  • 65 g Oats Quick or porridge oats
  • ¾ Cup Unsweetened milk Your choice of milk
  • ¼ Cup Water
  • 3 tbsp Condensed milk to sweeten
  • ½ tsp Vanilla extract
  • ⅛  Nutmeg
  • Pinch Cinnamon
  • Pinch Salt


  • In a pot, add the water, unsweetened and salt and bring to a boil on medium heat.
  • Add the oats and whisk until the oats starts getting thick.
  • As the oats gets thick, turn the heat to low and continue to whisking.
  • Add the vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg cook for minute or two.
  • Sweeten to taste with condensed milk.


  • For this recipe, I used porridge/quick Oats oats, so it was easy to prepare. If you're using another type of oats like steel cut or groats oats, you will need more water and cooking time to prepare the porridge. 
  • Instead of condensed milk, you can sweeten with sugar or any sweeter of your choice.
