Lemon Raspberry and Banana Coconut!
You're going to see a lot of these if you're following my blogs. Overnight oatmeal (or refrigerator oats) are my favourite breakfast "dessert". I rarely ever eat anything else for breakfast since I discovered overnight oatmeal. There's no better way to start your day than with a dessert parfait that's guilt free and full of goodies. Now a lot of people use chia seeds in these and they are on my bucket list. Maybe you'll see them used in the future.
I've literally invented a hundred of these things. Now here's what you do:
The themed ingredients are;
1/3 cup Greek yogurt
1/3 cup Whole grain oats
1/3 cup Almond milk (of course you can use any milk you like)
Sometimes I use a mix of ricotta cheese or cottage cheese and Greek yogurt or different flavours of Greek yogurt.
For the Lemon, Raspberry and Banana Coconut Overnight Oats:
The night before...
1/4 package Sugar-Free Lemon Pudding Powder (I actually haven't seen this kind in Canada, my mom gave me a package that she bought in the States). Add to sealable container.
Add 1/3 cup Almond milk and mix well
Then add your 1/3 cup oats and 1/3 cup Greek yogurt (I believe I used vanilla in this recipe, not necessary).
Mix all the ingredients together. The pudding powder will make it pretty thick so add a little water until it's smooth. You may need to add more the following day. Put in a sealed container in the fridge.
Freeze some raspberries. I have a ton pre measured (50g ea) and pre frozen in my freezer from our raspberry bushes this summer.
In the morning grab 80g of banana. Slice 50g into your overnight oatmeal and blend in. Take the other 30g and slice it in a bowl over the frozen raspberries. Mash with fork, put some muscle into it, until the texture becomes like soft serve. It will look like yummy sherbert!
Take a tall clear glass. Add 1/3 of the overnight oatmeal, then layer a 1/3 of the frozen rasp/banana soft serve. Take a tbsp. of flaked coconut and sprinkle 1/3 onto the soft serve. Repeat 2 more times and enjoy your tangy treat!
