Most of the days I am glad I don’t live at home anymore (because, guess what, I can eat what I want and take my trash out whenever I want and NO ONE will care – ok I guess the trash was not such a good example because the neighbours might, just might, remark at some point, but you know where I am going, right?).
One thing I miss though is…breakfast. Of course my mom wouldn’t make us breakfast all the time but she had these phases were she would try out all this fancy healthy stuff and, of course, as a kid I didn’t appreciate it, but when you grow up you look back and think “hmm, not that stupid after all”. Esecially on busy mornings it can be hard to make yourself a propler breakfast, so why not have someone else make it for you?
These overnight oats are the perfect springy-breakfast treat. Prepped the night before, you can just take them out of the fridge in the morning, jazz them up with some summery fruit and it’s like your mama made them. Of course mom is the best, but effort-wise it’s almost like sitting down for a meal someone else prepared – namely your evening you. That’s the magic of overnight oats.
What do/did you miss most when moving out of home?
With love from the student kitchen,
Basic Magic Milk Overnight Oats
This is what you need
3/4 cup quick oats
3/4 cup milk, non-dairy works too
a few drops vanilla/ pinch of vannila sugar
A handful of fresh fruit
And this is how we do it:
1. The night before: in a container that can be sealed, mix oats, milk and vanilla. Close the container and refridgerate overnight.
2. The next morningChop your fruits into small pieces, either mix them directly into your oats or layer to make it look pretty.
3. Have a great day
