Perfect porridge

Here's a perfect alternative to your boring breakfast oatmeal. Personally, I hate eating oatmeal for breakfast. But this yummy porridge will make you forget that you're eating oatmeal!


 Ingredients:
Oatmeal - 1/2 cup
Milk - 1 1/2 cups
Sugar or Splenda - 1 Tbsp
Honey - 1 tsp
Strawberries -  3 nos
Banana - 1/2
Salt - 1 pinch

Method:
  1. In a tall microwavable bowl, add oatmeal, milk and salt and cover with a plastic wrap. Poke the plastic wrap with a fork a couple of times for venting.
  2. Microwave for 3 minutes until oatmeal is cooked and mushy and wait until it cools down
  3. In a blender, add the cooked oatmeal, fruits, honey and sugar and blend for a few minutes.

I used frozen strawberries and fat free milk and it tasted very good. It will be even better with 1 or 2% milk. You can use any kind of fruits you like and I would be very interested to know what other fruits will work well. I might try blueberries next time since I have it already!!
