Ok, so on the next installment of our little Meal Prep Series, shall we?
The very idea of the meal prep series came to me a few weeks ago when I was writing up the post for the Cherry Coconut Overnight Oats I shared, and because overnight oats are the absolute definition of meal prepping — I decided that I would share another that has an amazing summer-y twist!
These Lemon Blueberry Overnight Oats combine fresh lemon with seasonal blueberries for an AH-MAZING summer combo for your on-the-go morning.
This summer has been absolutely insane for me…seriously, with starting the #BeachBumChallenges (you ladies are KILLING it!), going back to teaching Pilates classes part time, and getting to go to some pretty amazing events locally (like my amazing brunch with Almond Breeze!) — I need all the help I can get when it comes to being prepared in the mornings. And prepping some overnight oats has been a lifesaver.
I have mentioned in my little brunch recap that Almond Breeze is a proud partner to the USA Volleyball Team — and since I am a proud partner with Almond Breeze , they have helped me create this little meal prep recipe to help you “serve up your best” <– get it?? SERVE — like volleyball! See I’ve been brushing up on my volleyball skills and knowledge since that brunch! 😉
Corny, I know…but, I tried.
Anyway, my point is that if you have a crazy busy schedule it is SO important that you prepare a filling, nutritious, and delicious breakfast. Something super simple, to take on the go with you — and doesn’t require any time or thought in the morning. It will make everything run much smoother in the mornings, AND help you power through your morning.
Overnight oats are just that — throw everything in a mason jar at night and wake up to a protein-rich, super flavorful breakfast that you just pull out of the fridge and eat!
- 2/3 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup Almond Breeze Hint of Honey Almondmilk OR Vanilla Almond Breeze Almondmilk
- 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
- juice from 1/2 lemon
- 2 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1-2 teaspoons honey or maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup fresh blueberries
- In a mason jar or small bowl, combine oats, almond milk, Greek yogurt, lemon juice, 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 blueberries and enjoy!
What’s your favorite on-the-go breakfast??
