Blueberry Coconut Oatmeal
Serves: 1 very hungry person or 2
Time: 10 minutes
1 C coconut milk (I used canned but the refrigerated kind works fine)
1/2 C old fashioned oats
1/2 t vanilla extract
Dash of ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1/4 C fresh blueberries
1/4 C shredded coconut
Optional: sweetener of your choice, to taste
Bring coconut milk and oats to a gentle boil on medium heat. Turn down to low heat and stir continuously, letting it simmer for about 8-10 minutes or until oats have absorbed most of the milk. Stir in vanilla, cinnamon, salt, blueberries and shredded coconut. Garnish with additional blueberries and coconut, if desired. Enjoy!
