A Whipped Oat Revelation
So I’ve always loved oatmeal. And I’ve been reading about the whipped-banana-oats blogging fad for a while now.
So why did it take me oh so long to try it out?!
I made my first batch Sunday morning and the fiance’ and I both loved it. I made them again Monday, yesterday, and today. Yesterday’s batch was the best by FAR.
In my recipe:
1/3 cup quick cooking oats (because I’m always running late)
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup milk (I like thinner oats)
– Once simmering on the stove, I added the following:
1/2 banana, sliced super-duper thin
1 Tbsp toasted slivered almonds (plus 3 slivers for garnish, untoasted… but the toasting really enhances the flavor)
1 Tbsp zante currants
– I removed them from the heat and stirred in:
1 scoop Designer Whey French Vanilla protein powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Oh my, so delicious. I think I should give credit for the original idea to Kath, but please correct me if I’m wrong! And thank you all for the inspiration – whipped oats are a revelation!
Enjoyed alongside a homemade sugar free vanilla latte, which I made by microwaving my milk for 30 seconds, frothing it in the Magic Bullet, and mixing with some leftover really strong coffee.
A perfect start to my day. Any other whipped oat fans out there?
