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.
Check the sweetness, adding more sugar if necessary.
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.
