Peach Blueberry Oatmeal

Strawberry and bananas, cherry and lime, rhubarb and strawberry… None of those classic fruit combinations appeal to me as much as peach and blueberry. As much as I love a traditional peach cobbler, I’m all for adding blueberries to the equation sometimes.


As I’m writing this post, it just occurred to me that I used to not like blueberries. I liked blueberry-flavored things, like the fake blueberries in Betty Crocker muffin mixes, but the real thing grossed me out entirely. To be honest, I can’t remember really enjoying a blueberry until I made my Baked Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal…and that was not that long ago! Now, a quick click on the “blueberries” label at the bottom of this post shows just how enamored I am with them!


Peach Blueberry 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 rolled oats (I use Country Choice Organic)
  • 1 medium yellow peach
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup fresh blueberries

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.)
  2. Dice up the peach and add to the oatmeal immediately.
  3. Once more of the liquid has absorbed, add vanilla extract, a tiny pinch of salt, and cinnamon. Stir.
  4. If you'd like to add any extra ingredients (coconut oil, dried fruit, nuts, sunflower seeds), do so now.
  5. When you're pleased with the consistency of the oatmeal, add in blueberries and gently stir into the oatmeal, just so they get warm and mixed in.
  6. Transfer to a bowl. Serve with another splash of your milk of choice and any other additional toppings (shredded coconut, nuts, more blueberries, etc.).

    I’m opposite! I’ve always liked fresh blueberries, but couldn’t stand fake blueberry (I ate blueberry yogurt every single day for a year and couldn’t eat anything blueberry flavored after). My regular oatmeal has whatever fruit is turning and needs to be eaten. Blueberry + banana are standard.

    I saw this oatmeal post a few days ago and was intrigued by the idea of this combination of peaches and blueberries. Today, I made oatmeal with sliced up peach, and once it was done cooking, I let it chill in the fridge for about 15 minutes. After that, I took it out and mixed it with Oikos Blueberry Greek Yogurt. It was fantastic!! Thank you so much for giving me the idea of this combination!
