Try our delicious and nourishing SPINACH OATMEAL WITH BERRIES packed full of healthy ingredients and amazing creamy texture.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15-20 minutes

Total Time: 25-30 minutes

Serves: 2

Difficulty: 2/10




  • 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)


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.


  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).


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


* If using steel-cut oats soak them overnight to reduce cooking time.

* Storage: Oatmeal can be made-ahead and stored in the fridge in an airtight container.

To make gluten free: Use gluten free oats.

To make dairy free: Use plant milk instead of cow's milk.

To make vegan: Use plant milk instead of cow's milk. Use maple syrup or agave nectar rather than honey.
