I’ve seen overnight oats all over the internet for as long as I can remember but I always thought to myself, why would anyone want to eat cold oatmeal? That’s just weird. 

Well, my friends, I stand corrected. I finally jumped on the overnight oatmeal train and now I never want to get off. They’re SO good!

Eating cold oats couldn’t be more refreshing now that it’s hot outside. And when you combine them with a little almond milk, yogurt and chia seeds, they take on a delicious creamy texture that tastes incredible paired with fresh peaches.

I have to thank Marcie and Kristine for finally convincing me to give them a try. We were chatting on the plane ride home from the Everything Food Conference and they were both going on and on about how good overnight oats are with chia seeds. I’m not always a fan of the texture of chia seeds but I have to admit they do blend really well with the texture of the oats. Plus I love that they offer up a healthy serving of Omega-3 fatty acids.

I created this Peaches and Cream Chia Seed version in partnership with my friends over at Almond Breeze who are the official almondmilk of Team USA Volleyball this year. They asked me to share something that would help you guys “Serve up Your Best” and I believe these oats are just that. Between all of the protein and fiber from the chia seeds and oats, the probiotics in the yogurt, and the calcium and vitamin D in Almond Breeze’s Almondmilk Coconutmilk Blend, it makes for one powerhouse breakfast!
