I had some light coconut milk leftover from the Thai dish I made last week, so I decided to make Pina Colada oats. No rum with breakfast though! I admit I was disappointed in this variation of oatmeal. I didn’t really taste the coconut, and the pineapple didn’t make the oats as sweet as I would have liked, so I went back for more Splenda. It was still fun to try something new, but I’ll find another use for leftover coconut milk.
1/2 c. oats
1/3 c. light coconut milk
2/3 c. water
Sugar or Splenda to taste
1/2 c. pineapple tidbits, mostly drained
Mix oats, coconut milk, and water in a saucepan, and cook on medium high until desired consistency, using sugar or Splenda if desired. Top with pineapple tidbits.
