Coconut papaya oatmeal sleepover

Combine, stir and refrigerate the ingredients at night, and enjoy this the next day. It's as simple as that. Caribbean Red® papaya is such a big fruit that I usually have some left over from the evening's salad to toss into this oatmeal mix. And I can always grab a handful of shredded Groovy CoconutTM from my freezer to make the dish. There are great breakfasts in your future when you treat tropicals as kitchen staples.

1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 cup shredded fresh Groovy Coconut
