Super easy to make and fun for kids to do as well. Letting them pick their healthy toppings is a really great way to get them started in the kitchen and no stove is involved.
1/2 cup of milk or milk substitute such as almond, cashew or coconut milk - your choice
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/3 cup Greek yogurt, optional but highly recommended
1/2 teaspoon Madagascar Vanilla Extract
1/2 teaspoon Apple Pie Spice, British Baling Spice,Pumpkin Pie Spice or Cinnamon
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1/2 banana, mashed, optional
fresh or dried fruit
Add the milk, oats, yogurt, chia seeds and mashed banana and spice blend to a jar or container and give them a good stir. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 5 hours.
In the morning, add additional liquid if you'd like. Once you achieve the desired consistency, top with fruit, nuts, nut butter, seeds, protein powder, granola, coconut or whatever you would like.
The mixture will keep for 2 days with banana in it and 4 without it.
