NO COOK Oatmeal Snack: (makes 1 serving) 1/2 cup minute oats 1/4 cup Soy milk 1/4 cup Almond Milk Ground cinnamon 10g slivered almonds 50g blueberries (or raspberries, or a mixture of both!) from frozen works GREAT!
To prepare: Mix oats with soy and almond milk and almonds in a reusable container, mix well. Sprinkle with a dash or two of ground cinnamon. Mix again. Top the mixture with the 50g of berries, close container, and refrigerate overnight. In the morning the oatmeal will be saturated with the milk and the berries will be unthawed and this dish is ready to eat!
