Hello everyone – I hope you’re doing well. And I hope you are ready for some peaches & cream. Are you indeed?


Our last heatwave was quite brutal. Personally, I don’t like when it’s too hot. The temperature around 20 degrees C is quite comfortable. But I am fine with up to 25 degrees. Indeed, if the air is nice and dry, I can tolerate higher temperatures, too. But humidity? That’s the worst part! For instance, our last heat wave reached over 30 degrees C (actual temperature) with the humidex reaching 40 degrees (and more!) C. Oh yeah, that was brutal, as I said.

How do you survive heat? Lemonade? Water? Infused water? Ice Cream? Perhaps popsicles? Fruit? Watermelons for me, please. In fact, I can easily live on watermelons having it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and in between (As a snack.) It can be just a huge bowl with plain watermelon chucks or sprinkled with feta or a fancy salad. Please stay tuned – I will share some watermelon ideas soon.

However, today we are going to enjoy some succulent peaches. Since the season of peaches isn’t over yet, I really wanted to share this idea.

This Peaches and Cream Oatmeal is so delicious. Creamy, dreamy, and nostalgic. Recently I shared a recipe for Peaches and Cream Crêpes, and actually that idea lead me to making this oatmeal. Yes, I wouldn’t call this version too healthy as it’s more a dessert kind of oatmeal. But we should indulge ourselves every now and then, right? Perfect weekend breakfast or brunch. As always, white chocolate is optional, but it works so well here.

If you like sweet (dessert) oatmeal, I have some lovely ideas on the blog.

    How did you know that I’ve been craving oatmeal, Ben? And I honestly can’t think of a version that I would love any more than peaches and cream.

  2. Michelle says:

    Yeah the heatwaves have been pretty brutal, especially over in Vancouver since it’s usually moderate — man, I’m with you on the watermelon front! I can have it all day, anytime. Blended up with some mint, and I don’t need to eat! (Cuz it’s too hot to!) This peaches and cream oatmeal is definitely signaling the cozy sweaters and autumn vibes — cannot wait for it to cool down!

    I agree with you on the humidity! We had a few really mild pleasant summer weeks and then it got hot, super hot and super humid. And that humidity makes it hard to enjoy the outdoors. And you are spot on, watermelon helps- so do popsicles – and peach crisps with ice cream!
    Speaking of peaches, i love the sound of this tasty oatmeal Ben- love your use of cardamom with peaches- a truly scrumptious breakfast!

    I’m with you on the watermelon, Ben! In fact, I was just telling Laura that we should get another big watermelon before watermelon season is over here. In other news, I’ve been eating peaches and cream oatmeal a couple mornings a week all summer long – delicious! However, I’ve been cheating and using the dried oatmeal packets. I’ve never thought about making my own. That’s about to change!!
