I’ve always had a secret love for that packaged strawberries and cream oatmeal and yesterday I decided to take a crack at my own. This was partially motivated by the fact that I have these “Fruit Stick” things that remind me of the little fruit pieces found in those packets. Using those and sliced frozen strawberries with some almond milk, I managed to make a remarkably creamy and tasty alternative that satisfied even me. It was so good that I made it again today, which is where the photos for this post came from.
Just consisting of dried apples with strawberry flavoring, these little things broken up make a great additive to oatmeal.
I sliced the berries while still frozen and added them to the pan.
Strawberries and Cream Oatmeal Recipe
What do you need? (For 4-5 servings)
5-7 large frozen strawberries(or fresh if you have em)
Handful of fruit sticks
3.5 c oatmeal
3.5 c almond milk
2 c water
¼ c sugar
I just added all this to a pan and boiled for about 10 minutes, until the oatmeal seemed cooked. Let it cool for another 5-10 minutes to allow it to thicken and it was ready to eat.
This is hands down probably my best oatmeal recipe I currently have under my belt. It’s bursting with strawberry and is remarkably similar to the thing I grew up eating, only it makes me feel a lot better than those artificial powdered packets did.
So next time you make some oatmeal, give this a try! It was simple and turned out way better than even I expected. If you don’t have access to the fruit sticks, any dried apple product would work. You could easily add more berries instead as well, to get similar results.
Thanks for following and supporting us, until next time!
