Go ahead and hit that snooze button. If you’ve taken a few minutes to prepare these Vanilla Peach Overnight Oats, breakfast will already be made, which gives you at least five extra minutes to linger in dreamland.
Overnight oats are one of the simplest make-ahead breakfasts. No cooking is required and you can make one serving, or several, in about the same amount of time. So, why not prep a few jars at once and have breakfast in the bag for the whole week?
For this sweet and simple Vanilla Peach Overnight Oats recipe, simply fill a pint-sized Mason jar (or small bowl) with old-fashioned rolled oats, Vanilla Shakeology, water, a touch of vanilla extract for even more vanilla flavor, and slices of fresh (or frozen) peach. Seal the jar and place it in the fridge overnight. In the morning, the oats will be soft and ready to eat. We like our overnight oats straight out of the fridge, but they can also be heated in a microwave.
We use old-fashioned rolled oats in this recipe because they keep their shape nicely and get soft but not mushy. They also give this breakfast a hefty serving of fiber, which keeps your digestive tract in business and helps you feel fuller longer.
You can vary the flavor by using different fruits and flavors of Shakeology, or by adding spices like cinnamon and ginger. Swap out the vanilla extract for other natural extracts like coconut or almond. Want to make your morning a little more decadent? Add a couple of teaspoons of peanut or almond butter!
This chilled oatmeal recipe is a real treat in summertime, when it’s already hot outside by breakfast. Grab a jar and a spoon and start your day with a hearty breakfast that tastes so good you’ll forget how nutritious it is. With 23 grams of protein, these overnight oats are also smart snack before or after a workout.
