Overnight oats are one of my most favorite on-the-go breakfasts!  They take minutes to prep at night and you’re set  for next morning.  Post workout breakfasts for me consist of Vega green smooties or overnight oats.  I thought I would combine the two this round and it turned out beautifully.  Plus ice cold oats post a super muggy run is heavenly.  Plus topping it with nuts and seeds… count me in!


1/3 cup of rolled oats (I use Bob’s Redmill gluten free rolled oats)
1/3 cup of unsweetened Silk unsweetened cashew milk
1/2 of a sliced banana
1 tablespoon of Vega protein powder (I suggest vanilla/chocolate or mocha)
1 heaping tablespoon of almond or peanut butter (I prefer Justin’s)
1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
A splash of maple syrup

Optional toppings:
Dried fruit
Fresh fruit
Hemps seeds
Chia Seeds
Flaxseed meal


Get a container with a lid and add the milk first. Then add the remaining ingredients. Give it a good stir and taste it.  Adjust the flavors if needed.  Then place in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours.  When ready to serve, top with additional maple syrup, nut butter, nuts, seeds or fruit.  Dig in!
