Classic overnight oats (from Canada's food guide)
A fantastic grab-and-go breakfast that is easy and incredibly versatile.
Prep time: 8 min
Cook time: 0 min
85 mL (1⁄3 cup) lower fat plain yogurt
85 mL (1⁄3 cup) large flake oats
85 mL (1⁄3 cup) lower fat milk, unsweetened fortified soy beverage or water
125 mL (1⁄2 cup) frozen strawberries
2 mL (1⁄2 tsp) cinnamon
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together all ingredients (except strawberries). Spoon into a jar or container with a tight-fitting lid.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, but preferably overnight before eating. Top with strawberries when ready to serve.
Eat overnight oats cold or warm. If you prefer them warm, heat up in the microwave before eating.
Stir in more milk, unsweetened fortified soy plant-based beverage or water before eating if you prefer a looser consistency.
Switch it up! Use your favorite seasonal fruit instead of frozen strawberries. In the summer, try peaches, plums, or blueberries.
Little chefs can help mix the ingredients.
