Overnight oatmeal seems to be all the rage these days, so I decided to see what all the fuss was about. The recipe I found is from The Pinterest Project (this is a fantastic site – so many great recipes and ideas!) The oatmeal took almost no time to put together and was so yummy! It was so nice to have breakfast taken care of when I woke up. I will be definitely be making these often! Even my kids liked them, and they hate oatmeal! Score one for mom!
Mango Strawberry Banana Overnight Oatmeal – 1 serving
1/4 cup uncooked oatmeal
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
2 teaspoons chopped nuts (I used almonds)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon sugar or honey (I used sugar)
1/4 cup chopped fruit (I used Mangoes, Strawberries and Bananas)
Simply mix all the ingredients together and place in a covered container in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, it’s ready to go!
The total cost for one serving came to $.32 – not a bad price, and it was very filling (Did I mention yummy? These are so good!). My kids liked that they could choose what fruit they wanted to use. I like that too, anything to get them to eat a healthy breakfast!
Have you made anything from Pinterest? What are your quick and healthy breakfast recipes? I’d love to hear from you!
