Tropical Oatmeal

Sweden is very cold and very snowy right now. Yes, it's a beautiful winter but I am NOT a winter person (cold weather is not my thing... Am I living in the wrong country or what?). So long story short I really long for spring and summer and can't wait for warm sunshine on my skin.

So what has that to do with tropical oatmeal? Well, first of all oatmeal is very warming. But most importantly tropical flavours like mango and coconut make me think of warm summer days, bare feet on the grass and happy lazy days off work. So basically sunshine in a bowl of oatmeal. Enjoy!

Tropical Oatmeal
Serves 1

1/2 cup (1 dl) rolled oats
2 tbsp very creamy coconut milk
3 pieces of dried mango, cut into small pieces
1 fresh/juicy date, cut into small pieces
Pinch of turmeric (for a yellow colour)
1 cup (2 1/2 dl) water

Put all the ingredients into a small saucepan and cook on low heat until all the liquid is absorbed. Serve in a bowl topped with coconut chips, goji berries, mulberries or more dried mango.
