Delicious, hazelnut milk oats!

Recently I have been playing around with plant based milks, and have discovered some great ways to add them to your diet. This morning I used hazelnut milk as opposed to cows milk in porridge, and  I loved it!

Out of all the dairy free milks I have tasted, hazelnut milk has the strongest taste. So if you like hazelnuts, you will love the nutty flavor that comes with dairy free milk, especially in porridge which can be quite bland. If you have a sweet tooth, you will love this low fat porridge recipe.

Another great thing about porridge in the morning, is it only takes a few minutes to make. Oats are cheap and you can use all your favorite fruits and nuts to taste. Hazelnut is a great dairy milk alternative. It is contains no saturated fat and is a fantastic source of vitamin E which promotes healthy hair and skin. Oats themselves are high in fibre, helping you feel fuller for longer.

Have you used dairy free milks in porridge before? Why not try hazelnut milk next time for a low fat, healthy breakfast. I am off to enjoy mine in bed!
