Cherry and Tangerine Oatmeal

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 10 mins

A tasty healthy breakfast porridge. The flavors blend well by chilling the milk, oatmeal, and fruit together over night then cooking. Cook time does not include chill time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a nonmetal bowl combine oates, cherries, tangerine peel, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg. Stir in milk; cover and chill for 8-24 hours.
  2. To serve, transfer oatmeal mixture to a saucepan. Heat just to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered 5 mins or until oatmeal is done, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove from heat. Stir in butter until melted. If desired, top with warmed milk, sugar and nuts.

I cut this down to serve one but left out the butter, used canned cherries in place of dried & served with vanilla yoghurt. I loved the tang the orange gave to this, was a nice touch. Thanks for posting!

I am a huge fan of oatmeal! I made this with cherry pie filling I had in the cabinet. I used grated orange peel and all the spices listed then topped with warm milk. I don't eat any nuts, so I didn't use them. Since I used the pie filling,and regular oats I didn't have to let it sit. I just put it all together and threw it in the microwave! Then presto... Breakfast!

I really like the dried fruit mixed in with the oatmeal. I used a little orange rind in place and sprinkled some pecans over the top. Good stuff.
