  1. Tagged for the *Zaar Stars* game, I made a single serving of this tasty new version of my morning oatmeal. Sweetness is always a matter of pers pref & I agree w/Sarah Jayne that in this recipe it is entirely a matter of the OJ used. I expected mine to be tart & it was, so I used a bit of honey to correct that for me. I esp liked the use of nutmeg & even sprinkled extra atop the oatmeal. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
  2. This was a really nice change from my normal oatmeal. I didn't think it was too tart but I think that may well come down to the orange juice people use. I did add in a tiny bit of splenda brown sugar mix and that really well. It ended up tasting a bit like the creamsicle ice pops I used to get back in the States as a kid. Made for Aus/NZ swap.
  3. this was fabulous. I used "orange cream" by sunkist which is orange juice mixed with whey milk. Quick, flavorful and warming
  4. Mandy this is like eating a smoothie. This was so good. I scaled it to one serving and had it for breakie this AM. Wonderful flavor. I made in the micro and added about 1/2 t of splenda.
  5. This was no where near sweet enough for my family. Quite tart actually. It did get me thinking about sweeter juices...pineapple perhaps? My kids are extremely picky and I couldn't even get them to eat it after adding maple syrup (ALOT of maple syrup made it edible for me) I will try half OJ and half water next time. Thanx for a different take on an old favorite.


Melbourne I live on a 5 acre property in the Dandenong Ranges Victoria, Australia, having moved from the burbs when I became pregnant with my now 15 year old daughter Alyssa. Once my daughter was born I became a stay at home mum as I couldn't bear the thought of putting her in daycare. She is the light of my life, I never imagined myself as a mum when younger but now wouldn't have it any other way. Alyssa was made a big sister on the 19th April 2010 when our cheeky little boy Blake was born. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes so quickly become addicted to Zaar as it was previously known & still use it regularly. In addition to being my kids taxi :lol: I also spend my time, reading, gardening and of course shopping. I'm lucky enough that we have the space & so love growing our own fruits, vegies & herbs, this also means we have plenty of room for animals & at the moment have 2 dogs, Max, a Jackshund who's 6, Fletcher, a Kelpie who's 4, 6 cats Snowpea, Fergus, Ginger, Tango, Annie & Cookie, 4 chooks & 2 Ducks. As well as our pets, we also have a lot of native animals around our area, we have kangaroos, wombats, echidna's, possums as well as rosella's, galah's & Cockatoo's hence the name of where I live..
