Ingredients to Make Peaches and Cream Oatmeal

You might think that you need heavy cream to make this oatmeal. Nope! We use thick creamy vanilla yogurt to make this oatmeal creamy, delicious and packed with nutrition.

  • Oats – old fashioned oats are the best option for this. Their chewy texture and fast cooking time make them perfect for this recipe.
  • Peaches – I definitely recommend fresh peaches for this recipe. There is nothing else like them. Peach season is short and so you can use canned or frozen.
  • Yogurt – Greek yogurt is a must – it’s thick and packed with protein. Normally I use plain yogurt for everything, but this oatmeal is the one exception. I recommend vanilla Greek yogurt for this recipe.
  • Honey – honey is totally optional. If you use plain yogurt, the honey will add that touch of sweetness. If you use vanilla yogurt, then I would leave the honey out.
  • Vanilla Extract – adds that little extra vanilla flavor to make this oatmeal next level.

  • 4 cups water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt, vanilla
  • 4 medium peaches
  • Pour water, salt, and vanilla into a sauce pan. Turn to high heat and bring to a boil.

  • Chop two of the peaches into bite size pieces.

  • Once your water is boiling, add chopped peaches and oats. Stir to combine.

  • Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 6-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. You can cook until the oatmeal is the consistency you like it at. Cook longer for a thicker oatmeal, and shorter for oatmeal with more liquid. Remove from heat.

  • Stir yogurt into the oatmeal, or you can serve it on top in individual bowls. Slice remaining two peaches and add on top. Enjoy!
