Pretty toppings on basic overnight oats

It's always hard to eat something that looks so pretty, but let's face it, it's always totally worth wrecking the bowl! It may look otherwise, but this bowl is actually extremely easy to prepare.

Overnight oats

My basic recipe for a yummy overnight oatmeal bowl is below:

- Mix 3/4 cup of organic oats with 1 cup of your choice of milk (I always go for a mix of almond and coconut milk). Optional: mix in a scoop of your choice of protein (I always opt for a vanilla flavored whey protein). Leave in the fridge overnight. Add the toppings in the morning.

- If you want to avoid adding the protein, that's totally fine. You can always replace the taste of vanilla protein by mixing in 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. And if you don't like the taste of vanilla at all, you can always use your choice of sweetener, like honey, agave syrup or maple syrup (stick to no more than 1 tsp to avoid unnecessary sugar). You can also spice things up a little and add 1/4 tsp cinnamon if you like the flavor!

For this bowl, I chose to top it off with pomegranate seeds, chia seeds, blueberries, banana slices, and walnuts. Oh yes, and how can I forget the pretty mango stars (which can be done using any star cookie cutter, or, if you're like me and lacking in the fancy-kitchenware department, you can always use kitchen scissors or a small sharp knife)!

Nothing like this bowl of goodness to fire up your day!
