There’s no doubt that summer is in full swing around here. Hot, humid weather. Lots of thunderstorms. Grilling almost every day. Lots of time at the lake. It’s definitely summer. And just like the weather and activities change with summer, I find that my appetite changes as well. I’m all about light, filling meals. Even breakfast changes from wanting a hot breakfast to wanting something cool and satisfying. Cool, filling breakfasts that aren’t a bowl of cereal. Enter double chocolate cashew overnight oats. Lots of protein, fiber, and calcium all in one cool, creamy breakfast!
These overnight oats are super simple and make the next morning a breeze. Just stir together your ingredients the night before and grab a jar of oats on your way out the door the next morning! No cooking, toasting, or baking required. And they contain one of my favorite things. . .chocolate.
One of my favorite drinks to have after working out is a glass of non-dairy chocolate milk. So, you know I was excited when I found out that Silk Cashewmilk just came out with vanilla and chocolate versions! With just 90 calories per serving, Chocolate Silk Cashewmilk is perfect for enjoying anytime! Of course, you can do more with it than just drink it plain. You can use it in place of milk in your smoothies or cereal or add it to your overnight oats.
Cashewmilk provides a creamy dairy substitute to these overnight oats. The rich, chocolate flavor gives these oats an indulgent flavor, especially when it’s paired with a sprinkle of mini chocolate chips and chopped cashews. As the oats sit in the chocolate cashewmilk overnight, they get soft and soak up the chocolate flavor. Make a batch for yourself or your whole family so you can get your summer mornings started off right!
