Sweet Cinnamon Oatmeal Drink

by Cassidy Stockton in Featured Articles, Recipes

Over the last few months, we’ve been taking a look at how different cultures use our products. One such discovery was a sweet, cinnamon oatmeal drink much like Horchata. This drink is made as a special treat and sounds like just the thing for a hot summer night. Traditionally, Horchata would be made with ground almonds, ground tigernuts, or rice milk, but, as we discovered, it’s just as often made with oats in Mexican-American households.

  1. Being lactose intolerant, I’ve discovered oatmeal milk. I get an oat beverage powdered mix at Asian markets. Why can’t America get on board–oh yeah, the Dairy Council has too much power!
