These overnight oats are protein packed, creamy, and not too sweet for the perfect grab and go breakfast.
I am taking any and every suggestion on how to transition a new puppy to new food. WE ARE NOT SLEEPING! Real talk right here…food transitioning leads to hourly poops and sleepless nights.
Paul seems to be dealing with it well. During this whole puppy-raising process, I’m really seeing a whole new side of him. He’s tired, but pretty calm overall, showers the puppy with love all day, even though she keeps him up all night, and is unbelievably patient with me.
I, on the other hand, am a basket case. Not sleeping turns me into a monster that cries over little things like the lights being left on and the softness of my cat’s fur. It’s insane.
While we’re trying to figure out this whole puppy food thing and the best way to split night duty, I’ve found that preparing my breakfast the night before can be a whole lot of help.
That’s where these overnight oats come in. I have a few recipes for overnight oats on this site, but this one is definitely my fav. Seriously, blended strawberries with some vanilla bean and Greek yogurt gives these oats a wonderful fruity flavour that isn’t too sweet. I added some chia seeds as well for thickening (but also because I love them!) and sprinkled some sliced almonds on top for crunch.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did! Sending hugs!
- 1/2 cup milk*
- 1/2 cup plain/vanilla greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup strawberries
- 3/4 cup rolled oats
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1/2 vanilla bean, scraped
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- Sprinkle sea salt
- For serving: fresh sliced strawberries, sliced almonds, raw sugar, etc.
- In a blender or food processor, process the greek yogurt, milk of choice, and strawberries together until smooth. Pour mixture into a small mason jar, or jar of choice. Add in the oats, chia seeds, vanilla, cinnamon, and sea salt. Stir everything together and place the lid on the jar and give the mixture a good shake to combine the ingredients. Place the lid back on the jar and refrigerate overnight.
- In the morning, you can serve oats either right from the jar or in a bowl. Simply serve with a sprinkle of sliced almonds, fresh berries, and some raw sugar, if desired (it is actually sweet enough if you use vanilla yogurt though!)
*I used cashew milk, but any milk is absolutely fine.
