Adding cream cheese to your oats makes them oh-so creamy and decadent. It’s truly a dessert for breakfast. Once you start adding it, you can never go back. If you’re dairy-free, you can totally substitute dairy-free cream cheese, yogurt or even coconut cream for some added creaminess. Having an intolerance doesn’t have to stop you from enjoying a decadent bowl of oatmeal since there are so many great alternatives out there.

Sure, this oatmeal is all about it’s creamy cheesecake texture and spiced carrot cake flavour but it has 1/2 cup of grated carrot per serving, which means you’re getting a good amount of beta carotene to start the day. The body converts beta carotene into vitamin A – great for your skin and vision.
