Blended Overnight Oats brings a smoothie-like consistency to this healthy, make-ahead breakfast that's ready to go when you walk out the door
Why Blend Overnight Oats
Well... to be honest, I think blending overnight oats is a handy for those people, like me, who sometimes aren't the best at eating fruits and veggies.
This approach to overnight oats means I can sneak some fruits and even some veggies in breakfast without even noticing it.
If you are a smoothing lover, give this technique a try.
I added a big ol' juicy peach to this version. I also enjoy sneaking in some baby spinach, blueberries, bananas, strawberries, etc.
P.S. I hate cleaning the blender, so you know I really like these if I'm willing to clean the blender.
- Play with the consistency and add-ins until you are happy. This ratio of oats to milk works for me, but if you like it thicker, add more oats. If you like it thinner, add more milk. If you like it sweeter, add more pudding mix or honey. Not enough food for you, then double the recipe.
- To clean your blender easily, fill it halfway with hot water and a spot of dish soap. Put the lid on and process it on the base for a few seconds to easily clean the blender jar.
Ingredients for Blended Overnight Oats
- Old Fashioned Oats--these provide the best texture.
- Milk--I use cow milk, but feel free to use the milk that makes your tummy happy
- Instant Pudding Mix--Other flavors can be used to create a variety, but the chocolate flavor hits its mark in this one.
- Fruits and veggies as desired--I used a juicy peach for this go around.
How to make Blended Overnight Oats
In a blender jar combine the old-fashioned oats, pudding mix, milk, and fruits or veggies of your choice.
Blend until smooth.
Divide into serving sizes that meet your needs in Mason jars and put a lid on the jar. Refrigerate overnight or at least 6 hours.
When ready to eat, just stir well and eat.
Container for Overnight Oats
Oats Substitutions--Old-fashioned oats give a great texture to this breakfast without breaking down too much like quick oats. Uncooked steel-cut oats, conversely, wouldn't get soft enough for me.
Milk Substitutions--I use cow milk at my house, but alternative milk would certainly work just fine here. So go on, use your oat milk, soy milk, coconut milk, goat milk, or almond milk for Tiramisu Overnight Oats.
Variations of Overnight Oats
Sugar-Free--Look for sugar-free pudding mixes to make this recipe lower in calories.
Gluten-free – use a gluten-free certified oats brand.
Yogurt--Add a big spoonful of yogurt to blend in some additional nutrition for your microbiome.
Keep overnight oats in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 3-5 days.
Sure! Just select sugar-free pudding mix and you are ready to go.
Absolutely! If you want to add chia or flax seeds or whatever else you want, try it!
I find them to fit my definition of healthy as they are high in fiber, whole grain, high in minerals and are a good way for me to sneak in some fruits.
