½ Naval Orange 

1 can (14 ounces) light coconut milk 

1 teaspoon vanilla extract 

Pinch of salt 

1 2/3 cups old fashioned rolled oats (not instant) 

1/3 cup raisins

½ teaspoon ground cardamom 

2 bananas, sliced 

¼ cup coarsely chopped cashews 

2 tablespoons agave nectar or maple syrup


1. Finely grate the zest from the orange half into a medium bowl. Stir in the coconut milk, vanilla extract, salt, oats, raisins, and ¼ teaspoon of the cardamom. Cover and refrigerate the oats mixture overnight.

2. Divide the oatmeal among four bowls and top it with bananas, cashews, agave nectar, and remaining ¼ teaspoon cardamom. Cut the rind off the orange half. Slice between the membranes to release the segments. Chop the segments and evenly scatter orange pieces over each bowl.

TIP: Used dried cherries instead of raisins for a different flavor. You can also replace the light coconut milk with 2% dairy milk if you'd like.
