oatmeal latte.

Posted by


I made this creation for a contest that Purely Elizabeth was hosting on Instagram – Creative Oats Contest!  I took an oatmeal cup, and made it into a latte.  How cute?!?



  • 1 Purely Elizabeth oatmeal cup OR 1/2 cup instant oats
  • 1 cup milk of choice (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup foamed milk (I actually used regular 1% milk for the foam – it works better!  I have a milk steamer.  You don’t have to used foamed milk – totally optional)
  • 1 shot espresso
  • toppings: granola, slivered almonds, cinnamon, etc.



  • In a small sauce pan, combine oatmeal, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla.
  • Cook until oatmeal is thick and creamy, stirring frequently.
  • Transfer oatmeal to a mug.
  • Top oatmeal with shot of espresso, foamed milk, and toppings.
  • Sip, sip, scoop! Enjoy!
