This is a discovery! I have to say I was truly amazed. I thought I wasn’t going to like this at all. I love my breakfast oatmeal warm, specially for the cold months, but cold oatmeal? I really thought this was not going to work out for me. But… surprise! I loved it. Now that summer has well made its entrance here in Guatemala, overnight cold oatmeal is welcome into my weekly routine.
The better ingredients you use for the recipe, the best it will taste. For example, make sure you get greek yogurt and really nice cocoa powder (the one you use for baking)… and the best fruit. That makes a ton of difference. Anyway, I set out to prepare these two overnight oatmeal jars on a Saturday afternoon, so I had these on Monday and Tuesday. I would recommend just doing a few days at the time (not the entire week), as we are using dairy products and fruit, they can go bad.
The base is the same: oats, chia seeds, yogurt and milk. You mix those 4 ingredients and you are ready to roll. Add a few other ingredients and you can have your different combos: Piña Colada (honey, coconut, almonds and pineapple), Blueberry (blueberry, lemon zest and vanilla) or Peaches and Cream (peaches, cinnamon, maple syrup and cream). The combination possibilities are endless. Here I went with the safe combos: Strawberry + Chocolate, and Banana + Honey. You can mix and match flavors and fruits… And to get more recipes like this one, visit The Domestic Geek and subscribe to her YouTube channel for more recipes like this one!
