Avena means oats in English and it’s a traditional Colombian drink that is rich, creamy and delicious. Great with breakfast or you could serve it at any time of the day. I use almond or soy milk to make this vegan. Use your preferred milk. From my columbian recipes.

Directions

  1. Place the water, milk and oatmeal in a saucepan over medium heat and cook about 15 minutes, stirring often with a wooden spoon.
  2. Add the cinnamon stick, ground cloves and sugar and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 15 more minutes.
  3. Remove the pot from the heat and set aside to cool.
  4. Place the oatmeal mixture in a plastic container and refrigerate for a least 3 hours.
  5. Discard the cinnamon stick and place the mixture in a blender and blend for 2 minutes. Add more water if you like a thinner consistency.
  6. Serve ice cold, with a sprinkling of cinnamon on top.
  7. Some people use a little sweetened condensed milk in this recipe. Sounds good!
