Oatmeal with coconut milk, palm sugar and persimmons

Oatmeal with coconut milk and persimmons

What could be more comforting than a bowl of warm oatmeal? Why, oatmeal made with coconut milk, of course! And this hearty oatmeal is brimming with the creamy, delicate flavor of coconut milk – a dream…

But why stop there? The warm grains are sprinkled with coconut palm sugar (so full of flavor that you only need a smattering); toasted coconut flakes; and luscious, ripe persimmons – all of which offer the most delicious contrast to the chewy, hearty steel-cut oats.

I dare say there’s nothing boring about this oatmeal…

This is gorgeous Viviane! Would never have though to use persimmons this way. Just pinned!

Toni, Thank you so, so much!

We often have oatmeal for breakfast with sliced bananas. The addition of coconut and sweet, vibrant persimmon would be a scrumptious break from our daily routine!

HI Deb, I’m with you… Persimmons do brighten up this bowl of oatmeal!

What a gorgeous bowl of oatmeal! I love persimmon but have never thought of serving them with oatmeal and certainly not coconut milk. What a great combination of flavors!

Hi Mj! Coconut milk is my new favorite food with oatmeal… In fact, it’s so cold here today that I’m making myself a bowl for lunch! Thank you so much for stopping by…
