Frescavena is an oatmeal beverage very common in latinamerica. I was a bit put off by the high amounts of sugar in the commercial version, yet I liked the idea of having a creamy and nutritious quick drink for my children. This is our favourite version so far

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 177.44 ml oatmeal (quick or regular)
  • 59.14 ml sugar
  • 59.14 ml cocoa (optional) or 118.29 ml strawberry, freeze-dried
  • vanilla sugar (optional)


  1. Process the oatmeal and sugar in batches in a coffee grinder. This assures a fine powder that will dissolve easily.
  2. If using freeze dried strawberries process them in the coffee grinder too.
  3. Put everything in a suitable container, give it a couple shakes.
  4. When ready to serve add 1 tbsp of mix to a cup of warm milk (for extra creamy) or water and mix. For better results or for drinking it cold use a blender.
