Join Karl in the kitchen as he whips up some overnight oats!
- Vanilla Almond Milk
- Fresh Fruit
Starts with Oats. I like a combination of old fashioned or Rolled oats and the quick cook variety. But, I’m always on the lookout for a more oat-y oat. Steel cut oats sound interesting but they take way too long to soften. Plus texture is more granular.
It’s super simple and not really quantity related. In a plastic, lidded container, Add how ever many oats you’d like? Cover by 1 inch of Vanilla Almond milk. Add a bit of salt. Stir and leave on the counter
Take a small pot, add a couple handful’s of blueberries, add a bit of water, cook on medium heat. When water starts to bubble, the berries will swell and start to pop. Remove from heat, grab a fork and make a quick mash of the berries. Should look like like purple soup. Add the berries to oats, give stir. Should look a little purple-ish. Really just depends on how many blue berries you cook and add to the oats.
Set in the refrigerator overnight
Next morning, give a good stir. Add more almond milk if it looks a little dry. Scoop out what you’d like and add the toppings
Sliced almonds, you can also add these to the overnight portion, but not necessary
Sliced bananas, more fresh blue berries, cherries, peaches etc.
For crunch, some type of fruity granola. Steer clear of the cinnamon or warm spice varieties. They are good, but they’d change the flavor another tiny pinch of sea salt, if you like
I love this. I may need to make another batch tonight!
