So, I’ve been thinking…how would you ladies like it if I did a little Meal Prep Recipe Series??
You know meal prepping is probably one of my most favorite things to do to help me stay on track with my health and fitness goals, and is one of my BIGGEST TIPS for YOU to reach your goals as well.
So I’ve been thinking over the last few weeks (especially as we continue through the #BeachBumChallenge), that a Meal Prep Series may be super helpful to give you ideas and recipes that will make your life easier…what do you think?? Let me know in the comments!
Another HUGE tip I have for reaching your health & fitness goals is breakfast. It is seriously the most important meal of the day — having a fulfilling breakfast is a MUST for feeling your best, looking your best, and performing your best either at work or in your workouts!
One of my favorite breakfasts to prepare during my weekly meal prep is overnight oats. They are a simple and no-hassle way to make a power-packed breakfast to get you through busy weekday mornings.
You know I’ve been working closely with one of my favorite brands, Almond Breeze, over the last few months. Remember that amazing brunch I went to with Almond Breeze & Kerri Walsh Jennings of the USA Women’s Volleyball team? Well, Almond Breeze is the official partner of the USA Volleyball Team, so we have collaborated again for another yummy recipe for YOU.
This time we are bringing you this Cherry Coconut Overnight Oats recipe to you help you perform your best in the morning — or as you may say in Volleyball, serve up your best!! 😉
Overnight oats are seriously the easiest breakfast recipe you could ever make! And there are so many variations you can try too! For these Cherry Coconut Overnight Oats I choose to use Almond Breeze Almondmilk Coconutmilk blend for some extra coconutty flavor — but regular almond milk will work just fine as well!
I also decided to add some chia seeds to the oats for an extra boost of power! Mix that all up in a mason jar with just a touch of honey and splash of vanilla and let it hang out in the refrigerator all night…and BAM! Instant breakfast the following morning!
I even like serving (when I’m not in a huge rush!) in a coconut bowl for some REAL fresh coconut meat and flavor! YUM!
- In a mason jar or small bowl, combine oats, almond milk, Greek yogurt, chia seeds, honey, and vanilla. Stir with a spoon until all the oats have been moistened and the chia seeds have mixed.
- Cover securely with the lid and set in the refrigerator overnight (or for at least 6 hours).
- The next day, open and top with the dried cherries and coconut.
