I've got another super lovely overnight oatmeal for you here that has really opened my eyes to even more possibilities with these! Can you tell that I am totally obsessed with having these for breakfast? It's by far my favorite meal of the day now. Just a year ago I was complaining about how much I hated breakfast and now I want to eat it all the time. Since I love variety I just keep coming up with new fabulous ways to eat overnight oats!!
This was the first time that I've soaked my oats in juice instead of a vegan milk and let me tell you what - it is crazy delicious! I didn't think so. If I had stopped to think about it, I might have actually not even tried it because I always said "ew!" when people said they poured juice on their cereal. Well oats are just unprocessed cereal, right? Oh anyway, now I have a whole new world to explore in overnight oat recipe creation!
Oh by the way, that's a blood orange in the pictures! They were actually the oranges that were on sale at the store (though usually they are really overpriced) so it's what I wanted to use. Besides, they are really beautiful, aren't they?
Chocolate Orange Overnight Oats
(one big serving!)
1 cup Chocolate Sweet Potato Pudding (I recommend making double the recipe and always having some ready for you to eat when you get the craving! Of course that is coming from a chocolate pudding addict!)
1/2 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup orange juice (fresh is great but I also LOVE to use Columbia Gorge Organic Juices)
1 Tablespoon chia seeds
1 large orange, peeled and chopped up
If you haven't made your chocolate sweet potato pudding yet then go ahead and get that out of the way first.
Before bed - The mix the rolled oats, orange juice, and chia seeds together in a jar. Cover it and stick it in the fridge.
When you wake up the overnight oats will be nice and thick. Layer them with the chocolate pudding and chopped orange.
