Alright so if you haven’t tried it yet, whether it’s not available in your area or you’ve just passed by it at the store, I highly recommend you give Califia Farms almond beverages a go. My favourite flavour is the xx espresso, but the mocha is also delicious. They have many other varieties but I love the coffee flavours because they make for a special treat. Lately I’ve been trying to eat more oatmeal because oats are all around nutritious, but I unfortunately have a tough time with oatmeal, and very few please me. However, the other day I was struck by the idea of adding Califia Farms to my oatmeal, and it helped make it delicious!
I’m a huge coffee lover and can’t get enough of anything coffee-flavoured. So with that being said, if you can’t find the suggested Califia Farms beverages, feel free to add around *1/2 cup (or more or less depending on your preferences) of black coffee to your oatmeal. So, for example, you would use 1/2 cup coffee, and 1 1/4 cup non-dairy milk. You want 1 3/4 cup of liquids so change the measurements based on your preferences.*

serves 2 Ingredients
1 cup Califia Farms Coffee-Flavoured Almond Beverage (ie xx espresso or mocha or sub for black coffee)
3/4 cup non-dairy milk
3 tbsp maple syrup
3 tbsp natural almond butter
pinch of salt
1 cup rolled oats (gluten-free)
banana for serving, optional
chocolate chips for serving, optional
Add all ingredients minus the optional toppings to a pot and heat on medium. Stir everything to incorporate well.
As it begins to cook, stir frequently. Oatmeal has a tendency to stick, so make sure you stir often and keep an eye on it, reducing the heat to medium low if needed.
Cook this for around 10 minutes, or a couple extra if it’s not appropriately thick to your liking. If it dries out too fast then add a little more liquid.
Once the time is up, you can either store it or serve it, and top with anything you like.
