Berry overnight oats

Adapted from Quaker Oats and Min Kwon

It ain’t pretty, but it’s okay

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup milk or nondairy substitute
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds (optional)
  • 1 cup fresh mixed berries and fruit (in season)

Directions:

  1. Add oats to a glass jar (mason, jam, whatever) and pour in the non/dairy. Layer yogurt, et al. over.
  2. Leave it in the refrigerator (40° F or colder) for 8 hours or overnight.
  3. Enjoy in the morning, add additional liquid if you’d like. Best to eat within 24 hours.

The mixture will keep for up to 2 days. If you don’t add a banana, up to 4 days. Use a one-to-one ratio of raw oats and your choice of milk, yogurt, or any other dairy substitutes. Other suggested toppings: fruit (fresh or dried), nuts, nut butter, seeds, protein powder, granola, coconut, spices, citrus zest and vanilla extract. I didn’t have any chia seeds or berries in my house, alas, so I subbed with my favorite Bonne Maman confiture (jam preserves). Why oh why are healthy fruits and vegetables so expensive. I miss Germany.
