  • 2 cups milk of choice (I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk)

  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • Pinch of black pepper optional
  • 1 cup rolled oats (old-fashioned oats)


  • In a small saucepan, combine milk, maple syrup, turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, and vanilla extract, and black pepper. Bring to a boil.
  • Stir in oats and a reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until thickened. Add more milk if you prefer a thinner texture.
  • Serve in individual bowls. Top with nuts, fruit, nut butter, cinnamon, or maple syrup, or any toppings you prefer. Enjoy!
