Hot & Cold

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on July 9, 2010

Good morning!

Last night Eric and I started watching a new TV show called Lie to Me. Has anyone else seen this? We LOVED it! It really appeals to my love for forensic psychology and touches on the research that I learned in my law & psychology courses in university. Two thumbs up! We have two seasons to catch up on now…yippee!

It is finally raining and has slightly cooled off today. We are all rejoicing and the plants are soaking up the water like a sponge. I decided that today’s weather called for some hot oatmeal…

Today I decided to try banana soft serve on hot oats! I have heard of a few people trying this and liking it and I thought the combination of the cold soft serve and the hot oats would go really well together, so I gave it a shot.

For the hot oat portion, I made my VOO recipe- 1/2 cup oats, 1.25 cup almond milk, 1/4 scoop Amazing Grass Chocolate Amazing Meal, and chia seeds (only used 1/2 tbsp today because I didn’t want my oats too thick).

Then I made peanut butter banana soft serve by processing 1 frozen banana with 1 tbsp peanut butter:

Then I scooped the hot oats onto a bowl following by the PB soft serve, cacao nibs, and unsweetened coconut:

The perfect breakfast for a rainy day?

I thought these were just OK, but I mostly just enjoyed the parts with banana soft serve. I much prefer cold vegan overnight oats, but that is not too surprising because I have never been a big hot oatmeal fan. I find they are much more refreshing when cold.

and hot Japanese sencha green tea!

This is a loose leaf Bodum tea pot for those of you who were asking. It works great for making huge pots of loose leaf tea!

Have a great Friday!

I love “Lie to Me.” I’m a few episodes behind right now. Have you gotten caught up on the last season? It was really good!

I am totally the opposite of you also, I LOVE hot oats and find them so satisfying. In fact, I have been wanting to try overnight oats but haven’t brought myself to give up a bowl of hot oats in exchange! The banana soft serve looks incredible though!

Looks awesome! I AM a hot oats person (more so than cold), but either way, the combos you come up with are perfection.

I’m the same way — after eating VOO for a while now, I just can’t get used to eating hot oatmeal! Plus, VOO is easier to wash off my bowls :D

I had hot oats this morning too. Hot oatmeal is so comforting on a rainy day!

I always love a warm breakfast to get me going in the morning so I’ve always been a bigger fan of the hot oats, but VOO is still great too.

Lie to me taught me a few things, atleast I’m telling myself that they were facts and I’m super cool for being able to “read” people more often.

I love Lie to Me AND banana soft serve. I just made cacao banana soft serve last night, but I forgot all about the peanut butter. Chocolate and peanut butter…yum! I wish it were raining here.

I love hot/cold combo, but this has to be eaten really fast :D So instead of having the soft serve as the cold part, I throw in some thick yogurt on it. Perfect.

I love both hot and cold oats, so I will have to try the hot/cold combination. It sounds good to me!

I recently tried hot oatmeal with yogurt, an idea I got from IowaGirlEats, and I wasn’t a big fan, mainly becauese I was so scared that the heat from the oats, even after cooling, would curdle the yogurt. But Soft Serve with hot oats, worth a try! Thanks!

I love banana soft serve over hot oats! What I do is make the oats in almond milk then layer it with chocolate banana soft serve. My topping is a nice big blob of cherry jam. I went through a period where that was all I would eat for breakfast.. it is so good.

Sorry to hear your breakfast was disappointing but at least you’ve got some respite from the hot weather!
