Sour Cherry Oatmeal With Mango and Shredded Almonds

DSC_0020

I’m one of those people who prefer sour cherries to normal sweet cherries. Today, instead of making sour cherry smoothie (like I did three days in a row before), I made some warm sour cherry oatmeal and added fresh mango for sweetness and shredded almonds for crunchiness and proteins. To make the oatmeal even sweeter (without using any refined sugar), add a few chopped dates or a few drops of date syrup. It tastes amazing! đŸ™‚
