Now that I've discovered toppings that significantly cool down the hot oats (to the point that I sometimes heat the toppings up in the microwave!) I don't need the milk to cool anything down. I guess I do it out of habit!
Speaking of milk, it's great in oatmeal but isn't it just so wonderful as a smoothie? This morning's post-spinning class smoothie had frozen bananas and strawberries, strawberry yogurt, oats and flax.
Have a great Thursday!
