Grain drinks of all types are popular throughout Latin America. This Hot Chocolate Oatmeal Drink recipe, inspired by our Circle of Friends member, Olga from Virginia, uses oats and is creamy and delicious with a hint of cinnamon. It’s the perfect way to warm up on a chilly autumn or winter day.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 2 cans (12 fl. oz. each) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)
  • 3/4 cup NESTLÉ NESQUIK Chocolate Flavor Powder

Directions

PLACE water and oats in blender container; cover. Blend for 30 seconds. Strain mixture through fine mesh strainer into medium saucepan. Discard solids.

ADD evaporated milk, sugar, cinnamon sticks and nutmeg to saucepan. Cook on medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture lightly coats the back of a spoon (about 25 to 30 minutes). Remove from heat and remove cinnamon sticks.

STIR in Nesquik with wire whisk until well blended. If necessary, additional warmed evaporated milk or water can be added for a thinner consistency. Serve hot with grilled ham and cheese sandwiches or arepas.
