Get ready to wake up to another mouthwatering breakfast -chocolate covered strawberry overnight oats! For breakfast?! Loving this! You're getting fruit, oats, chia, sweet potatoes and a good dose of happiness all in one jar. You can even make these several days in advance so you can just wake up, grab it, run out the door and eat it at work or wherever you're on the way to! I've even eaten it while driving though I don't highly recommend that (I felt distracted!)
If you thought that having a plant strong vegan breakfast would be just boring old bowls of oatmeal or just tofu scrambles you have got to try these out. You're going to be jumping out of bed extra early just to eat it! (Okay, maybe you won't but I'm always excited when I have breakfast waiting for me in the morning.)
Chocolate Covered Strawberry Overnight Oats
one huge serving
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup soy or almond milk (or your favorite non dairy milk)
- 3/4 cup chopped fresh strawberries + another handfull of berries for when you put it together
- 1 Tablespoon Chia Seeds
- a few drops of stevia or your favorite sweetener to taste
- 1 cup of Chocolate Sweet Potato Pudding (recipe here!)
Blend the strawberries and soy milk together with an immersion blender or regular blender. Stir in the oats, chia seeds and sweetener to taste. Put in the fridge and leave it overnight to thicken up.
In the morning layer your bowl or container (I like to use wide mouth mason jars!) with chocolate sweet potato pudding, sliced strawberries and the strawberry overnight oats. Devour! Think what breakfast would be like without the option of having chocolate ... yum!
