I was in the mood for another perfect smoothie… at 5:45 when I got up to meet Jen for yoga. But after an hour driving (roundtrip) and an hour sweating like a beast, I realized laying in savasana that I was starving and needed something more substantial. Oatmeal was on my mind, but I’m just not feeling the steamy breakfast this summer. Did I mention the AC in my car is broken? Mmmhmm.
Solution: cold oats with strawberry blueberry banana soft serve and a glob of peanut butter for protein. My cold oats (also known in the blog world as overnight oats and/or vegan overnight oats AKA VOO) consist of:
1/2 c oats
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1Tbsp ground flax
cinnamon (like, a LOT)
3/4 c almond milk (I have no idea if that’s how much I really pour…)
You can also add maple syrup to the mix, but I’ve been cutting it out of mine and just relying on the sweetness of all the fruit. I use frozen bananas and add other fresh fruits to the soft serve and it gives it a light, airy texture. Delicious. Stew eats this with me each morning and we love it. Today’s banana soft serve was on point.
