Almond Milk Oatmeal with Fruit Salad April 24, 2011

Almond Milk Oatmeal with Fruit Salad

Jamie says:  Happy Easter, everyone!  It’s a beautiful day, and it’s great to be home with my family for the weekend.  I love all the holiday traditions.  Yesterday was bunny bread-baking in the afternoon and dinner, egg-dyeing, and cupcake decorating in the evening (cupcake decorating has taken the spotlight, the eggs are getting a little jealous).  Today brings Easter mass, brunch at my aunt’s, and dinner at Grandma’s. 

Almond Milk Oatmeal with Fruit Salad

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups fruit salad (strawberries, pineapple, grapes, mango, cantaloupe, honeydew melon)
  • 1/4 cup almond milk (Silk Pure Almond)

Directions:

  1. Pour oatmeal in a microwavable bowl.  Add water.  Microwave for 3 minutes.  Stir.
  2. Cut large pieces of fruit.  Add to cooked oatmeal.  Add a generous splash of almond milk.  Serves: 1.  Enjoy!

I wasn’t sure how I would like some of those fruits in my oatmeal, but I was pleasantly surprised.  I liked the variety in flavor, texture, and moisture.  No need to add sugar; the fruit adds natural sweetness.  The fruit goes nicely with the nutty flavor of the almond milk.

  • Nutrition note:  On holidays when you know you’ll be eating a little more rich food, enjoy a healthy breakfast.  It will help you control your intake of the tasty but not so healthy foods you will later encounter.
