Agua de Avena...
If you like Horchata, you are going to love Agua de Avena. It's made with oats, cinnamon and sweetened condensed milk. Served with lots of ice...there is nothing like a tall glass of Agua de Avena.
Agua de Avena
1 cups oats
10 cups water
1 cinnamon stick (4-inches)
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar (optional)
Place the oats in a medium bowl. Cover with 4 cups of the water and let soak for at least 30 minutes.
Puree the oats, the water they were soaked in and a cinnamon stick in blender for 1 minute.
Strain puree into a 4 quart pitcher. Pour in the remaining 6 cups of water.
Stir in the can of sweetened condensed milk. Mix well until the sweetened condensed milk has completely dissolved. Taste for sweetness; add more sugar if necessary. (I used 1/3 cup of sugar.)
Fill pitcher with ice, before serving. Enjoy!!!
