Overnight No-Cook Refrigerator Oatmeal

Awesome idea for quick and healthy breakfasts in the morning! I used 0% Greek yogurt, almond milk, and flaxseed (instead of chia seeds) as substitutes, but you can make them any way you want! Thanks to my wonderful boyfriend for showing this to me! Trust me, he knows breakfast. As in, he’s a breakfast expert/connoisseur 🙂 I love this website too because it shows you how to actually CUT A MANGO INTO CUBES! I don’t know about you, but when I cut mangoes, that sucker slips out of my hands all the time. You can make these ahead and grab them and go every morning. Love!

  • 1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 cup fat-free (0%) Greek yogurt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons flaxseed
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon honey, optional (or substitute any preferred sweetener) **I use Stevia or agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup diced mango (approx. half of a small mango)

** if you make the recipe with the modifications above, it’s going to cut the calories and sugar way down, but not the protein and omega-3 fatty acids (from the flaxseed) So, the weight watchers points will most likely be lower.
