Oh, hai Overnight Oat Week Day #5. You’re lookin’ mighty fine. I’ve been a sucker for blueberries lately. It’s been my favorite berry for the past few months…even over strawbs! I can’t wait until it’s the dead of summer and the blueberries are bigger than my face. YAS.
Speaking of summer. Anyone have major summer plans this year? I feel like my calendar is filling up for June-Sept and it’s only April. I’ve got lots of trips to Milwaukee on the books, a few to Chicago, up north, and 4 weddings. Weeee summertime can not come soon enough.
This recipe is pure summer to me. Let’s look at the lineup of ingredients…
The lemon zest you guys.
We tested this recipe a couple of times and….
THE LEMON ZEST YOU GUYS.
Don’t skimp on it. It really makes the recipe sooooo tasty.
Plus then you get to play with your zester (which apparently isn’t a word because there is a red squiggle underneath it).
- 1 cup rolled oats
- ½ cup blueberries, mashed with a fork
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon of lemon zest (+ more for topping!)
- pinch of salt
- ½ cup vanilla Greek yogurt
- ¾ cup almond milk, unsweetened
- First, mash ½ cup of blueberries in a large bowl. Then add the rest of the wet ingredients and mix until smooth.
- Add in dry ingredients and mix again.
- Place in the refrigerator, covered, for at least 2 hours or overnight. Serve cold.
- Top with granola, lemon zest, and fresh blueberries.
**It should stay good refrigerated for up to 3-4 days.
**Depending on how thick you like your overnight oats, you may add a splash of almond milk before serving.

We suggest topping this oatmeal with a sprinkle of your favorite granola so that you get that blueberry muffin crumble. Don’t forget about more bloobs and FRESH LEMON ZEST. Did I mention the lemon zest?
