* Kirby likes his with almond milk but feel free to use lowfat milk, coconut milk, or rice milk. He also likes it heated for about 15 seconds in the microwave, actually he likes all of his meals warmed.

** chopped fresh fruit can be added in the morning.  If using dried fruit then do add it the night before to give it time to absorb moisture to plump up.
