I hope that all of your one night stands are as uncomplicated as this recipe.
Overnight oats are having their moment. IF you haven't heard of them, they're simply oats that are mixed with almond or cashew or coconut milk, placed in the fridge overnight, and then eaten cold the next day. Genius!
There are so many variations but let's KISS. The base is always the same then I vary my fruit to vary my nutrients:
- 1/4 cup gluten free oats
- 1/8 cup nuts
- 1 cup fruit
- 1/4 cup cashew milk
- Generous dash of cinnamon
- 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 dropper vanilla stevia (optional)
My favorite combinations
- Blueberry and cashews
- Strawberry and almonds
- Mango and walnuts
- Apple and pecans
- Banana and hazelnuts
I usually buy frozen fruit. After throwing out my 75th $6 unripe mango I KNEW there had to be a better way. Enter: frozen fruit. It's generally more ripe than fresh fruit, AND it doesn't go bad. Did I mention it's cheaper too? You're welcome.
I add oats, nuts and cinnamon to a small mason jar and put it in the fridge. This you can prep for 7 days, or really the whole year if you want to. The night before I'm going to eat it I add my frozen fruit so that it doesn't sit for too long and get soggy i.e. gross. I also add my cashew milk and a few drops of stevia.
