Breakfast Recipe: Overnight Oats with Turmeric Milk

Breakfast Recipe: Overnight Oats with Turmeric Milk

With many of us rushing through our morning breakfast, it can seem like instant is our only choice when we’re in the mood for oatmeal, but not so fast! With a few simple ingredients and a bit of overnight prep, you can enjoy a quick and easy bowl of oatmeal that blows instant oats out of the water. 

 

Prep Time: 20 Minutes

Servings: 2 

What you need

  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup turmeric milk (See below for recipe) 
  • Stevia or your favorite sweetener (to taste)

 

Toppings 

If you like different toppings, feel free to experiment. Oats are very versatile! We chose these to complement the subtle sweetness and spices of the turmeric milk. 

  • ½ banana
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp nut butter (We prefer almond butter over peanut butter for its greater monounsaturated fat content and higher fiber content vs peanut butter) 
  • 1 tbsp coconut flakes

 

Step 1 

Place rolled oats into a mason jar or other container. 

Step 2

Add turmeric milk while stirring the mixture to ensure the mixture steeps evenly. Check to make sure oats are fully immersed. 

Step 3 

Cover jar/container securely and place in refrigerator overnight, or for at least 6 hours.

Step 4

Enjoy the next morning topped with 1/2 banana, chia seeds, nut butter and coconut flakes.
