Sweet Cinnamon Flavored Oatmeal Drink



This recipe is a great alternative to the original rice horchata which take hours to make. Though it may not be authentic … it tastes great.
Recipe Source: Food Network
Ingredients
1 cup rolled oats
1 (4-inch) cinnamon stick, broken into tiny pieces
4 cups water
Sugar or agave nectar, as needed
Method:
In a large pitcher, soak the oats, cinnamon and water for a minimum of 30 minutes. Blend the mixture (including the cinnamon) in a blender. Strain and sweeten with sugar or agave, to taste. Serve well-chilled or over ice.

  1. I was expecting toasting the oats. Sounds perfect and quick for nutritious drink. Is it okay to eat oats as they are? I thought they had to be cooked to consume.

    1. I have made this for more than 6 times and the oats being uncooked didn't have any unusual effect on any of us,but if you are still apprehensive you can toast the oats before making this.

  9. Interesting drink! that too with soaked oats! does it have to be rolled oats only? can we do it with quick cooking oats as well?

    1. I think you can do it with quick cooking oats too,but I think it would be better to reduce the soaking time to half as its thinner than than the old fashioned oats.
