Basic Overnight Oats

Recipe: Basic Overnight Oats

A big bowl of oatmeal is a great way to start your day, but who has time to cook a pot of oats every morning? Overnight oats are prepared in advance so all you have to do in the morning is grab a spoon and enjoy!

Oats are rich in filling fiber to keep you satisfied for hours. A combination of soy milk and soy yogurt creates the perfect creamy custard-like consistency and provides protein and calcium, which are essential for beautiful posture, strong nails, and a sparkling smile.

Some of my favorite overnight oats combinations are raspberry almond flax, matcha hemp seed blueberry, and apple pie!

Ingredients:

1⁄2 cup rolled oats
1⁄2 cup unsweetened soy milk
1⁄2 cup unsweetened soy yogurt
1 tablespoon maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)

In a container or jar, stir together oats, milk, yogurt, and maple syrup and refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours.
