Make this in the spring, when strawberries are in season and cheap! Substitute frozen strawberries if desired.
- 2 cups of milk*
- 1/4 cup of fresh strawberries, tops removed and quartered*
- 4 packets of instant oatmeal*
- 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
In a pot over medium-high heat, combine the milk and strawberries and bring to a boil. Stir the mixture frequently to prevent the milk from burning on the bottom of the pot. Once heated, add in the oatmeal, cinnamon and brown sugar. Stir well and remove from heat. Allow oatmeal to sit for about five minutes before serving so that it can thicken up.
