DIRECTIONS

  • In a saucepan, mix the fruit with the sugar and simmer gently.
  • Simmer only until the fruit is soft and the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the burner and cool until the fruit is body temperature or less.
  • In a bowl that you can store in the refrigerator, mix yogurt and uncooked oatmeal.
  • After the fruit has cooled sufficiently, stir it gently into the oatmeal-yogurt mixture.
  • Refrigerate this for at least 7 hours.
  • For fruit, we use frozen blueberries, blackberries, and peaches. I do not recommend pineapple or other highly acidic fruit. We also are not fond of strawberries in this.
  • We use homemade yogurt cultured from a very old Caspian sea culture (it's a bit runnier than standard yogurts).
  • For sweetener, I use either brown sugar, maple syrup, honey, or cactus honey powder.
  • Add spices and dried fruit or nuts as desired.
  • I also will use a roasted whole seven-grain cereal in this recipe, but it requires closer to 12 hours to soften the grains.
