And what better way to start off your week then with a big bowl of Yummy tropical flavors!
Cause the flavors of the tropics…aka..Pina Colada, just remind me of Happy thoughts 🙂
Such as lounging on a beach or out by the pool.
As long as I can remember they have always been one of my favorite Frou-Frou drinks as my hubbie likes to call them.
But to be honest I haven’t had one in years and thought it would be fun to create all the same flavors in this Slow Cooker Pina Colada Oatmeal.
So if you’re a fan of the flavors of Pina Colada or even the tropics give this one a try.
And let me tell you this will also make your house smell AMAZ-ing.
Waking up to the aroma of the tropics in your kitchen is something I definitely would recommend.
Well other then actually being there absorbing all the wonderful vitamin D’s and sipping on a cool tropical drink.
Okay, can I be there now! Haha!
But then again, waking up to breakfast READY to go is always a win win in my opinion. So we’ll just roll with that one.
Especially since I don’t see a tropical vacation in the near future.
And that’s seriously okay cause I’m really good with creating my own paradise right here in my kitchen with a big bowl of this Slow Cooker Pina Colada Oatmeal.
