Overnight Oats

Serves: 1

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup oats

  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or liquid of your choice)

  • The rest varies varies with your concotion (see recipes on the right)

  • For added protein, add 2 tbsp of Unflavored Great Lakes Gelatin Protein

 Directions:

  1. Step 1: Put oats and liquid of choice into a bowl or jar. The oats to liquid ratio should be 1:1 — example: ½ cup of quick oats and ½ cup of unsweetened almond milk. Fyi: Rolled oats definitely need to be soaked overnight, while quick oats could get you to overnight oats awesomeness in just 30 minutes.

  2. Step 2: Stir in your favorite flavor combinations and sweetener of choice! Ideas listed below but the only limit is your imagination. Idea: mash half of a banana into overnight oats for the creamy-smooth texture and light sweetness. Add something crunchy — like pecans, sunflower seeds, or coconut —texture is everything!

  3. Step 3: Cover and let sit overnight in the refrigerator (or for at least 30 minutes if using quick oats).

  4. Step 4: In the morning, top with more fresh fruit, granola, coconut, a dollop of almond butter (or all of the above!) and dive in!

 

Time saving tip:

You can make several of these ahead of time — they keep well in the refrigerator for a couple of days.
