There’s a reason oatmeal is such a classic breakfast item. Not only is it comforting and easy to prepare, but it’s also a great way to nourish yourself for the day ahead. Since Almond Milk Oatmeal is a good source of both soluble and insoluble fiber, it will help keep you full for hours. And while oatmeal on it’s own is healthy, what you put in and on top of your oatmeal is also important. Almond milk is a great way to add some “indulgence” to this dish, without unnecessary sugar.
You can use almond milk as the sole source of liquid in this recipe. This will yield the creamiest results. However, for a lighter version, you can substitute some of the almond milk for water instead. The results will still be delicious!
If almond milk isn’t your thing, you could use dairy milk or other plant-based milks, such as soy, cashew, coconut, or hemp.
