Even though yesterday’s bowl of soaked oats was super delicious, I wanted to see if the over night soak would result in a creamier consistency. I have done the over night thing in the past but since the 20 minute soak was still something that I could recall (mommyhood tends to lessen that ability), I thought that the taste test would be a fine idea. In the bowl last night I combined 3/4 cup oatmeal, 1/2 a cup Vanilla Almond milk and 1/4 cup water. When I took it out of the fridge this morning all the liquid was absorbed and the oats did seem extra creamy.
I added the same combo of yogurt as yesterday – plain Greek and Vanilla – then went on the banana.
The verdict: The oats were indeed MUCH creamier and much more moist. I don’t have a preference over the two, they both were delicious. I’m just happy to have started the day with a yummy bowl of creamy goodness.
It being Thursday D and I heading out. Can you guess where we are going? This has become part of our routine the past few weeks. I’ll reveal the fun later.
Have a great day.
