Agua de Avena
- 1 cups old-fashioned oats
- 10 to 12 cups water
- 1 cinnamon stick (4-inches)
- 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
- Granulated sugar (optional)
Place the oats in a medium bowl. Pour in 4 cups of the water and let the oats soak for at least 30 minutes. Puree the oats, the water they were soaked in and a cinnamon stick in a blender until smooth. Strain puree into a 1-gallon pitcher. Add the sweetened condensed milk and stir until completely dissolved. Sweeten with granulated sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, if desired. Serve over ice. Enjoy!
