Mango, Pineapple, and Kiwi Oatmeal

Think of this recipe as Tropical Oatmeal Part 2. I love, love, love mango, and it’s always a delight to pair it with other tropical fruits. For convenience, I always keep a bag of frozen pineapple and frozen mango in my freezer. I don’t like most frozen fruits, but those two hold up beautifully in the freezer. (Strawberries, not so much.)

This means that the only part of this recipe that I had to buy specifically for the recipe was the kiwi (or kiwifruit, if you’re Australian ^_^ ). Everything else was already stocked in my kitchen–yippee!

Mango, Pineapple, and Kiwi Oatmeal

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Yield: serves 1

What you'll need:

  • 1 cup milk of choice, or water
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats (I use Country Choice Organic)
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen diced mango
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen diced pineapple
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 kiwi (or just half of one)

How to make it:

  1. Bring milk (I use an equal mixture of almond milk and water) to a boil, add oats, and reduce heat to medium. (If you’d like to add flax or chia seeds, do so now. I recommend chia.)
  2. Add diced mango and pineapple immediately and stir.
  3. Once more of the liquid has dissolved, add vanilla extract (optional) and a pinch of salt.
  4. Dice the kiwi. Stir half of it into the oatmeal, and set the other half aside.
  5. When you’re pleased with the consistency of the oatmeal, transfer to a bowl. Top with remaining diced kiwi and another splash of your milk of choice. Other toppings you could add are shredded coconut, coconut butter, white chocolate chips, or almonds.

    This looks delicious! I have a feeling that some crushed up banana chips would taste heavenly with this!
