I’m certainly not the only one to find that during the fall season, we all have, at one time or another, a need for comfort. Some people love to fill this need by binge-watching a TV show while being tightly wrapped under the covers. And there are others, like me, who find comfort by introducing autumn flavours into the kitchen. Think of stews, soups, squash, pumpkin, spices…and oatmeal! I believe that it’s finally time to give back some love and praise to this neglected breakfast from our childhood. By adding a few Evive Yin Smoothie cubes, caramelized apples and pecans, and pumpkin spice to your next oatmeal, I swear you won’t want to wait until morning to enjoy it! Grab a plush blanket, put on your favourite show, and enjoy this delicious oatmeal bowl!

Evive Yin Oatmeal Bowl

Serves 2 to 3 portions


– 3 cubes of Evive’s Yin Smoothie
– 2 apples cut in slices
– 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
– 4 tablespoons maple syrup
– 1/3 cup of pecans
– 1 cup of oats
– 2 cups of almond milk
– 1 tablespoon of pumpkin spice


In a frying pan over medium-high heat, sauté the apple slices and pecans in coconut oil and 2 tablespoons maple syrup. Cook until apples are caramelized (5 to 7 minutes), then set aside.

In the same pan, add the oats, pumpkin spice (or 5 spices), maple syrup, 2 Evive Yin Smoothie cubes, and almond milk. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer according to the cooking time indicated on the package of your oats.

When the mixture is creamy, pour into the bowls, then garnish with the apple-pecan mixture, pour 1 tablespoon of maple syrup per bowl, then finish with a Yin smoothie cube which will gently melt and add a touch of richness to the bowl… Bon appétit!
