Acai Overnight Oats

Acai Overnight Oats

Overnight oats may be past trend, but they've become a staple in my house.  Easy for a quick breakfast on the run, tasty for a mid-afternoon snack, but most of all - perfect for the dorm room.

With simple ingredients mixed together the night (or a few nights) prior one can enjoy a healthy and easy breakfast that far supersedes any smooshy oatmeal from the college dining commons.

Acai Powder
We sent Liv off with reusable empty jars, a package of organic oats, a bag of acai powder (we use the Navitas brand) and a few mix-ins.  She laughed at first and said she wasn't going to go through the trouble of putting the overnight oats together, but after a few weeks of dining commons breakfasts she called to asked for the recipe.

Sweetened to your taste, these Acai Oats pack a nutrition and fiber punch and can be tossed in a bag when you're running out the door.

Cheers to a healthy and quick breakfast!

Acai Overnight Oats
Filled with fiber from the oats, chia and acai, these oats fill your belly and bring superfood nutrients along with them.
Liv found the Quattro 8.5 oz jars to be the perfect size for her mornings - we found them on Amazon, but they are also sold at the Container Store.
Liv actually doesn't measure anymore - find a texture that makes you happiest and stick with that.  Experiment with slightly more or less oats or chia for a thicker or thinner blend.

Scant 1/2 cup organic rolled oats
Scant 2 Tbs Chia Seed
1-2 tsp Acai Powder (she likes 1, I like 2 - the powder is not sweet)
3/4 cup + 2 Tbs Almond Milk (May substitute any milk you like)
1 tsp maple syrup (or sweeten to your taste)
chopped walnuts
More maple syrup to serve

Place dry ingredients (oats, chia and acai) into jar.  Cover with the cap and shake to combine.  Add Almond milk and maple syrup, stir to distribute evenly.  Place in the refrigerator overnight.  

In the morning remove from fridge and add a dash more milk and an additional drizzle of syrup if desired.  Top with chopped walnuts or banana.
