Love make-ahead overnight oats?

I’m a big fan of this easy and convenient blueberry lemon chia seed recipe because it’s delicious and versatile!

In case you haven’t tried them, overnight oats, or soaked oatmeal, is made by soaking oatmeal in milk overnight. It creates a yummy, almost pudding-like breakfast that can be topped with any fresh fruit or desired toppings. I eat mine right out of the fridge, but you can set it out on the counter for a while, or warm it up if desired.

Make a little or make a lot!

If you have a large family, you can make multiple batches of soaked oats in a larger bowl and spoon out into cups or smaller bowls to serve. Just use the ratio of about 1/2 cup rolled oats to about 3/4 cup milk, depending on how thick you’d like the consistency. I use almond milk, but any milk of your choice will work!

Looks fancy, but it’s so easy to make!

I recently tried a blueberry chia seed overnight oats served parfait style at a fancy brunch restaurant and wanted to re-create it. Turns out it’s super easy to make at home! The chia seeds add a nice, almost tapioca-like texture when soaked overnight, in addition to added protein. Adding a little lemon zest really brightens the overall taste, too!

Tastes like a lemon blueberry muffin!

We really enjoyed this tasty flavor combo and it’s a wonderful addition to our breakfast rotation. Perfect to use up summer blueberries, and I love the no-cook, make-ahead aspect of overnight oats. Hooray for simple, filling, and delicious breakfast options!

    I love oatmeal but hate milk. Does this have a milky taste at all? That’s what has been keeping me from doing this!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hmm – it’s creamy and thick for sure – but how about cutting milk in half and adding Greek yogurt. I’ve done that as well and it’s YUM!

    Lina, do you warm it up or eat it cold out of the fridge?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I eat mine right out of the fridge, but you can set it out on the counter for a while, or warm it up if desired.

    Great idea for chia seeds. I usually do 1/4 cup chia seeds to one cup unsweetened almond milk and chill and add fresh fruit. I nice little chilled dessert for summer. I like the lemons and blueberries, so I will try this recipe. I also add vanilla but skip additional sweeteners. I’ve lost 18 pounds in about two months on a no added sugar diet. I have ten more pounds to go. It’s nice to wear shorts in the summer!

      That’s awesome! Good for you! Is there a book for this diet?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Congrats! That’s awesome! Thanks for sharing.

    • 50ShadesofLipstick

      Awesome! I’m curious though- how does fruit not count as sugar in that diet?

    I love overnight oats, too! I use half greek yogurt half milk or almond milk and throw in chia, ground flax, and hemp seeds along with dried or fresh fruit. The hemp stays crunchy and pop when chewed which I really like for texture. I never thought to do it as a parfait. I am having company this weekend and plan to do this easy and fancy brunch addition along with a baked cinnamon french toast dish. ( still have to find a recipe for that) Thanks, Lina!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Awesome! I’ll have to check out hemp seeds! Sounds great – enjoy your brunch! Yum.
