So as you may know I have an obsession with oatmeal that cannot be explained, and since I eat it almost every day it’s been getting kind of bland lately. I have decided to come up with new ways to spice up my “best friend”. So I call this my week of…. Sensational Oatmeal Creations!! Yum! Yum! So each day I will post one of my approved sensational creations that I find to be oh so delicious 🙂 . Monday’s creation is oatmeal parfait. Oatmeal parfait is so simple, quick, and very versatile, you can also use it for a morning breakfast or midday snack to curb those cravings. I had my parfait for a snack today it kept me full until dinner, so I didn’t have to look for anything to munch on throughout my day.
Kiwi, banana, and papaya. I was going for a tropical parfait it is summer and I love tropical fruits this time of year; they always seem to be so sweet and keep me cool :). I also didn’t need to use any added sweeteners it was already sweet.
My very first layer I love the green.
I love yellow one of my favorite colors. Where is the oatmeal? I forgot to take a picture 🙂 Banana was my third and last layer as well.
Papaya has been my favorite fruit this summer gosh I love it so much.. Its so sweet although this one was not as sweet as I would have liked!
½ cup of oatmeal
1 cup of water (any liquid should do)
1 cup of papaya
Directions: Put ½ cup of oatmeal in a microwave safe bowl and heat it for 3 minutes or less. Layer the kiwi first, the oatmeal second, banana, oatmeal, papaya, and banana. Place in the fridge overnight or an hour before you go to work that’s what I did kept me cool.Depending on the cup you use you should get about seven layers or more. I had seven layers 🙂 .
Tonight dinner is yummy as well red cabbage that I made and tortilla soup left over from Sunday dinner.
I may have seconds since its cabbage and I didn’t add to much oil about ½ a table spoon of olive oil.
