For those who have a sweet tooth, here's an interesting recipe of Oats Ice Cream you can try at home.

  • 1/4 cup fruits of your choice (fresh or frozen)
  • Sugar to taste
  • 1/2 cup hot water or milk as required
  • Chopped fruits to garnish


  • In a bowl, take oats and add boiling water. The water should be just enough to cover the oats. Don't add too much.
  • Mix well and set aside until it cools to room temperature and the water is completely absorbed.

  • Add sugar, if needed and blend to get a smooth paste.
  • Shift the paste to an air tight container and freeze until the paste it set.
  • Scoop, garnish and enjoy the ice cream!

  • Don't want to freeze it completely? No worries, freeze for an hour or two and enjoy like frozen yogurt.

  • Add a teaspoon or 2 of Greek yogurt for a creamier texture.
  • Add flax seeds, chia seeds (sabja) at the time of blending for that healthy kick.
  • Experiment with maple syrup, honey and agave nectar!
