How to quickly cool oatmeal for impatient little...
No more whining because the oatmeal is taking too long to cool and mommy isn't blowing fast enough.
After my son's oatmeal is done cooking, I just add a handful of frozen blueberries. As they thaw, they cool the oatmeal to a temperature acceptable to tiny tastebuds. On top of that, you're sneaking in a serving of fruit first thing in the morning.
I use instant oatmeal and use warm water to mix and skip the microwave and serve as is. No need to cool it!
This is great and I think I could put all sorts of frozen fruits in! I usually make the oatmeal (or Malt-O-Meal) a little thick and then add more milk to cool it and thin it at the same time. Thanks!
Great idea! I have been using ice cubes. They work as well.
But that means Goldilocks won't have a chance to come! Just kidding, great idea.
