Oatmeal Fun -2

~ Oatmeal Fun-2 ~ 

Summer brings a wealth of delicious juicy 
produce, from mangoes to melons from lychees
to stone fruits the list is endless. Of all the summer 
fruits my family eagerly waits for the special 
summer bounty of gorgeous ripe luscious mangoes,
to eat as it is or for relishing in innumerable 
gluttonous avatars - aamras, srikhand, popsicles,
shakes, smoothies, cheesecake, salsa or as a 
generous topping on daily oatmeal.

Scorching summers are almost here and mangoes
 not only help us in keeping  hydrated but also 
supplies loads of Vitamin A and fibre to our bodies. 
The natural sugars in this king of fruits 
is undoubtedly the  perfect treat for that 
clamouring sweet tooth too. Mangoes are full of 
benefits -right from keeping cholesterol levels in 
check, to aiding in digestion and strengthening
 immune system and fighting  microbial infections, 
it is no less than a wonder fruit.

 Oats and mangoes make a great combination . The
 sweet aromatic flavour of mangoes adds a perfect 
tropical zing to the humble oatmeal. If your child 
turns up his nose at the bowl of plain/regular
 oatmeal, get ready to play and boost its nutritional
 value with some chopped or finely grated mangoes 
in a cute creative avatar.

Oats is surely a super grain. Since it  is so versatile,
 it can easily be used to enrich other recipes or be 
paired with loads of seasonal /exotic fruits and
 spice toppings for a new flavour  each day. Having
 been associated with Quaker Oats for their recipe
 development and food photography projects has 
made me experiment and understand so much 
more about the super grain.
