Dairy-Free Avena (Puerto Rican Cinnamon-Oat Drink)

This Avena can be eaten thicker in a bowl like porridge or thinner in a cup as a drink like I’ve made it here. But the taste and warm, comforting feeling you get after is the same.

"Love this drink so much. Love that’s dairy free. Always looking for a good dairy free option." ANDREA

– non-dairy milk (Almond, Soy, and Coconut work well) – gluten-free oat flour (or oats pulsed in a food processor) – cinnamon – clove powder


In a small saucepan, add milk, 2 tbsp oat flour and spices and heat over a low flame, stirring frequently.


Bring to a simmer (don’t boil) as you keep stirring. Watch very closely so you don’t burn and can feel the consistency to make sure it’s thickening up but not too much.


Prep a mug and strainer, turn the heat off on the stove, slowly pour and push the avena into the strainer over your mug (or bowl).


Stir quickly and only take the liquid (not any remaining oat chunks or clumps!) Top with more cinnamon.
