Old Fashioned Oatmeal with Blueberry Cream Cheese Swirl

Old Fashioned Oatmeal with Blueberry Cream Cheese Swirl
This oatmeal recipe is one that I’ve been making for YEARS, yet never really thought to share it with you.  I wasn’t hiding it or keeping it from you on purpose, I just kind of thought “Eh.  It’s just my everyday typical oatmeal.  These bright people know how to make oatmeal.”
But then I had the idea to add a blueberry cream cheese swirl to the oatmeal and then I tried it and was like “OMG THEY NEED THIS RECIPE.”  This cream cheese swirl is everything, you guys.  It’s sweet, tangy, and bursting with blueberry flavor and takes your oatmeal from here (waist level) to HERE (way above your head level).
Old Fashioned Oatmeal with Blueberry Cream Cheese Swirl
I know the blueberry cream cheese swirl might sound indulgent, but it’s really quite healthy.  It’s made with GO Veggie! Cream Cheese which is dairy, gluten, lactose, and cholesterol free and has less calories and more calcium than regular cream cheese.  The swirl is simply made with fresh blueberries and naturally sweetened with a spoonful of honey.
It’s really super simple, and such a fun way to jazz up your morning oatmeal.  The recipe for oatmeal makes two servings but could easily be halved or doubled, and the recipe for the cream cheese swirl makes more than two servings, but would make it really easy to add to your daily oatmeal, without having to whip up a new batch every morning.  Genius, right?
