How to store blueberry oatmeal porridge?
Blueberry oatmeal can be enjoyed warm or chilled as you like.
As the oatmeal sits for longer time, it can thicken so you may add more milk, almond milk or water as you desire, to adjust the consistency of your oatmeal.
To store the oatmeal for longer time, once the oatmeal cools down to room temperature, just transfer the oatmeal to air tight containers and store in the refrigerator.
The blueberry oatmeal will stay fresh in the refrigerator for a couple of days, if stored properly.
To store for even longer time, prepared oatmeal may be stored in the freezer. You can get more information on freezing oatmeal here.
