Chilled Lemon Apple Oatmeal


I pretty much love them. 

Just talking about them makes me want to whip up a batch of lemon mousse.  Or lemon sour cream pie.  Or both. Mmmm. When life gives me lemons, I’m in a dither.

When I first came home from the hospital with Olive, my mom fixed me some chilled lemon apple oatmeal for breakfast. She explained that oatmeal helps boost a new mother’s milk supply, or at least I think that’s what she said; I was more concerned with why she had not shared this delightful recipe sooner…

Chilled Lemon Apple Oatmeal

  • 1 C. regular oats
  • 1/2 C. milk
  • 1/2 C. lemon yogurt
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, diced

The night before, combine the oats and milk in a bowl.  Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, the oats will have absorbed all the milk.


Add the lemon yogurt and diced apples; mix everything together well. 

Yup. That’s it.  Unbelievably easy.  The hardest part is really just remembering to soak the oats the night before. Even the husband (an admitted meat-and-potatoes guy) likes it, so this is a regular breakfast food around here.
