Lemon Poppy Seed Overnight Oats
We’ve heard you and we know you love oats! And we are positive these Lemon Poppy Seed Overnight Oats will not disappoint. They are such a bright and creamy start to the day. We love the citrus profile on these, and have been so happy with our almond milk to oats ratio that gives such a creamy and decadent taste.
How Do You Make Overnight Oats?
It’s so super simple to make overnight oats! Simply measure out the oats, milk of choice and additional flavors and place in a mason jar. Give it a shake and close it up and place in the refrigerator. You can leave it to sit overnight, as the name suggests, but really it is ready to consume after about 3 hours.
Do you eat overnight oats hot or cold?
Overnight oats are a great and easy on-the-go breakfast! Grab it out of the fridge, cold or if you really want to heat it up place it in a small pan and warm it up with a little extra almond milk on low heat (or in the microwave if you use one).
What type of oats do you use for overnight oats?
We recommend using gluten-free rolled oats for this recipe. You can use quick oats, but they might have a slightly softer texture when compared to old-fashioned rolled oats.
How long can you keep overnight oats in the refrigerator?
I keep my overnight oats for up to 3 days in the refrigerator. If it has fresh fruit it will keep for 1 day.
