Overnight Oats

 

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.

      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!!!

      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.

      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!

      Feel free to email me at maeganblinka@gmail.com if you have any questions!!
