I have been obsessed with oatmeal lately.

Am I too late on the oatmeal train? I mean, the weather is finally starting to heat up, and all I can think of in the morning is warm bowls of oatmeal.

Just watch. All my summer recipes will be soups and stews. I am so backwards.

But in order to make my oatmeal resemble a spring/summer like feel, I am opting for a strawberries and cream oatmeal. Because the strawberries in my local produce stores are looking gooood!

If you have been following along with my posts lately, you might know that I read the book I quit sugar, which made me want to quit sugar for a week. Obviously my efforts failed miserably. (See my Soft Nutella Cookies post a couple of days into my no sugar diet. Oops).

But there was one ingredient in the book that intrigued me, because I have both never seen it sold, and I saw a recipe in the book using it that I really wanted to make. That ingredient was coconut cream.

So I started searching everywhere for coconut cream. In the ethnic food sections. In health food stores. Then I finally found some in Bulk Barn.

But in my excited haste to buy coconut cream, I didn't read the label that it was sweetened. Sigh. I think I am purposely sabotaging myself in this no sugar diet.

I made this recipe vegan by using almond milk, but you can use whatever milk you have on hand. If you don't have the coconut cream, I would suggest whipping cream, or even milk on top. To make it a little sweeter, you can try evaporated milk. The possibilities are endless!

This recipe took me no time at all to make. I made it, photographed it and got ready for work in less than an hour.

I like to pride myself in my efficiency, but it is rare that I have time to prepare a recipe in the morning before I start my work day.

And I kind of like it. You can be expecting a lot more oatmeal recipes in the upcoming weeks as a result!
