Thriving Thursday #4: Overnight Oats

Happy Thursday!

We are having a MUCH better week. Tripp actually had a haircut this week and we went to a fun park afterwards. It was a lot of fun! We also went to Target (at a random time, so NO ONE was there… it was awesome!) because I have wanted to see the new Hearth & Hand stuff and we needed a birthday card 🙂 Tripp and I both loved the goat bookends, but decided we could wait a little longer on those. Ya know, since we are in the middle of GETTING RID of stuff. Tripp and I have been taking on small spaces (as in a drawer or cabinet) here and there for cleaning out. Fun stuff 🙂

Anyways. Thriving Thursday!

Single Serving Overnight Oats with Strawberries + Banana 

Featuring a couple of Thrive Life groceries

What you need:

  • 1/2 cup oats (I used THESE, quick cooking oats)
  • 1/2 cup whole milk yogurt
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (unsweetened, plain!)
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds (optional)
  • 1/4 cup Thrive Life strawberries
  • 1/4 cupThrive Life banana slices
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • Drizzle of nut butter when you are ready to eat!

What you do:

  1. Add all ingredients to a mason jar.
  2. Shake.
  3. Stick in the refrigerater for a few hours or overnight.
  4. Enjoy!

You can also find oats through Thrive Life, but they are not certified GF, so I choose not to use those. If you are searching for certified foods withThrive Life, they have a whole section for you! I usually just select it and pick my groceries from there.

If you want your fruit a little crunchy, just add those before you eat. I like the flavors to melt in (and LOVE that I just grab it and EAT!), so I just throw it all in the jar. Perfect for on-the-go or a quiet breakfast item that doesn’t require any noise (i.e. no risk of waking up a sleeping kiddo). Because I am trying to get up earlier than Tripp (usually an already early riser) and enjoy some #wordbeforeworld and coffee.

The base of overnight oats can be found a lot of places online, but the first place I found it was on Kath Eats Real Food. So I have always followed the 1/2 trio 🙂
