Overnight Oats!

Is this all the rage or what? In all seriousness, I just ran across this in a few blogs and thought I would give it a try! I am working hard on being a morning person, and Overnight Oats seem like a great way to eliminate some of the hustle bustle to my mornings!

The idea is you put the oats together and leave them...overnight in the fridge! I tried mine cold the first two days and think I will heat them up tomorrow! Just to get WILD with it...

I added:
1/2 Cup of oats
1/2 Cup of Soy milk
3/4 a packet of Chocolate Amazing Grass Super Food (!)
A dash of Chia seeds and a
squeeeeze of Raw, Blue agave sweetener!

Mix it up, slice a little of my nearly over-ripe pear into it and stick it in the fridge!

Viola! Over night oats! They were a great consistency and very tasty! I have been experimenting with adding protein powder like Amazing Grass into my regular oats too and I love it!!

Day two was:

1/2 Cup of oats
1/2 Cup of Soy milk
a spoonful of Almond butter
a dash of Chia seeds!

A little more plain but just as good! I think I will opt for adding the fruit morning of next time and cut back on the potential sogginess! The pear was a bit lost!

How do YOU take your Oats /cereal?
