Overnight Oats for Tomorrow’s Desserts
In our efforts to eat healthier, I have found that meals are easy, but desserts are sometimes lacking. It used to be easy to grab a carton of ice cream and have a quick snack. I was looking for a way to have a quick snack prepared ahead of time, but be both tasty and healthy at the same time.
I think these overnight oats desserts fit that bill quite nicely! You can mix this up in the morning for dessert that evening, or mix it tonight for a dessert-type breakfast tomorrow morning. Or, mix it tonight for dessert tomorrow!
It does make a difference when you use quality yogurt. We eat as clean as we can, and this means not using food products with fillers, artificial flavors, and other such icky stuff. The last time I was at Publix, I discovered Liberté® brand yogurts. They were quite affordably priced (and I found a coupon to use!), and came in several yummy-sounding flavors. My favorite is the coconut. No, it’s the caramel. Or is it the coconut? There’s chunks of coconut in it! But, the caramel is so smooth and creamy. Such a toss-up there. Both are TASTY!!!
Liberté® uses whole milk and cream to make their sumptuous yogurt with an indulgently silky texture. The live, active cultures add a layer of deep flavor that is punctuated with bold, real fruit. And as you should expect, they refrain from adding gelatin, sugar substitutes or preservatives.
To make these overnight oats, simply combine oatmeal, chia seeds, yogurt, and milk. Change up the flavors by using different flavors of yogurt. Liberté® has you covered there. Here are the flavors available:
New Méditerranée Cappuccino
Flavors of bold espresso and sweet cream mingle in yogurt harmony.
New Méditerranée Caramel
A sensorial delight, with pure melted caramel tamed by rich milk.
Sweet, aromatic blackberries harmonize with velvety yogurt
Milk and cream deepened with the earthy, nutty flavor of coconut.
Méditerranée French Vanilla
The exotic, heady perfume of our vanilla is anything but “vanilla.”
Whole milk yogurt enlivened with the sharpness of lemon. Bracing but silky.
A twist on a classic. Exceptional fruits for this winsome, summery flavor.
