In contrast to my pumpkin cheesecake oatmeal, this is a lot richer & sweeter. You can use more cream cheese/whipped topping, or not. It honestly won’t make that much of a difference in taste, just make sure that you have an equal ratio of cream cheese to whipped topping (1 tablespoon of cream cheese to 1 tablespoon of whipped topping). Ricotta cheese might also be an interesting addition to try.
The jello pudding mix is what makes it super sweet though so vary accordingly!
1/3 cup rolled oats
1 ounce (two tablespoons) fat free cream cheese
2 tablespoons fat free whipped topping (light whipped cream should work too, -5 cals)
2 teaspoons sugar free fat free jell-o cheesecake pudding mix
2 tablespoons liquid egg whites/1 egg white (optional)
1 tablespoon sugar free maple syrup (optional)
Cinnamon and truvia to taste (I used three truvia packets in the whole thing, two should probably be enough if you don’t have a massive sweet tooth like me)
Prepare oats using overnight oats method. Chop up strawberries (or puree them in a blender/magic bullet, that will make this more ‘strawberry’) and add to oatmeal. Add in cream cheese, egg whites, whipped topping, pudding mix, trivia, and microwave until cream cheese and whipped topping have melted into oatmeal. Mix well and add cinnamon and maple syrup on top. Whipped cream for an extra 15c!
PS: As a testament to how good this was, I’ll tell you guys that I had half of this nice and warm for breakfast in the morning, put the rest in the fridge, and ate the other half cold for dessert in the evening. It was AMAZING both ways :)
