The main flavor in this fruity oatmeal is raspberry since these berries provide a much stronger taste in contrast to the citrus-y blood orange. They are added to the oatmeal immediately in the cooking process, so they break down, flavor the entire porridge, and turn the whole bowl a powerful magenta hue. Most of the blood oranges are used as toppings, making a feast for the eyes and saving the orange segments to be burst with each bite. This would be fantastic topped with flaked coconut, blood orange zest, or a sprinkle of chia seeds.
