Honey Mango Oatmeal

Isn’t star anise so pretty?

Confession: When I used it purely for decoration this time, after I finished eating I washed it and dried it and kept it for later.

Is that bad?

I mean come on, could you really toss this cute little thing into the garbage can after breakfast?

I didn’t think so.

Oh and PS: I always need to add this special note cuz it makes a huge difference …

Ideally you’ll want to get pure, thick coconut milk or cream, the kind that’s used in cooking, usually found in the Asian section of your local supermarket … as opposed to those “coconut milks” with lots of ingredients that are more of a (runny) beverage, usually found in the cereal aisle.

What we’re lookin’ for can usually be found in the Asian section of your local food store. Arroy makes a coconut milk that’s like a thick cream. This is perfect!
