Otoño Avena Caliente- Fall Oatmeal Drink


We are official in the fall season in NYC! this week the highs will be in the 70's but starting the day in the 60's F. I know I tend to switch to warmer breakfasts. I grew up enjoying warm oatmeal as a drink. It was always spiced with cloves and cinnamon. As a spice lover as an adult, I have added more spices to the mix.


Avena Caliente was a staple in my Dominican household. It's a very hearty meal that is great on the go. When I worked in Harlem, it was a go-to breakfast on my way to work.


My recipe for my Otoño Avena Caliente is the following but I encourage you to add the spices you love.

Otoño Avena Caliente


1/2 cup of quick oats

2 cups of water


Blend and pulse in a blender to combine and add to a pot.


To the pot add 2 cups of milk of choice ( I used almond)

2 tsp of my spice blend

1 tbsp coconut sugar


Spice blend- I make my own with ground turmeric, ground cardamom, a pinch of ground black pepper, ground cinnamon, and ground allspice. ( Usually, it's equal parts of the spices except for black pepper)


Now everything is in the pot and turn on the heat. I usually bring it to a boil will mixing it. It will get thick and develop to the consistency above but pourable. I do not strain, I enjoy the bits of oatmeal plus it adds fiber. Fiber is essential in a nutritious meal. Strain if you prefer but definitely enjoy on a cold morning and it's great to go with you.
