Agua de Avena

Spring is almost here and I am getting ready to plan refreshing recipes in my weekly dinner menu. Because I have partnered with Quaker Oats for the next few weeks, I’ve had the opportunity to sample their great products I’ve been provided with.

It’s difficult to select a favorite Quaker product because they are perfect for various meal and snacking situations. I can tell you that I really enjoy developing recipes with their Old Fashioned Oats. Because they are so hearty, I’ve been able to turn them into a kid-friendly tomatoey soup that my 5-year-old son adores.

One of the biggest changes we’ve made in our menu planning this year, is to be more mindful of our beverage choices. Beverages such as aguas frescas which are typically flavored with juices, grains and spices. These type of beverages are sold in the streets of Mexico and are the drink of choice when eating spicy foods to tame the heat.

Agua de avena or oatmeal water is delicious and very easy to prepare. It requires a few ingredients that I am sure you already have in your pantry. Give this delicious recipe a try and I guarantee you’ll see your morning oatmeal in a different kind of light.

Agua de Avena (Oatmeal water)
Serves 6-8

1 cup Quaker Old Fashioned Oats
8 cups water
1 medium cinnamon stick
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk


Soak oats in 4 cups water for 30 minutes to 2 hours.

In a blender, combine oats, 4 cups water the oats were soaked in, cinnamon stick and vanilla extract; puree on high speed for 2 minutes.

Strain oat mixture into a pitcher, stir in condensed milk and remaining cups of water. Serve over ice and enjoy.

La primavera esta casi aquí y me estoy preparando para planificar recetas refrescantes en el menú de la semanal. Porque me he asociado con Quaker Oats para estas próximas semanas, he tenido la oportunidad de probar sus productos me han proporcionado.

Es difícil seleccionar un producto favorito de Quaker porque son perfectos para diversas situaciones de comidas y bocadillos. Les puedo decir que me gusta mucho el desarrollar recetas con sus Old Fashioned Oats. Debido a que son tan abundantes, he podido transformarlas en una sopa de consomé que les encanta a los niños.


Uno de los mayores cambios que hemos hecho en nuestra planificación del menú de este año, es ser más conscientes de nuestras opciones de bebidas. Bebidas como aguas frescas que normalmente se preparan con jugos, granos y especias. Este tipo de bebidas se venden en las calles de México y es la bebida de elección al comer comidas picosas.

El Agua de avena es deliciosa y muy fácil de preparar. Requiere unos pocos ingredientes que estoy segura que ya los tienes en tu despensa. Dale a esta deliciosa receta una oportunidad y te garantizo que verás a tu avena por la mañana muy diferente ya que no solamente se puede preparar como desayuno.

    I’ve been looking for some oatmeal water that my husband mentioned he wanted to try. This morning I saw the jar of oatmeal and remember his request. Well I decided to search for that recipe on Pinterest, and voila!!! I found it, “agua de avena”!!! I only used half of the condensed milk that it asks for just because of the sugar content and the calories. My husband was pretty content. I am definitely making this again. Thank you Ericka!!! Muchisimas gracias!!!
