Pina Colada Oatmeal

You know those mornings you wake up after a great sleep, only made better, by having a great dream.  Last night, I was living it up on a white sand beach, drinking a fruity-alcoholic beverage straight from a coconut, and listening to the sound of waves.  Oh ya, also, Adam Levine was there.  No big deal.  We were just vacationing together.

Snap back to reality.  No beach, no fruity drink, no waves, and the only thing of Adam Levine to be found, comes courtesy of my iPod playlist.

At least I have breakfast.  A tropical, beach inspired breakfast.  Aloha.

Pina Colada Oatmeal

1 cup vanilla coconut milk, plus more for serving
1/4 cup fresh pineapple, crushed
1/2 cup Quaker quick cooking oats
1 tsp brown sugar (optional)
1/2 cup fresh pineapple, cubed
1 Tbsp unsweetened coconut
1 Tbsp almonds, sliced

In saucepan, heat coconut milk until it reaches a boil.  Add crushed pineapple and oats.  Reduce heat and cook stirring constantly for 5-7 minutes, or until thickened.  Stir in brown sugar and remove from heat.  Pour into a bowl and top with cubed pineapple, coconut and almonds.
