Strawberry Yogurt Oatmeal

Strawberry Yogurt Oatmeal
1/3 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
2/3 cup water
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 handful large, fresh strawberries, sliced or chopped
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the oats and water. Cook on medium (50%) power for four minutes, stirring after two minutes, until liquid is absorbed. Allow to stand until set. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, strawberries, and cinnamon, and add a dash of honey or vanilla extract, if desired. 
Fold the yogurt mixture into the oats and enjoy!

Now is the time to enjoy some fresh, ripe strawberries. They are delicious eaten just as is, so it is best not to mask their beautiful tasty. Here is a great way to start your day off right with some strawberries, with a hearty, creamy bowl of oatmeal. Greek yogurt is ideal for this, as the thick texture will not thin out the oatmeal, but any flavor could be used.
