Mango Oatmeal Recipe

Mango oatmeal recipe
Sometime back, I had come across some yummy smoothie recipes listed as “healthy breakfast smoothies”. One of the smoothies was made using oats, banana, and yogurt. Now I didn’t have yogurt at home so I thought let me try making oatmeal instead of a smoothie. I decided to substitute banana with mango. After all it is best to eat seasonal fruits, not that banana is not seasonal, but it’s available all-year long. Also, Devansh really likes mangoes. And so I tried this mango oatmeal recipe and luckily Devansh ate his oatmeal, which he hasn’t done in quite some time.
I started giving Devansh oatmeal cooked in milk after he turned one.
I used to use honey to sweeten it. But after Devansh started eating grownups’ food, he didn’t like the bland oatmeal anymore. Luckily he liked this oatmeal with mango. Oats as you know are high in dietary fiber. Mangoes too are high in fiber and also in vitamin C. They help us prevent cancer, alkalize our body, and are good for our eyesight. Mangoes taste heavenly and provide us with so many health benefits. No wonder mango is considered the king of fruits.
Besides being super nutritious, mango oatmeal recipe is simple and easy. You can make it in 5-10 minutes flat. You are done with one serving of fruit and grains first thing in the morning itself. Remember the “food pyramid”. 😉 Older kids too will like this oatmeal. I hope all you moms like this healthy breakfast recipe.

Mango Oatmeal Recipe for Babies and Toddlers

Simple and easy, nutritious recipe made using Quaker oats and a mango. Ideal as baby food, or healthy breakfast for toddlers and kids.
Author Mukta Tikekar

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp instant oats I used Quaker oats
  • Pulp of 1 mango I used Alphonso
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp sugar You can use less if the mango is sweet enough
  • Pinch of cinnamon powder optional

Instructions

  • Heat a pan and add oats and milk.
  • Cook the oats for about 2-3 minutes while stirring continuously. Turn off heat when they're done.
  • Take the pulp of a mango in a bowl, and add sugar and cinnamon powder. (You can try using honey if you don't want to use sugar. I haven't tried it, so I am not sure how it'll taste.)
  • Mix the mango, cinnamon powder, and sugar properly.
  • Add the oatmeal after it has cooled down and mix it properly. (You can also serve this chilled if your child is old enough to eat chilled food.)

Notes

[adsforwp id="5500"]
At the time of writing this recipe I had not tried organic sugar. After using it now, I would totally recommend it. It is best to opt for organic sugar instead of the regular one.
Alternately, you can use honey instead of sugar. (This tip was shared by MumMumTime reader, Tanvi.)

  1. Hi Mukta, I love all your recipes and I try to make it for my daughter (now 9 months old) .. This recipe looks tasty too but I won't be getting mangoes in the US.. I might try the Gerber mango puree but that can NOT replace our own Hapus Amba! So could you suggest any other option.. Can I use cooked apple (not sure if I can use it raw ). or Plum may be? Thank You! Keep going!

  2. Hi Mukta, I love all your recipes and I try to make them for my daughter ( now 9 months old) .. I think this recipe is great too. Could you suggest any other fruit option instead of mangoes? Can I use apple or plum? Should I cook apple before mixing it? I can't wait to try this recipe and I do not want to use the ready made pulp.. Plus I am not sure if I can get a good quality one that has similar taste like our own hapus amba here in the US ! So might as well try with the fresh available fruit! Thank You ! Keep going!

  3. Hi Supriya…I'm glad you like my recipes 🙂 And I agree with you about not using readymade pulp I would not have used it for Devansh when he was 9 months old either…I can suggest strawberries…here you get readymade strawberry-flavored oats mix…wouldn't suggest that for babies/toddlers but with fresh strawberries it should taste good…you can try with apple too (cooked would be better I think)….add a little cinnamon…apple cinnamon combination tastes good…not sure how plums would taste…you can try…each baby/child is different..try a few combinations to see what your daughter likes…see if you can lay your hands on any organic fruit concentrates…here you get them at FabIndia…if fresh fruits are not available these can be the second best option…and yes I'm going to modify this recipe to use "organic" sugar…I had not started using it then but now I just can't do without it 🙂

    Let me know what you make and if your daughter liked it…click a pic if possible and share with me…you can communicate with me on my Facebook page…LIKE it if you haven't already :p Ciao…

  4. I Used honey instead of sugar and my 16 month old finished a large bowl and wanted more 😍 Thank you for sharing the recipe!!!

  5. Can we give mango in the morning as bfast? I tried oats with apple strawberries but it seems my 9 months old doesn’t like it.
