Put all of the ingredients into a pan using only 1 cup of milk to start.
Cook over a medium heat, stirring frequently until the oatmeal reaches the desired consistency. This will take a maximum of 10 minutes. Add a drop more milk if you prefer it a little looser.
Use either homemade coconut milk (made from shredded coconut & water) or one from a carton like Silk or So Delicious I have not tried this with canned coconut milk. It is quite thick so if you do use it you may need to compensate by adding a bit of water too. You may use other non-dairy milk but coconut gives the best flavour and carries on the coconut theme.
I also used coconut sugar to carry on the coconut theme but you could sub this for whatever sugar you have at home.
