I agree with Oolala that the red dye 40 isn't good for you, but this is a fun way to occasionally make your morning oatmeal more of a treat! I used Smucker's strawberry ice cream topping.
So pretty on this Valentine's snow day. I didn't use strawberry syrup but msde it pink by adding a few drops of red food coloring in milk (instead of water) and I added cinnamon and sugar and gave it to my youngest son for breakfast. I like a lot of your ideas for the future! Very healthy and versatile! I know the food coloring isn't healthy but at least it got him to eat it! Thanks and Happy Valentine's Day!
