Ingredients: – 1/2 cup rolled oat – 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or your preferred milk) – 1/4 cup Greek yogurt (optional) – 1 tablespoon chia seed – 1/2 teaspoon honey or a natural sweetener (optional) – Fresh berries (e.g., strawberries, blueberries) for topping – Sliced nuts (e.g., almonds, walnuts) for topping
Instructions: Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients Gather all the ingredients listed above. You can customize your toppings with your favorite fruits and nuts.
Step 2: Combine Oats and Chia Seeds In a mason jar or a container with a lid, add the rolled oats and chia seeds. Chia seeds are a great source of fiber and will help keep you feeling full.
Step 3: Add Liquid Pour the unsweetened almond milk (or your choice of milk) into the container with the oats and chia seeds. You can also add Greek yogurt at this point for added creaminess and protein.
Step 4: Sweeten (Optional) If you'd like some sweetness, you can add a small amount of honey or your preferred natural sweetener. Adjust the sweetness according to your taste.
Step 5: Mix Well Stir the ingredients in the container until everything is well combined. Ensure there are no lumps of oats.
Step 6: Refrigerate Overnight Place the lid on your container and refrigerate it overnight (or for at least 4 hours). During this time, the oats and chia seeds will absorb the liquid and create a creamy, delicious consistency.
Step 7: Add Toppings The next morning, or when you're ready to eat, take your oats out of the refrigerator and add your favorite toppings. Fresh berries and sliced nuts are great choices for added flavor and nutrition.
