I just got back from a trip to South America and came home to an empty fridge!! This gave me the perfect excuse to experiment with something I have been wanting to try for a while. Overnight (soaked) Oats!!! Oats are heart healthy carbohydrates, great for the coming season. And having them cold makes them delicious for what’s left of our summers. They soak up the coconut milk, the almond milk, whatever you use.
I made only one jar but tonight I am going to make 4 more (for the rest of the week) with different flavors (cinnamon, berries, mango, yum!)
- 1 8oz Ball jar Ball 8-Ounce Quilted Crystal Jelly Jars with Lids and Bands, Set of 12
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- juice of one lemon
- 1 Tbsp agave or coconut sugar
- 1 Tbsp chia seeds
- Mix all ingredients into the ball jar, mix and refrigerate. That is all. Seriously.
