Pina Colada Overnight Oatmeal

There is nothing alcoholic about this at all. There's just something about the words oatmeal and alcohol that don't seem to fit together. Or alcohol and breakfast in general. I suppose some may argue that. Anyway, the principle flavors of a pina colada (not that I've ever had one) are definitely present in this oatmeal, and it gives a nice tropical flavor. If we cannot escape the winter down south, at least we can bring some southern flavors to our awful winter. 

Pina Colada Overnight Oatmeal
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1 Tablespoon ground flaxseed
2 Tablespoons shredded coconut
1/4 cup finely diced pineapple (I used fresh)
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 cup milk (coconut milk would work best)
fresh kiwi

As with all my overnight oatmeal recipes, place all ingredients in a bowl or a jar, mix well, and let sit in the refrigerator overnight to thicken. This is another one I do not recommend heating, but rather enjoying cold. Like a nice, cool drink on a hot sunny day. Garnish with fresh kiwi fruit.
