Also known as overnight oatmeal, this simple, no-cook recipe allows busy families to have a balanced breakfast with foods from three food groups ready to grab and go each morning.
2 cups vanilla low-fat or fat-free Yogurt (any flavor works)2 cups low-fat or fat-free Milk4 cups rolled Oats (or 2 cups steel-cut Oats)2 cups Strawberries, sliced, or Raspberries
Combine ingredients into a large bowl and mix thoroughly. Divide mixture evenly between four containers, cover and refrigerate overnight.The oats will absorb the moisture in the yogurt and milk, softening for a pudding-like consistency.
Use whatever yogurt, fruit, oats or nuts you have on hand. Adjust the amount of milk, oats and fruit to match your personal preferences. Try adding cinnamon, honey, flax, muesli or chia seeds for different flavors and consistency.
