk mix. Stir to combine the ingredients.

  3. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and allow to cook for about 15-20 minutes. Stir frequently to prevent burning.

  4. Once thick, remove from stove top.

  5. Add a little milk if it's too thick for your liking.

** The oatmeal can be prepared in advance and stored in the fridge.


Re-heating:

  1. If prepared in advance, when you’d like to enjoy the oatmeal, remove it from the fridge and add in extra milk (approx. 1/4 cup per serving) until it reaches the desired consistency (add more milk if you like your oatmeal thinner).

  2. Heat it up in a pot on the stove or in the microwave. Stir frequently to prevent burning (stove) or uneven distribution of heat (microwave).


Assembly:

  1. Add the oatmeal to a bowl and top with fresh berries.


RECIPE NOTES
