So I did make the overnight oats, but made it in the morning with fresh cherries, so that I could have it in the afternoon. Very different from cooked oatmeal, but good - and it'll be fun to come up with more combinations of fruits and spices. It also fits into my exercise and diet plans, so I encourage you to give it a try .
Overnight oats with fresh cherries
This makes one serving.
Take a clean mason jar or Weck jar that will hold 1 and a half cups.
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup milk (you can also use almond or coconut milk)
1/2 teaspoon good vanilla extract
a shake of cinnamon
Stir briefly , then add:
1/2 cup or more fresh pitted cherries (or bananas, or strawberries)
a drizzle of honey
Cover and set in fridge for several hours or overnight.
Off to make some more - it was delicious!
