Blood orange vanilla oatmeal

  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup oat drink (or other plant-based milk) I use Kaslink AITO organic oat drink
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp cashew butter coconut butter works too! And also white chocolate butter (recipe link in this post)
  • pinch of salt
  • if you want a sweeter oatmeal, you can add sweetener e.g.maple syrup would work well
  • the juice of one blood orange


  • blood orange slices
  • cashews
  • raspberries
  • coconut sugar


  • Optional: Place the oats in a saucepan, add water + milk and let soak for a few minutes.
  • Bring the oats + liquid to a boil and reduce heat. 
  • Cook the oats in medium - low heat stirring every now and then until the oatmeal is soft and creamy (5-10 minutes). Add more liquid if needed.
  • Optional: Turn off heat and remove the saucepan from the heat. Put a lid on and let the oatmeal stay covered for a few minutes.
  • When the oatmeal is ready stir in the vanilla, cashew butter and salt.
  • Squeeze the juice of one blood orange to the oatmeal, give it a little stir and serve the oatmeal with toppings.
  • Enjoy this lovely sweet breakfast!
