Summer foods are meant to be light and refreshing. This oatmeal recipe is the perfect meal to start your hot summer day on the right foot. My Ginger Coconut oats have just a bit of fresh ginger, adding a slight spiciness to mix with the drizzle of honey to add a refreshing sweetness to the bowl. Take a look at the photos below!
1/2 cup Quaker oats
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1 tsp ground ginger
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk or water
1 strip of candied ginger (roughly chopped)
Beginning with my basic oatmeal recipe, add about unsweetened coconut flakes and ground ginger to the pot with your oats and unsweetened coconut milk. Bring to boil.
Once boiling, remove lid and turn town heat to 2 or 3. Stir oatmeal a bit then let simmer for a couple minutes until it is at the consistency/creaminess that you prefer.
Remove from heat and pour into serving bowl. Top with ginger strips and a drizzle of honey.
