Blueberry Coconut Oatmeal
Yield: 1 serving

1 cup water
Pinch kosher salt
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon coconut milk
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 teaspoon confectioners sugar
1/4 cup blueberries
1 tablespoons sweetened coconut flakes, toasted

1) Bring the water and a pinch of kosher salt to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce the heat to medium-low and stir in the oats. Cook, stirring frequently, until the oats are creamy and tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat, stir in the brown sugar, cover and rest until the oatmeal thickens slightly, about 2 minutes.

2) As the oatmeal cooks, whisk together the coconut milk, heavy cream and confectioners sugar in a small bowl until soft peaks form, similar to the consistency of whipped cream.

3) Spoon the oatmeal into a bowl and top with the blueberries. Dollop with the coconut milk whipped cream and top with the toasted coconut flakes. Enjoy warm or cool.
