  1. Place all ingredients (minus 1/2 cup almond milk) into a medium sauce pan. Turn to high medium/high heat, mix, and bring to a boil.
  2. Turn heat down to low/medium and simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring consistently until oatmeal thickens.
  3. Add 1/2 cup more almond milk and mix again. Let simmer for 1-2 more minutes. We call this double whipped.
  4. Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
