The trick to making creamy oatmeal is to soak the oats overnight in milk in the refrigerator. It also boosts the nutrition.


  • 1 cup uncooked old-fashioned rolled or steel-cut oats 
  • 3 cups fat-free milk 
  • 6-ounces cinnamon-apple Greek yogurt 
  • 1 apple, cored and chopped 
  • 1 pear, cored and chopped 
  • 1 Asian pear, cored and chopped  
  • ¼ cup pomegranate-flavored dried cranberries 
  • 1 half-section low-fat graham cracker, crumbled  
  • 1/8 cup walnuts, chopped 
  • Agave nectar or honey, to drizzle, optional


  1. Soak oatmeal in milk in the refrigerator overnight in a covered bowl. Follow package directions for  cooking, 10 to 30 minutes, depending on type of oats, stirring constantly. Oatmeal is done when it is thick and creamy
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together yogurt and chopped fruits. Spoon mixture over oatmeal. Top with graham cracker crumbles and nuts. Drizzle on agave nectar or honey, if desired.
