Yield: 4 servings
Prep: 5 minutes- but you leave it a few hours before eating, or, overnight.
1 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
6 cups milk, plus more if needed
2-4 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional
Place the oats and milk in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a rapid simmer.
Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring constantly, until the oatmeal is thick, about 10 minutes.

Transfer the oatmeal to a container and refrigerate it for at least 2 hours or overnight.
Strain the liquid, add the vanilla and add more milk if you want it thinner.
great new breakfast Rated: 5 stars out of 5
I tried this as a drink for a light lunch. I halved the recipe and made it in the microwave so I wouldn't burn it. I added about half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon and about 5 Tablespoons of sugar. Then I pureed it in the bender for about 1 minute instead of straining it. then placed it in a large bowl in the freezer to cool off for about 2 hours, checking on it every 30 minutes. It was thick and creamy and my friend loved it without knowing what it was.
Delicious!!!! Rated: 5 stars out of 5
This was a little more work than I thought, but it was worth it. I have already made it twice this week. I love it! Thanks Ingrid!!! Yolanda

Quick, tasty breakfast Rated: 5 stars out of 5
I love this recipe! However, I have modifed it a bit. I use 4 cups 2% milk and 2 cups water instead. In addition to the 1 teaspoon of vanilla, I also add a 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon to the mixture. Then, instead of straining the oats after it has chilled, I use an immersion blender to puree the entire mixture. I pour the smoothie into individual glasses which I keep in the refrigerator ready to enjoy. Karen
Husband Loved It! Rated: 4 stars out of 5
I surprised my husband and made this for him. He loved it. I have to say its not totally my cup of tea but it was pretty good. I would make sure that you add a cinnamon stick. (it was on the show but not in the recipe) It really is important for flavor. I would also make sure I had a great strainer! All in all pretty good recipe.
