While the coconut oatmeal is cooking, slice the top and the bottom off the orange. Place the orange on your cutting board and cut off the rind then slice it into circles.
Top the coconut oatmeal with the orange slices, mango, banana and any or all of the optional toppings.

The amount of water you add will depend on how thick or thin you like your oatmeal. The oatmeal in the pictures has had 2 cups of water added to it and is quite thick. If you're not sure, start with 2 cups and add more at the end of cooking if you would like it thinner.
