NO COOK OATMEAL SMOOTHIE





NO COOK OATMEAL SMOOTHIE



Step 1. Assemble these ingredients & supplies
  • Old fashioned organic rolled oats (not instant, quick, or steel-cut)
  • Chia seeds; I bought mine at Whole Foods ( available at Sprouts)
  • Half pint mason jars (find them here on Amazon, Wal-Mart or Target)



Step 2.Add ingredients

    • Add Oats 
    • Sweeteners / Flavors 
    • Fruit (see options below)

     Add all ingredients into jars 
     
      
    Step 3.Combine


    Put a lid on the jar and shake to combine. (I use white Plastic lids sized to fit canning jars--they last longer than the metal tops and rims that come with the jars, and they are easier to screw on and off; some Wal-Mart’s carry them, and they're available on Amazon.


    Step 4.Add fruit
    Add fruit and stir gently until combined.



    Step 5. Place in fridge overnight

    Place in the refrigerator overnight and up to 2 days; maybe longer depending on the type and ripeness of the fruit. The non-banana varieties have been good after 4 days for me.

    During the overnight soak the oats and chia seeds absorb the liquid and soften. They have a great eating texture by the next day.

    Here are my six favorite flavor varieties.

    1. Do you just eat these cold from fridge? Or do you warm them up? And I'm assuming you don't blend them up, just eat out of the jar? Thanx :)

      1. No heating - no blending. Stir & eat cold. Delicious!

    2. Help! I followed the recipe for the blueberry and it was a watey, non-thickened mess this morning. Can I add more chia seeds and let it sit in the frig another day?

    4. Good sharing, for healthy purpose, Chia seeds offer the highest volume of Omega-3, as well as addition fiber (soluble and insoluble) along with vitamins or perhaps minerals you don’t usually get whenever you take sea food oil. Chia seeds giving you long lasting energy during the day moving in deep, restful sleep during the night time. May read this article about Chia seeds at:
