When I saw this blog about overnight oatmeal I loved the idea and decided to try it for myself! How great would it be to make a whole bunch of oatmeals and throw them in the fridge? Breakfast for the week! Plus its SUPER healthy. For mine I did oats, greek yogurt (non-fat, no sugar), chia seeds, almond extract, maple syrup, almond milk and black berries! Doesn’t that sound amazing? And it was so easy. I made 4 to start off (one with blueberries for my dad). It took me 5 minutes. Literally. And now they’re all in the fridge ready for breakfast tomorrow. EASY!
Here’s my recipe.
Make in a cute little mason jar or small Tupperware (this makes single serve portions)
1/4 C Oats
1/3 C Coconut Milk (Could use any type of milk)
1/4 C Greek Yogurt (I used non-fat, plain)
1 T Chia seeds
1 t almond extract
1 T maple syrup (Could use agave or honey or sugar)
Fruit (I used blackberries and blueberries)
Put the oats, milk, yogurt, extract, chia seeds, and maple syrup in your container. Cover and shake until mixed. Top with the fruit. Cover. Refrigerate overnight. Enjoy!
You can make so many different versions of this. Try different milk, sweeteners, fruit, etc. A lot of times I will add cinnamon or a little brown sugar. It’s great with bananas and strawberries. You can add a little nut butter. It’s great to be creative and try lots of different combinations! I’d love to hear some of your favorites!
