'It is the day before vacation and all through the house, not a blogger was stirring because he was completely checked out.' Do you like my poem? It kinda rhymed. OK, no it didn't. You'll have to forgive me. I'm flying to Hawaii tomorrow, and there are a million things on my to-do list and I don't feel like doing any of them.
However, this No-Cook Overnight Refrigerator Oatmeal is perfect for times like these. It is effortless to prepare, you simply mix the ingredients together the night before and let it sit in the refrigerator until you wake up the next morning. I've been making this for years, it is one of my favorite simple breakfasts, and it is so healthy!
The amount of customization you can do with this recipe is endless. I use rolled oats, however, when I have steel cut or quick cooking oats on hand, those work great too! Also, feel free to substitute your favorite flavor of greek yogurt and flavorings. You don't just have to use fruit, maple syrup & honey are great flavorings as well.
I've used fresh and frozen fruit. When using fresh I typically mash them a little bit to release some juices to incorporate into the yogurt. Frozen fruit is great, not just for its convenience, but because it typically swims in juices as it thaws out.
Blueberries and vanilla are one of my favorite flavor combinations, however, use your imagination to make this recipe your own!
