  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/4 cup of agave or 3 dates pitted
  • 3 cups of water + 2 cups of water


  • Soak the almonds and cinnamon in water for at least three hours or overnight.
  • When they are ready, drain them and blend with the oats and three cups of water.
  • If using dates, add them here.
  • When everything is well blended, strain this mixture using an old kitchen towel, a very fine sieve or a nut milk bag.
  • Put in a pitcher, add 2 more cups of water and sweeten with agave or the sweetener that you like best if not using dates.


You can soak the oatmeal too, but not more than three hours and do not over blend. In this link you can find bags to nut milk bags.
