Tropical Mango Oatmeal

Quick and easy mango oatmeal recipe, made with simple ingredients. This healthy breakfast oatmeal is creamy and packed with mango, coconut and cranberries.

As a kid, I REFUSED to eat oatmeal until my Mom made this tropical mango oatmeal for me.

Ever since I can remember, I have LOVED mangoes and other tropical flavors.

Regular oatmeal is so BLAND and tasteless but these mango oats are a great way to start off the day.

I play around with toppings add-ins all the time and you should have FUN with this recipe too.

Even if you are not an oatmeal fan, I bet you will LIKE this!

It’s almost like having DESSERT for breakfast…lol. 

Here and some TIPS for making this coconut mango oatmeal:

  • Don’t replace milk with water because milk adds creaminess to this oatmeal.
  • Don’t replace butter with oil because butter adds a nice flavor and creaminess to this recipe too.
  • Instead of cinnamon, you can use 1 tsp vanilla extract to make vanilla mango oatmeal.
  • To sweeten this breakfast oatmeal, you can use honey, brown sugar, granulated sugar, maple syrup, molasses or even artificial sweeteners like Splenda.
  • If you are using sweetened mango puree, omit all other sweeteners.
  • To make overnight mango oatmeal, add all the ingredients in a mason jar or a big breakfast bowl and mix well. Cover with saran wrap and store in the fridge and enjoy in the morning for a quick breakfast.
  • To make mango oatmeal smoothie, replace old fashioned oats with quick cooking oats. Add all the ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth.
  • To make baked mango oatmeal, mix all the ingredients in a large bowl and then pour it in an oven-safe dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
  • To make vegan mango oatmeal, omit butter and use vegan milk like almond milk, soy milk or coconut milk.
  • To make banana mango oatmeal, add sliced bananas on top, prior to serving.

Here are some easy oatmeal toppings you can try:

  • Dried fruits
  • Chopped nuts
  • Berries (Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries)
  • Bananas
  • Coconut
  • Chocolate chips

Well, that’s all for today.

  1. My mother fed us so much oatmeal when we were kids that I am still traumatized by the mere sight of the Quaker logo, haha! But this looks really interesting, and since it’s mango season, I might as well try it 🙂

    But the way, your blog is really awesome, mashaAllah.
