When the kiddos were younger, I was always on a mission to find something they both could eat with minimal prep for the busy morning. Enter Mango Overnight Oats. This was a recipe I tried with the kiddos and it was a success.
Real talk, ahead.
Now by success I mean Elli loved it – straight from the fridge cold. Jackson was able to get it down. #success
He had me warm his up (I can’t blame him, I like a hot breakfast). He wasn’t sure about the chunks of mango but I assured him he loved mangoes so he ate them. Again, it isn’t a party trying to feed him but this was a win in my book.
This really would be a great breakfast for anyone – it is a great post cardio workout breakfast with a wonderful blend of protein and carbs.
Check out how easy it is to prep!
Mix together in jar or some sort of sealed container:
- 1/2 cup uncooked oats
- 2/3 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
- 1/2 cup non fat plain greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup frozen mango
Place in fridge overnight.
You can always add in additional things:
- banana slices
- various berries
- chia seeds (extra fiber!)
- brown sugar on top
This is definitely a go-to for us – serious bang for your buck!
