INGREDIENTS

For oatmeal

  • 1 cup old fashion rolled oats
  • 1 cup cashew milk made with the NutraMilk (I previously had frozen)
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tbsp. maple syrup, agave, unrefined coconut sugar or manuka honey

For cashew milk

  • 1 cup (150g) cashews
  • 1/8 teaspoon Pink Himalayan salt (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Start by making fresh cashew milk with the NutraMilk:
    • Place cashews in the NutraMilk container.
    • Press Butter cycle, set for 3 minutes.
    • Press Start.
    • Open the container lid, add water and replace lid.
    • Press Mix (do not change the default Mix time).
    • Press Start.
    • Press Dispense.
    • Press Start and open spigot to fill your storage container.

  • Put the oats in a small saucepan and dry-toast on a low heat until they’re slightly golden and smell like baking biscuits. Mix 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp each of nutmeg, allspice and ginger with the oats whilst dry-toasting (this really enhances the flavor).
  • Add the salt, cashew milk, vanilla and sweetener of choice, turn the heat to medium-high and let the porridge come to a rolling boil.
  • Once it has come to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and start stirring.
  • Pour the oatmeal into a bowl to cool for a couple of minutes whilst you prepare your toppings.
  • Top with a fresh fig, a sprinkling of blueberries, cranberries, walnuts and a splash of cold cashew milk.
