Piña Colada Oatmeal

Try our delicious PIÑA COLADA OATMEAL to get a little taste of the tropics this summer! It's sweet and creamy with only 4 ingredients, including frozen pineapple, coconut milk, milk of choice and oats, and less than 10 minutes effective effort. Enjoy!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15-20 minutes

Total Time: 25-30 minutes

Serves: 3-4 (3 if served immediately, 4 if made ahead and served re-heated with additional milk)

Difficulty: 2/10



  • 1 cup oats (use gluten free oats for gluten free oatmeal)

  • 1 can (400 ml) coconut milk (if you use full fat the oatmeal will be creamier)

  • 1 cup milk of choice + more to dilute in the morning if oatmeal made ahead (approx. 1/4 cup per serving)


  • 2 cups frozen pineapple chunks - blended until smooth

  • pineapple chunks (optional)

  • coconut flakes (optional)

  • desiccated coconut (optional)


The Oatmeal:

  1. Add oats to the pot on medium-high heat along with the milk & coconut milk. Stir to combine the ingredients.

  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and allow to cook for about 15-20 minutes. Stir frequently to prevent burning.

  3. Once thick, remove from stove top.

  4. Add a little milk if it's too thick for your liking.

** The oatmeal can be prepared in advance and stored in the fridge.


  1. If prepared in advance, when you’d like to enjoy the oatmeal, remove it from the fridge and add in extra milk (approx. 1/4 cup per serving) until it reaches the desired consistency (add more milk if you like your oatmeal thinner).

  2. Heat it up in a pot on the stove or in the microwave. Stir frequently to prevent burning (stove) or uneven distribution of heat (microwave).


  1. In a high-speed blender blend 2 cups of pineapple chunks until smooth - it should resemble sorbet. Reserve half to use as oatmeal topping and add the remaining half into the oatmeal. Stir to incorporate.

  2. Add the oatmeal to a bowl and top with toppings of choice.


* If using steel-cut oats soak them overnight to reduce cooking time.

* Storage: Oatmeal can be made-ahead and stored in the fridge in an airtight container.
