I mean, sure, fall has apples and pears, winter is prime for citrus, and spring is the time for rhubarb (at least in my garden), but really? Summer trumps them all.
So here's a recipe calling for berries. Enjoy it now as we cling to the last wisps of summer, or forever hold your peace (because really, winter lasts FOREVER).
Berries 'n' Cream Oatmeal Parfait
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup almond milk, or milk of choice
4 strawberries, stems removed
1/2 tsp. Vanilla extract
Sweetener of choice to taste, optional
3/4 cup yoghurt of choice
Optional: granola, chocolate chips, more berries, coconut, etc.
1) In a blender or food processor, puree milk, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, sweetener, and vanilla.
2) in a small saucepan, cook oats and milk/berry puree until oats are soft and most of the liquid has absorbed. Cool overnight, or until it's cold. This is sped up if it's placed in a shallow bowl.
3) Layer the oatmeal and yoghurt and optional ingredients in a container. Enjoy immediately.
