A blueberry and lemon overnight oats parfait is the perfect way to start your day.
In fact, after you try it, it may be your sole purpose for getting out of bed in the first place.
A few days ago, I was lucky enough to receive a large shipment of yogurt from our amazing friends at Chobani. I flipped with excitement when I received it, and my brain went into overdrive as I started creating a list of recipe ideas in my mind. I can’t wait until y’all see all of the cool things I have planned, and I even have some tasty and guilt free ideas for Valentine’s Day too. Swoooon!
But first let’s start with breakfast.
Like everyone else on the planet, I absolutely adore overnight oats. I know it’s cold outside so most of you want your oats warm, but honestly I don’t have the patience to cook oats in the morning. I don’t want to have to measure and stir and cook or microwave nothing. Aint nobody got time for that.
I need instant gratification in the AM, minions. Only my Keurig and pre-made breakfasts can help me accomplish that.
I first made a batch of pineapple overnight oats using the measurements from a 1,200 calorie diet as my guide thinking that would help me keep the calorie count down since overnight oats do tend to be calorie heavy sometimes. The good news is that they were delicious, but the bad news was that, without even realizing this would be an issue, I switched out the 1/2 cup of old fashioned oats with a 1/2 cup of gluten-free steel cut oats which caused them to be, like, 500 calories because a serving size of the steel cut oats was a 1/4 cup!
My calorie counting was completely screwed that day.
This recipe though? This recipe is an absolute masterpiece.
It’s quick, filling, delicious and, with less than 250 calories per jar, I’d say I nailed it.
Note: Sorry for the lack of photos today. My computer cord decided to break on me last night and the battery died before I could get any editing done, so I have to work on the hubs computer until I can get a new one. Luckily, I uploaded this photo yesterday so at least I have one to show you!
