  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate almond milk - (enough to cover oats)
  • 1/4 cup frozen dark cherries
  • 1/4 cup mixed berries
  • 2 tbsp plain almond yogurt (or vanilla yogurt)
  • 1 tsp Mixed berry spread (optional)
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • cinnamon to garnish

Let's get into it

  1. place oats in a clean jar
  2. pour in milk and coco powder. stir to mix
  3. top with frozen fruit followed by dollop of yogurt then berry spread.
  4. kiss with cinnamon, sprinkle any garnish such as chia seeds hemp seeds, etc if using.
  5. put the lid on the jar and let chill over night.
  6. The next morning, thoroughly stir everything together before eating and enjoy! Please share with us your creation on Instagram!

Tips & Thangs

- use rolled oats, not instant (it'll mush)

- switch up the fruits and toppings to your liking

- you can top with coconut shavings, mixed nuts, dry fruits, play around!

- store in the fridge up to 3 days.

Meal prep tip* make enough for 3 days and save time every morning!

- instead of milk, try mixing your favourite protein powder with water and use that as the liquid instead. (yay, more protein).

- every Costco is different, but I found the oats and berry spread at my local warehouse.
