Tropical Summer Coconut Oatmeal is a quick, healthy, and delicious vegan + gluten free breakfast. It’s made with coconut milk and topped with tropical fruit. You will LOVE how light and summery this porridge is!
I know the idea of a summertime oatmeal probably sounds a little odd. I mean, normally I think of oatmeal as a warm start to a wintery day. This coconut oatmeal, with all the tropical flavors, is 100% summer approved.
It’s like a piña colada, in coconut oatmeal form. That might sound strange but believe me when I say, “THIS is the oatmeal you want to eat this summer.”
The oats are slowly simmered in coconut milk and water until they are super rich, creamy, and totally delicious. They’re topped with a trio of tropical fruit and sprinkled with a malty little coconut sugar. Big time yum.
Healthy bonus … this coconut oatmeal is totally vegan and totally awesome. 🙂
