refrigerator oatmeal

DSC01860 I've been seeing this on the web lately and had to give it a try, I adapted this recipe.

Here's what I did:

Refrigerator Oatmeal : 1 serving adapted from "The Yummy Life"

1/4 cup old fashioned oats
1/3 cup chocolate coconut milk
1/4 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon ground flax seed

Topping: 1 apple banana, sliced

DSC01857 NOTES: I used this brand of "milk", it is really good, or as the label says "so delicious".

Since the milk was already sweetened, I didn't add any honey or any other sweetener to my oatmeal.

I didn't have rolled oats and just used old fashioned oats.

For winter months, warm/hot oatmeal is nice, but for summer this version is good!

DSC01825 I'm making this again using this Almond Coconut milk (which a reader, Marisa, told me was good)...you know it's gonna be just as good!

Where are you buying all these nut milks? I checked the link and like the idea of making these in small mason jars for on-the-run breakfasts or a quick snack (ooooh, like after a brief hike!).

I'm finding them at Down to Earth, Rowena, a health food store. Hope you like this if you try it :)

Take care you two.
