I just love this oatmeal and eat it almost every day. You can sprinkle it with some chopped nuts or seeds but then it won't be core.
- 1⁄2 cup rolled oats (quick or old-fashioned)
- 1 cup nonfat milk
- 1 cup frozen mixed berries
- sugar substitute
- Combine oats and milk.
- Heat on stove top at medium heat until mixture comes to a boil.
- Reduce heat simmer until thick, stirring occasionally.
- Add frozen berries and heat through.
- Season to taste.
Yum! This is quick and easy, and the berries are a delicious way to dress up oatmeal. Thanks for sharing! Veggie Swap 56
You can prep this the night before by putting the ingredients in a bowl but I use a 1 cup oats and 1 cup plus a tad of water. Add the fruit and put in the refrigerator overnight. Pop in microwave for a minute or so. So easy!
This made a nice breakfast. I followed other reviewers and used half milk half water and added almond extract (1/8 teaspoon) - which really added something to this. Blackberries, cherries and cranberries were the only frozen fruit I had in the house, so that is what I used, and it worked out well (even the cranberries!). I like how the juice from the frozen berries comes out and colors and flavors the oatmeal.
