If you’re looking for a fast and easy “breakfast to-go” or a great snack I encourage you to try Overnight Oats:
WHAT YOU NEED:
- 1/4 cup oats (quick oats work the best but you could use old fashioned or steel cut if you’d like)
- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 3/4 cup plain Greek Yogurt
- 1/2 TBS chia seeds
- 1/2 cup berries (fresh or frozen)
- 1 TBS of honey!
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
Mix all ingredients together, let sit in the fridge at least 8 hours, give a big stir and ENJOY! I know it doesn’t look as appetizing as the “before” picture above but don’t let that fool you – its delish!
You can prep 3-4 of these at once and have them ready to grab and go later in the week! I also found frozen berries work great because as they thaw in the fridge you get that extra juicy liquid/flavor added to the mix!
Alternatives for all my 21-day fixers:
- 1/4 cup oats 1 Yellow
- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk – see below
- 3/4 cup plain Greek Yogurt – 1 Red
- 1/2 TBS chia seeds – see below
- 1/2 cup berries (fresh or frozen) – 1/2 Purple
- 1 TBS of honey!
As you may know, you can sub out 1 yellow per week for 16oz of almond milk. Given that 1/4 cup is only 2 oz almond milk you could technically have 8 of these to equal 1 yellow. I would try to adjust accordingly but unless I am following the diet very strictly I don’t count the 1/4 cup!
*Autumn came back after the launch of the 21-day fix and indicated that 1/2 cup almond milk would be a freebie
As for the chia seeds – these are not part of the nutrition guide for the 21-day fix. When I am following the 21-day fix guide, I sub ground flax seeds.

Hey Maegan – is honey on the 21 day fix? Should I leave this ingredient out?
Honey is a-okay!!! You can have 1-2 teaspoons of honey 🙂
1tbsp as u have in the recipe = 3tsp so more honey than you should have in a day on 21 day fix – you can have total 1-2tsps of honey, raw sugar and or maple syrup per day
Chia seeds are an orange in the 21 day fix plan!
What else can you use instead of a seed. I’m not supposed to have seeds.
Hi there! You def. don’t have to use the seeds. Would ground flax seed be okay? They’re more of a powder form…not sure how strict you have to be!!!
The seeds to absorb the liquid though so I would reduce the almond milk and just leave them out!!!
What is the container count for the plain oats?
The fix breakdown is 1/4 cup of steel cut oats for 1 yellow. Its about 150 calories. So I typically do 1/2 cup of rolled oats which is also 150 calories for one yellow.
How many servings is this? What color containers does this apply to?
Hi Gabrielle! The containers would depend on what you include! At the bottom of the post I included the equivalents but big picture you’re looking at a yellow for the oats, red for the yogurt and purple for the berries!
