Greek Yogurt + Almond Milk + Oats + Fruit = Clean Breakfast on the Go!


I've been seeing this one all over Pinterest and have been pretty skeptical considering it is sometimes called "porridge". I mean, porridge? I think in 2nd grade when we went to school for a day in an 1800's one room school house we had to eat something called "porridge" for lunch after we took turns "churning butter" because that's what kids in 1800s one-room school houses had to eat. But anyway, this is my new go-to breakfast for sure- make it at night in a tupperware, pop a lid on it, put it in the fridge and grab it on the way to work. It kind of tastes like a yogurt parfait- but it's clean and packed with protein and dietary fiber (what up full stomach all morning!).

Here it is:

Servings: 1
Prep Time: 5 mins (+5ish hours of chill time in the fridge overnight)
Cook Time: 0

Ingredients:
  • 1/3 cup fat-free Greek Yogurt*
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened Almond Milk*
  • 1/3 cup old-fashioned oats (can also use steel cut oats)
  • Any toppings you want to mix in! (have fun and switch it up! some ideas: strawberries, honey, blueberries, apples & cinnamon, vanilla, chopped walnuts, maple syrup...you can really do anything with this) 
*If you want your's thicker, add more Greek Yogurt and less Almond Milk. For less thick, less Greek Yogurt and more Almond Milk
 Combine all the ingredients in a tupperware, mix well, and let it chill overnight in the fridge.

all mixed up!

Pop a lid on it and pop it in the fridge over night- grab and go in the morning

These nutrition facts do not include any toppings

  2. Hi I'm stopping by from the WOW link up. This looks yummy! I love overnight oats and make a batch of 5-6 mason jars for the week, assembly line style, as part of my meal prep to have a grab and go breakfast all week :)

    1. Oh wow I was afraid they wouldn't be good if they set for the whole week but I'm definitely going to try making a big batch!

  3. This could become my new breakfast obsession! I tend to go in phases of some gotta-have, easy recipe and this is very close to the oatmeal pancakes I make now, but would save me the time of cooking in the AM (they never taste good pre-made even if I pre-make the batter...). Thanks so much!

  7. You don't have to cook the oatmeal first?

    1. Nope! The oats absorb the milk/yogurt overnight and soften!
