Summer is definitely here.

Summer means salads, eating healthier, going swimming, and running more. I was trying to eat healthier during the start of the year but I’ve failed miserably. There were too many family occasions, too many restaurant invites, yummy food in friend’s houses, too many barbecues, and too many delicious dishes that you simply must eat with rice.

Plus, our bonding time is never without food.

Last wednesday, I reminded myself of some goals I have for this year that I hope to accomplish.

I think I’ve already shared with you last week about my plan to low carb and portion control my way into losing weight by this week. I started last wednesday. I’ve been doing hip hop abs again (with Ykaie this morning) and has avoided white rice for four days now. Woohoo!!

Oatmeal has yet again found it’s way into my breakfast. Since I am trying to avoid sugar as much as I can, I let go of condensed milk. This is the first time I’m eating my oatmeal without it. But you know how I hate oatmeal that’s devoid of flavor. I made this oatmeal with my recent favorite dessert in mind : Key Lime Pie.

This has the familiar tartness, sweetness, and creaminess of Key Lime Pie but all the healthful goodness of oatmeal.

Just right to start my day with.

Ingredients

Scale

  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp lime zest
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • graham cracker, as garnish

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl combine plain yogurt and lime zest. Set aside in the fridge to chill.
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat 1 cup milk and rolled oats and bring to a boil. Simmer until cooked. If you’re using instant oats, then just combine heated milk and instant oatmeal.

  1. Goodness I often eat oatmeal for breakfast. I eat yogurt every day. And one of my all time favorite desserts is key lime pie. This is such a keeper of a recipe. Thank you. I can’t wait to try it. And hey hey for getting back in the swing of what helps you to lose and control weight. Keep us posted.

  2. Peachy,this is such an innovative idea for enjoying instant pied goodness…we are nuts over key lime pies…crave for it in the strangest times of the day when we can’t start with a pie crust and whipped cream….but this looks like the bestest way to say goodbye to those pangs and craving,thanks so much for such delicious inspirations…Have A Great Day!!! 🙂

  3. I have been using oatmeal for my breakfast for almost already a year and I lost weight 10 kilos (from 70 to 60) with a daily brisk walking. This recipe really sounds perfect. Very good idea.

  4. This is definitely healthy. I love oatmeal. But sometimes, i get bored with the usual oatmeal milk and fruits combination. So this is a good change.
