Strawberries & Cream Oatmeal


Oatmeal is a great breakfast, or anytime, meal! Oats are a significant source of dietary fiber which is great for heart health. The soluble fiber helps trap bad cholesterol (LDL) while leaving the good stuff (HDL). Not to mention, they taste fantastic and keep you satiated.


This recipe is quick and easy... perfect for the morning rush out the door. I often use the same recipe with peaches, instead of strawberries, when they are in season for Peaches & Cream oats.

Strawberries & Cream Oats

(1 Serving)

Ingredients:
  • 1/3 cup quick oats
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 3 ml (3 droppers full) liquid stevia sweetener (this is equivalent to 3 teaspoons of sugar, so you can substitute your favorite sweetener here if you do not have liquid stevia)
  • 1 teaspoon Splenda brown sugar blend (or sweetener of choice)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup strawberries (sliced)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
Method:
  • Place all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl except milk (and any strawberries you want to use as a garnish as pictured). Stir and microwave on high for 2 minutes.
  • Pour milk on top and enjoy!
