Makes 2 generous servings or 3 smaller servings.
- 1 cup milk
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/3 – 1/2 cup unsweetened organic shredded coconut
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 + tablespoon virgin coconut oil
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup quick cooking oats*
- 2 tablespoons organic coconut cream concentrate
Combine milk, water, shredded coconut, butter and coconut oil in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Add oats and vanilla; turn heat down slightly and simmer for one minute, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat, add coconut cream concentrate, and cover. Let sit for 3 minutes. Remove lid, stir well and serve.
Top individual servings with your choice of toppings. Ex: maple syrup, slivered almonds, and just a little touch of heavy cream or some additional milk. This is also good with chopped dates.
This oatmeal makes a fast and filling breakfast, particularly if served with some fresh fruit on the side.
*Note: You may also use regular rolled oats for this recipe. Simply increase the amount of liquid used and add the coconut and vanilla after the oats are cooked through.
