Directions

Prep:
Cook:
Total:
  1. In a nonstick pot, bring your milk and oats to a boil. Allow it to simmer for 3-5 minutes until you get a thick and "porridgy" consistency.
  2. Remove oatmeal from the heat and let it cool before adding the rest of the ingredients, including 1 tbsp orange zest. Add the whey after you cook the oats, or it will curdle.
  3. If you like your oatmeal thicker, add a bit less milk. If you like your oats runnier, add a bit more milk.
  4. For a dessert-like treat, top with your favorite protein ice cream. You can use either a store-bought one, or make your own version.
  5. Note: Almond milk can be used as a substitution for coconut milk.
