Dreamy Creamy Coconut Oats

I found something new at a local grocery store yesterday and picked it up to try in our  oats. It is called Coconut Dream and comes in the same style tetra paks as Almond Breeze.

I bought the unsweetened original flavor, and after bringing it home, I calculated the Weight Watchers Points Plus values for it. I was pleasantly surprised that is is only 1 P+ per cup.

Today I used it to cook up our morning oats and they turned out very creamy and had a slight coconut flavor. Very nice. The bit of fat it contains really helped the oats satisfy me till lunch time.

If you want an even more intense coconut flavor, add 2 tsp of cocunut oil to the cooked oats... and add 1 more WW P+ too, per serving.

  1. I love almond milk with my oats - I am sure I'd love coconut milk with my oats! Thank you for the suggestion. I will have to try it out. :)

  2. Yum! I love coconut dream! I don't buy it very often but it makes great smoothies too.

  3. I have never seen Coconut Dream here, but I have to look now! I love coconut and those oats just look amazing! Now I want some. Thanks for always sharing your recipes!! :)
