In This Recipe


  1. Place all ingredients in the Vitamix and blend on high speed until piping hot and thickened, about 5 minutes. Pour it into your favourite mug and sip away, preferably paired with a worthy read.
  2. If you don’t have a Vitamix, I totally understand, I was there once too. Just combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and simmer until the oats have been cooked out. Transfer the mixture to your blender and blend until smooth. Serve it up all the same.
