Tropical refrigerator oatmeal

Combine, stir and refrigerate the ingredients at night, and enjoy this the next day. It's as simple as that. Add papaya and passionfruit to the mix and you have a great-tasting breakfast. You could microwave or cook your oatmeal with fruit in it, but I think that makes the fruit lose its fresh taste. So a little effort the night before, and you've made a great start on your day.


2 Solo® papayas
1 passionfruit (optional)
2/3 cup regular (not quick) oats
6 oz. low-fat vanilla Greek yogurt
1/4 cup almond milk (1/8 cup if passionfruit is added)
1 tbs honey
1 tbs poppy seeds

Yield: 2 servings
Prep time: 10 minutes, plus 8 hours refrigeration

How to chop Solo papaya   How to cut passion fruit


1. Slice one of the Solo papayas in half vertically, discard the seeds and scoop out the orange flesh. Chop into pieces.
2. Cut the passionfruit in half, and scoop out the seeded center.
3. In a medium bowl, combine the passionfruit center, oats, yogurt, almond milk, honey and poppy seeds. Stir. Add the papaya pieces, and stir gently. The oats should be covered with liquid.
4. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and refrigerate at least 8 hours.
5. To serve, stir the oatmeal gently. Slice the other Solo papaya in half vertically and discard the seeds. Strain the oatmeal to the consistency you want, and scoop it into the halves.
