Chilled Swiss Oatmeal

Jun 14, 2012
I woke up happy...

like really happy...

no, I am not moving to New York, then I would have been really really happy..

Actually, I had one of my favorite breakfast already waiting for me!! Chilled Swiss Oatmeal- similar to one at the Corner Bakery.

If you like oatmeal, it would be wrong not to try these.


Even if you don't, you should just try it anyways..This is everything you want on a hot summer morning.  Its chilled, no bake and what I love the most is I can make it night before and all I do is wake up with a big smile & enjoy my delicious breakfast full of fiber, protein, all the goodness from fruits & nuts.

For individual breakfast serving
Ingredients
1/2 cup old-fashioned oatmeal (may use steel cut but not the instant kind)
6 oz low-fat vanilla yogurt (if using plain yogurt, add honey for sweetness)
1/3 cup milk of your choice
1 small apple, chopped
1 small banana, chopped
2-3 tablespoon dried cranberry or raisins
1 tablespoon nuts of your choice ( i use walnuts, almonds or peanuts)

Directions
-In a small bowl, add oatmeal, yogurt, milk and combine. Let it sit for few minutes or several hours in the refrigerator.  Then add apples, banana, dried fruits and stir until well combined. Top with nuts before serving.

Note: it tastes best when allowed to sit overnight. Add fruits right before serving to prevent browning and being mushy.

  5. I love oatmeal but in the summer I have a hard time eating it hot when it's 100° outside. I love this version! So fresh and cool. Definitely gonna give it a try!
