Amazing Overnight Oats Recipes to Try Right Now

As the saying goes, “Good things come in threes.” And here are several popular trios to prove it: Peter, Paul and Mary; faith, hope and love; red, white and blue; milk, yogurt and oatmeal. Okay, okay, so maybe the last combination is a new one for you. But if you think about it, these three foods are the ingredients which make up the foundation for the trendy breakfast trend known as Overnight Oats.

If you haven’t tried them yet, please let my words inspire you to hop on the Overnight Oats band wagon! With limitless options for combinations, depending on which flavor milk and yogurt you use and which mix-ins are added, overnight oats can appeal to anyone’s taste buds. Not only are they satisfying in terms of taste, but the milk and yogurt contribute protein and the oats contribute fiber, two nutrients which help fill us up and ensure greater satisfaction in terms of curbing hunger.

Oh, and another awesome feature? As the name implies, you prepare them the night before, so all that’s left for you to do in the morning is some last-minute prep. To sum up, and to keep my trio theme going, overnight oats are: tasty, nutritious and time-saving!

With the busy holiday season approaching, consider overnight oats as a go-to breakfast for you and for guests who will be visiting. Nothing says, “I love you,” like the gift of a homemade meal, even if it’s one which is simple to fix. Here are three unique overnight oats recipes, each offering a different flavor profile, to put on the menu:

Manager, Corporate Communications at Midwest Dairy

As a registered dietitian and nutrition spokesperson for Midwest Dairy Council, I work on behalf of dairy farmers to communicate the benefits of dairy nutrition. In addition to Dairy Makes Sense, I am a blogger for The Dairy Report.

I write from the perspective of a working mom who recognizes the challenges families face when sorting out nutrition information and putting healthy foods on the table. Dairy foods like milk, cheese and yogurt - all proven to play a critical role in overall health and development – take center stage in my family’s meal plan. As a runner who always is training for the next big race, I also write from the perspective of an athlete. I understand the important role nutrition plays in fueling an active lifestyle and believe that dairy helps me perform at my best.

My education background may be considered non-traditional in the field of dietetics. I have an undergraduate degree in journalism. After graduation I decided to go back to school to study nutrition and become a dietitian. I joined the Midwest Dairy staff eight years ago. Before that, I worked as a hospital dietitian and a weight management coach.

I'm originally from Pennsylvania, but Kansas has been my home now for more than ten years. Favorite pastimes include traveling east to visit family, cooking, and doing anything outside - especially distance running or chasing after my nine year-old son.
