Ingredients:

2 Cups Steel Cut Oats or Oat Groats
1/4 Cup Raw Almonds
1/4 Cup Water
6 Medjool Dates, pitted (or 8 smaller pitted dates)
1/2 Teaspoon Cardamom
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Rose Flower Water
1 Cup Raw Almonds
4 Cups Water
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Tablespoon Orange Flower Water
Fresh or Dried Fruit

Directions:

  • Soak the oats and 1/4 cup almonds in water to cover by a couple of inches overnight.
  • In another container soak the cup of almonds in water to cover by a couple of inches overnight.
  • Drain and rinse the oat and almond mixture. Process it in a food processor with water and dates. Add your flavorings of choice (we like cardamom and rose water) and process to the degree of smoothness you want.
  • Drain and rinse almonds and put them, the 4C of water and the flavorings you want (here we like salt, vanilla and orange flower water) and blend on high in a blender for about 3 minutes or until completely pulverized. Strain through a cheese cloth or fine mesh bag.
  • To Serve: Put some of the oat mixture in a bowl, add the almond milk and mix together, top with fresh or dried fruit.
  • Enjoy!
