Overnight Oatmeal

This particular recipe came from my dear friend Maddy's Mom. Maddy has been one of my best friends for awhile now and we lived together for 3 years of college. Basically, she's great and her family are some of the most loving people I know.

Not only is Mama-Mixter one all around cool lady... She is a great cook and every time I see her I get at least one new idea for something to whip up. The last time I saw her she shared a recipe for Overnight Oatmeal. This was incredibly easy and delicious.

All you do is throw everything in a jar and stick it in your fridge overnight!

The recipe also allows for some wiggle room. I used almond milk but regular milk, soy milk, or orange juice work too. It calls for strawberries and blueberries but I am sure you could vary those depending on your preference.

Grab it on your way out the door in the morning and you've got one tasty breakfast!

Full Recipe:

Using a tupperware with lid or large bowl, stir together the following (per person):
1/2 c oatmeal
½-1 Tbs chia seed
1 Tbs cinnamon
1/4 c blueberries
1/4 c strawberries, sliced
1/8 c dried cranberries or craisins

Pour enough milk or soy milk (or orange juice!) to cover the entire oatmeal mixture. If using tupperware, put on lid and shake well. If a bowl, stir until thoroughly mixed together and cover with saran. Refrigerate overnight.

Serve with a dollop of yogurt, if you like.
