I was instantly intrigued by the idea of trying an oatmeal dish suited for the hot summer, rather than the traditional, cozy, piping hot, oatmeal bowls that we enjoy on winter days.
I shared a recipe for traditional hot oatmeal last fall:
But, that is normal hot oatmeal.
done that. ;)
This NEW Chilled Summer Oatmeal is
fresh and exciting.
It is also prepared the night before,
making it easy
OVERNIGHT CHILLED SUMMER OATMEAL
(courtesy of my cousin Dawn)
24 oz container of Greek Gods Vanilla Honey Greek yogurt 1 cup rolled oats - NOT quick oats - Quaker Old Fashioned is what I use 3/4 cup milk 1/2 cup of honey 1 tablespoon cinnamon (more or less to taste)
Additional Optional Ingredients 2 tablespoons Chia seeds 3 tablespoons of wheat germ
Directions: Mix all ingredients together and portion in canning jars or any other airtight container. Refrigerate overnight before eating so that the oats will swell and soften.
*For those who are concerned about sugar, you can use plain Greek Yogurt instead of the Vanilla Honey flavor.
Stir it together:
Divide into mason jars or airtight containers and leave in the fridge overnight so the oats will swell and soften.
I top mine in the morning with different fresh berries.
You can also top with nuts or granola,
Classic berries and oats,
you can't go wrong.
Big stretches and
ready for breakfast the next morning!
This chilled summer oatmeal is absolutely YUM and OH so fresh.
It has a custard-like texture, and tastes like dessert.
So many berries, I even dropped some in our orange juice.
When breakfast is prepped the night before,
it allows a bit more time to enjoy the moments in the morning.
