Good Morning Oatmeal
I read the recipe for Good Morning Oatmeal in the American Profile section of our South Bend Tribune and knew I had to try it. Breakfast is an important meal and most American’s are like me and in too much of a hurry to enjoy it. Dress up your next batch of oatmeal by making Good Morning Oatmeal.
Things you will need:
- 1 1/2 cups of Apple or Pear Juice
- 1/2 (6 ounces) package of mixed dried fruit
- 1/3 cup brown sugar (optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 firm ripe pear cored and chopped.
- 2 1/2 cups 2% milk
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups quick oats
- 2 (6 ounce)nonfat vanilla yogurt
- 1/2 cup almond slivers
- With diabetes and high blood pressure in my family tree, and oatmeal being good for lowering your cholesterol and blood pressure, I thought I would try it. Get out all ingredients and a saucepan.
- In a saucepan, combine juice, dried fruit, sugar (if using) and cinnamon. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer covered for 20 minutes.
- Add the pears; cook covered for another 10 minutes. Drain off and throw away liquid. Let it cool.
- Bring water and milk to a boil and add the salt and oats. Reduce to medium heat and cook one minute stirring often.
- Serve up oatmeal and top with fruit mixture, yogurt and almond slivers. This recipe makes six servings.
