Breakfast is a very important meal. Getting everyone out the door in the mornings can be a challenge and the last thing I want to do is skip breakfast or pick up an unhealthy option while I am out and about.
Chai Spice combines the flavors of cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves and nutmeg. It is the perfect way to add a boost of flavor to your morning oats.
Overnight Oats are a great addition to the grab & go lifestyle. They are easy to assemble making it easy to prepare 4-5 servings at once. They will keep well in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. This is a huge time saver!
Most recipes just have you add your ingredients to a bowl or jar, stir and place in the fridge overnight. Then the next day, you can add your toppings and get your day started.
Note: Chia seeds have a gritty texture. Use a spice grinder to grind the chia seeds with the oats and spices. This process will to reduce the gritty texture and result in creamy Overnight Oats.
First, add 1/4 cup of Old Fashioned Oats to a spice grinder along with 1-1/2 teaspoons of Chia Seeds and 3/4 teaspoon of Chai Spice. Then pulse the oat mixture in the spice grinder about 12 times until the mixture has a consistency of sand.
Next, transfer the oat mixture from the spice grinder to a small mixing bowl. Add 1/4 cup Non-fat Vanilla Greek Yogurt, 1/3 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk, a pinch of Kosher Salt, 1 packet of Splenda and 1 teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar.
Stir well to combine all the ingredients. The mixture will be very creamy.
Transfer the ingredients to a jar or storage container and place your container in the fridge overnight. The Oats will soften and the Chia Seeds will take on a chewy and gelatinous texture.
In the morning, grab your container and add your favorite toppings. For this recipe, try topping your Overnight Oats with a thin layer of Non-Fat Vanilla Greek Yogurt, 1 teaspoon of No-Sugar Added Peach Preserves and a few Blueberries.
