Banana Mango Overnight Oats

I actually look forward to waking up in the morning when I know a batch of overnight oats is waiting for me in the fridge! It takes just minutes to assemble and then all you have to do is open the jar, insert a spoon, and dig in. Sometimes I eat half the oats for breakfast and then finish it up for my morning snack. If you have little kids at home, the recipe will probably make enough for two.
Ingredients
  • ⅓ cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • Pinch salt
  • ⅓ cup 1% low-fat milk
  • ⅓ cup low-fat vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon agave or honey
  • ½ cup mixture of finely chopped mango and banana
Instructions
  1. Place the oats, almonds, chia seeds, salt, milk, yogurt, agave, and fruit in a pint-size Mason jar, secure the lid, and shake very well until everything is combined.
  2. Place in the refrigerator overnight and then devour in the morning when the oats and chia seeds are hydrated.
Notes
You can shake up the flavor of this fruity overnight oats recipe by adding a few pinches of ground cinnamon or nutmeg, and you can certainly add any chopped nut; I like to use walnuts and pecans. Add an extra drizzle of agave or honey for more sweetness.
