So now that I have introduced you all to the wonderful invention that is overnight oats…here is another delicious recipe! As much as I love the peanut butter, chocolate, and banana oats, I do occasionally try to switch things up. I had just bought some fresh strawberries, so I decided to mix those with a banana and then add a tropical coconut twist. Almond Breeze’s Almond Coconut Milk was the perfect addition! Everyone knows my obsession with coconut, so when I first saw this milk at the store I had to try it. It’s like drinking a delicious coconut beverage, minus the beach (although I wish there was a beach involved). It’s delicious on its own but it also made these oats so yummy! I added shredded coconut as well, because you can’t have too much coconut, and I gobbled it right up. I also added some ground flax seed for a nice boost of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. Quick, easy, delicious, and it kept me full all morning – the perfect breakfast!
Coconut Strawberry Banana Overnight Oats
- 1/2 cup whole wheat old fashioned oats
- 1/4 cup Unsweetened Almond Coconut Almond Breeze
- 1/4 cup yogurt (I use plain Greek)
- 1 tbsp ground flax seed
- 1 small banana
- 1/3 cup sliced strawberries
- 1/8 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
- 1 tsp pure maple syrup (or another preferred sweetener)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp cinnamon
1.) In a small bowl or Tupperware, mash the banana. Add the rest of the ingredients, stir, and cover. It will be slightly watery, don’t panic! Place in the refrigerator overnight.
2.) In the morning, uncover the bowl, grab a spoon, and enjoy!
