Ingredients:

1 1/4 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1/2 cup old-fashioned oats

1 packet natural no-calorie sweetener (like Truvia), or more to taste

1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

Dash salt

Optional toppings: fresh fruit, nuts, Greek yogurt

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a nonstick pot. Add 1 1/4 cups water, and mix well.

Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer. Cook and stir until creamy and thickened, about 15 minutes. (It will thicken more overnight!)

Transfer to a bowl or jar, and let cool completely. Refrigerate until cold and thick, at least 5 hours.
