Cold Summer Oatmeal Revisited


Hot oatmeal is so last winter. Its still summer, so let’s give our morning oatmeal a summertime makeover, shall we? I have made my oatmeal like this for a few years now – ever since Aubrey turned me onto it. It is the perfect cool, crunchy, chewy, yummy summertime breakfast.

And now that I have discovered vanilla coconut milk, oh my.  So so good. Plus the coconut milk only has 5 grams of sugar per cup verses the 9 grams 1 cup of 2% milk has, less sugar!

You can make this a bunch of different ways, the idea is to let your oatmeal soak for about 15 minutes in the milk of your choice (cow’s, almond, soy, coconut) and then add your favorite toppings. Here is how I made mine last year, but this is my newest favorite way to make it.

Summertime Oatmeal


1/2 cup old fashioned oats

3/4 vanilla coconut milk

sliced strawberries


2 Tbs granola

dash of cinnamon

Let the oatmeal soak in the milk for a little bit, and then add the rest of the ingredients. Enjoy!

You can use frozen fruit too, I just add it when I add the milk. Then you have a nice cold bite for those extra hot summer days!

Oh, and my 2 year old loves it too! She started asking for bites of mine, and now she would rather have it cold.

Happy Tuesday friends! I am off to envelope myself in what I hope to be the last of paint fumes.  And just a side note, when painting, books on disc are awesome. They have been a life saver.
