Overnight oatmeal is one of the many trends that has been floating around the food blog world. There’s a variation for every season and dietary need. Do a quick search for “overnight oats” and you’ll find many options to choose from. This is a basic adaptation and a good place to start your own experiment! And, with whole, natural foods, it is a great make-ahead breakfast choice!
- 10 mins
- 2 servings
1/2 cup of rolled oats (traditional, not instant)
1 cup of plain yogurt (or, add flavor with your favorite flavor, this recipe uses plain, non-fat)
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 tablespoon Rodelle Pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup strawberries or fruit of choice
1/2 cup milk (any variety, this recipe used 1% organic)
- Mix together all the ingredients and divide into two containers. Refrigerate overnight.
- In the morning, top with additional strawberries and, if desired, a dollop of your favorite nut butter for additional protein. The second serving can go to someone that doesn’t mind running the risk of getting a chia seed stuck in his/her teeth, or can be kept refrigerated for your breakfast the next day. Enjoy and let us know what you think!
Note: This breakfast is not particularly sweet, so feel free to add additional sweetener: Vanilla Paste, stevia, monk fruit, fruit juice instead of milk, extra fruit or a tablespoon of maple syrup are great places to start.
