Serves: 1

1/4 ripe, Fresh California Avocado
1/2 cup oats
1/3 cup coconut milk (carton, not canned)
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tsp. brown sugar*
1 tsp. milled chia seeds
1 tsp. toasted sesame seeds
1 tsp. chopped green onions

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting.
Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados.


  1. Mash half of the avocado and slice the other half.
  2. Prepare oatmeal according to package directions using coconut milk, water, soy sauce and brown sugar.
  3. Stir mashed avocado and chia seeds into prepared oatmeal. Garnish with sliced avocado, sesame seeds and green onions.

Beverage Pairing: Hot Tea

*Original recipe calls for regular soy sauce. For a vegan recipe make sure the soy sauce is specified as vegan and use a vegan sweetener in place of the brown sugar.

** Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
