Overnight Oats Three Ways

Here at PIP we’re always looking for ways to incorporate more fresh produce throughout the day, and breakfast is no exception. You know we’re fans of smoothies for making good use of an abundance of fruits and vegetables, but there are so many ways to freshen up the first meal of the day! You can top nut butter toast with smashed berries, fold greens into scrambled eggs, or stir just about any type of fruit into hot or cold cereal.

Lately we’re craving simple, no-cook breakfast options that fuel us up for these long summer days. Overnight oats check all the boxes and the flavor possibilities are endless. The best part? You can whip up a batch on Sunday and divide it into single-serving jars for grab-and-go breakfasts for the week. We’re sharing a simple and flexible formula for basic overnight oats, plus three different varieties to showcase the best of our PIP deliveries this week, including our new Perfect Pantry and Perfectly Cleveland boxes!

Overnight Oats Formula (makes one serving)

½ cup rolled oats

¾ cup milk or non-dairy beverage

¼ cup plain yogurt

1 teaspoon chia seeds, optional

1-2 teaspoons maple syrup or honey, optional

Combine all ingredients in a jar or bowl. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours, or overnight. Enjoy cold, or warm it up! Feel free to add additional milk or yogurt in the morning if you prefer creamier oats. Top with your favorite mix-ins, like fresh or dried fruit, cinnamon, and chopped nuts or seeds.

Tropical Overnight Oats

Your travel plans may have been canceled but these oats will whisk you away to the beach, even if just for a few moments. We’re stirring Perfect Pantry shredded coconut and this week’s pineapple, mango and banana into these creamy, vacation-inspired oats.

In a jar or bowl, combine:

½ cup oats

½ cup milk or non-dairy beverage

¼ cup light canned coconut milk

1 tablespoon shredded unsweetened coconut

1 teaspoon maple syrup

¼ cup chopped Perfectly Imperfect mango

¼ cup chopped Perfectly Imperfect pineapple

Cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, stir the oats and top with more pineapple, mango and sliced Perfectly Imperfect bananas.

Superfood Overnight Oats

Who says you can’t eat chocolate for breakfast? We’re replacing some of the rolled oats with Perfect Pantry muesli, stirring in some cacao, and topping things off with pomegranate arils and blackberries from this week’s haul for the ultimate antioxidant-rich breakfast.

In a jar or bowl, combine:

¼ cup oats

¼ cup muesli

¾ cup milk or non-dairy beverage

¼ cup plain Greek yogurt

1 tablespoon cacao (or cocoa powder)

1 teaspoon chia seeds

1-2 teaspoons maple syrup

Cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, stir in 2 tablespoons Perfectly Imperfect pomegranate arils and 5-6 Perfectly Imperfect blackberries. Top with cacao nibs, if desired.

Peach Crisp Overnight Oats

Nothing says summer like peaches. Warm spices, fresh PIP peaches and Witzi’s Raw Granola (from the Perfectly Cleveland box!) elevate basic overnight oats into a dessert-for-breakfast situation you’ll be craving throughout the season.

In a jar or bowl, combine:

½ cup oats

¾ cup milk or non-dairy beverage

¼ cup plain Greek yogurt

1 teaspoon chia seeds

⅛ - ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

⅛ teaspoon ground ginger

1-2 teaspoons maple syrup

½ Perfectly Imperfect peach, diced

Cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, stir in the remaining half of the peach, chopped. Top with additional Greek yogurt, if desired, and granola.
