APRIL = OVERNIGHT OATS.

Anyone else with me?

You may not know this, but I eat oatmeal EVERY SINGLE MORNING (unless it’s the weekend). Oats + Banana + PB is my favorite combination. During the warmer months, I like to mix it up and eat Overnight Oats, but soaking my oats in a liquid such as almond milk, Greek yogurt, etc.Overnight oats with toppings

Must-Have Ingredients for Overnight Oats

I like to mix Greek yogurt and almond milk for my liquid. I have found that using rolled oats gives it a much better texture. Chia seeds make everything better and add a healthy dose of Omegas to your meal. If you don’t use sweet almond milk or a flavored yogurt, I suggested a few teaspoons of honey, but that’s just my preference!

This time around. I decided to bring strawberries center stage and puree them with Greek yogurt and almond milk. Almost like a smoothie. When making overnight oats, I also try and keep the 2:1 ratio of liquid to oats.

I am a toppings girl. I love mixing textures. On top of this guy, I added sliced banana, strawberries, and chopped pistachios. I’d say that this recipe serves 3 IF you plan on loading the toppings like I do. If you aren’t a toppings person (do they exist?! That’s the best part)- you could probably just split this recipe down the middle.
