Anyways, since it's now officially spring, I'm changing up my ingredients -- from warm, hearty cinnamon and ciders to light fruits and spices.
I try to keep at least some of the following toppings in my apartment at all times: That way I can have a different type of oatmeal every day of the week -- gotta love variety.
- Sweetened flaked coconut
- Lemon zest
- Brown sugar
- Whipped cream
I like to be experimental with my oatmeal -- mixing and matching ingredients. One of my favorite springtime combinations is: peaches, mango, vanilla, yogurt, brown sugar, almonds, and coconut. Maybe a dash of whipped cream if I'm feeling naughty. It's like a tropical party in your mouth.
The worst combo I've made? Peanut butter, jelly, and marshmallow fluff. A friend of mine loves it, but I was not a fan. Way too many different textures going on. Blech.
What do you put on your oatmeal? What's the grossest topping you've put in your oatmeal?
