I love oatmeal, but it’s not something I normally want to eat in the summer months. Inspired by Angela at Oh She Glows, I made Vegan Overnight Oats! And no, I’m not a vegan in practice, I’m just lactose intolerant. The texture is really nice, a little bit chewy, but not at all sticky the way cooked oats are. I use a little bit of light coconut milk, and it makes me think I’m eating ice kachang. It feels like a light breakfast but it’s very satisfying and I like how quick it is.
It was easy, delish, and calorically-speaking, not that bad.
Vegan Overnight Oats
In a bowl, throw together–
1/2 cup dry oatmeal (120 cals)
1/2 cup light coconut milk (70 cals)
1/2 cup unsweetened milk (35 cals)
1 tsp of chia seeds (the new superfood!)
Let sit overnight in the fridge.
The next morning, I added some fresh strawberries. And because I don’t eat “normal” sugar, yes I did add a little bit of artificial sweetener.
