Peach Banana Smoothie

I make smoothies just about every morning. This is one of those mornings where the measurements were just right and I was like, “remember to make that one again.” Now if I could become a better photographer…

My first time making Overnight Oats

I’ve been reading a blog called Kath Eats Real Food like it’s a book. At first I started from her current posts and read backwards but after awhile I decided to go back to January 2012 and read forward. Still only in June 2012 after a couple of days of reading!

After viewing what seemed like hundreds of pictures of her breakfasts I had to try overnight oats. She starts with a basic recipe and always adds different fruits and nut butters and cereal or granola for crunch. Sound good??!

Overnight oats with nectarines

I topped my oats with sliced nectarines, a little cherry granola crumble (more on that later) and a spoonful of sunbutter. Delish!! Chewy and crunchy and sweet from the juicy nectarines. Filling – in a good way. Totally making this again tomorrow!

Overnight Oats

  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup milk (I use either organic skim milk or almond milk)
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 banana, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tablespoon chia seeds
  • pinch salt
  • pinch cinnamon

Method

  • Stir everything together in a bowl (I used a plastic bowl with a fitted lid and tripled the recipe for myself, Travis and Devin). Place in the fridge overnight. In the morning top with something crunchy and something with healthy fats – like a nut butter or sliced almonds.
