strawberries and cream is one of my top favorite combos, especially when the weather gets warmer and flowers bloom. what better than to make this classic duo into an oatmeal recipe?! Dairy-Free Strawberries and Cream Oatmeal is made in a matter of minutes with real and delicious flavors.
oatmeal is my forever go-to breakfast since i can tailor the flavors to whatever i want, it’s filling and well, SO YUM.
this take on oatmeal is packed with sprouted organic oats (i buy one degree organics), coconut cream, fresh strawberries, strawberry jam and more.
it’s that kind of breakfast that feels so indulgent but it’s really not! the strawberry jam adds a necessary sweet component in my opinion. you can add one or two tbsp!
if that’s not sweet enough for you, maple syrup would be a great addition or a little bit of coconut sugar.
i would start out with 1 tbsp of jam and then add on from there depending on the taste.
ah, sooo how is the oatmeal light pink?! we’re actually going to blend the fresh strawberries, strawberry jam, coconut cream and dairy free milk in a blender before adding the liquid.
that creates this delicious strawberry milk to cook the oats in!
you’re also going to need water but all of the flavor is coming from the strawberry milk.
as aforementioned, do a taste test of the strawberry milk and add more jam or a sweetener accordingly!
here’s a list of everything you need for Dairy-Free Strawberries and Cream Oatmeal!
- oats (used one degree organics sprouted and GF oats)
- strawberry jam
- shredded coconut
- coconut cream
- almond extract
- dairy free unsweetened milk
- vegan whipped cream for topping (used silk heavy whipping cream alternative) but coconut cream works too!
the oatmeal only takes about 8-9 minutes to cook on medium heat but it’s important you monitor the oatmeal closely and stir very often.
this will prevent sticking/burning to the bottom of the pan and ensure a creamy outcome.
