Oatmeal is an amazing cereal that’s enjoyed in all sorts of ways, but sometimes you might just feel like you want to have something a little more lavish. Generally speaking, the furthest people go with oatmeal might be adding a little cinnamon or maybe some brown sugar. Sometimes people get adventurous enough to add fruit, but have you ever seen anyone add fruit sauces, and coconut?
The next recipe has a dash of adventure with a dash of the exotic. This macaroon strawberry swirl oatmeal is likely to take your taste buds on a flavor coaster that’ll catch you by surprise.
- cup plain shredded coconut
- cup quick oats
- ⅛ cup unsweetened almond milk

Cook the quick oats to their specifications and add the almond milk, sea salt, and sugar. This recipe should yield about 2 servings, but if you want to double the servings, you can simply double the amount of ingredients.
