Overnight Oats


7/17/2012

Alright, so this afternoon I’ve begun the process of making “overnight oats” as it has been a slightly popular topic on many healthy breakfast option web-links. (Sorry I forgot to take pictures, I’ll remember next time!)

Here’s the base ingredients for this recipe:

Old-Fashioned Oats
Greek Yogurt (or any ol’ yogurt)
Some kind of milk
Chia seeds (this is optional for additional protein, fiber.. Just a whole slew of healthy stuff!)
I’m making a “Pineapple Coconut Overnight Oats” mixture. Making 2 small jars and letting them sit overnight. Breakfast for the next 2 days! Yay for proactive planning.

Here’s how I made it.

1/2 C. old-fashioned oats
1/4 C. Liberté Pineapple yogurt
1/3 C. light coconut milk – used less milk because regular yogurt is runnier

and that’s it! Put the lid on it, shake’r up and pop it in the fridge!

The Next Day…

And voilà!

Like this idea? I found so many amazing foodie blogs that have a great number of awesome ingredient combos that you can try.
