Overnight Oats With Coconut Milk

I wasn't always a fan of overnight oats. I just didn't get the hype. When I was pregnant with Nola I made a big batch of overnight oats a few days after I brought her home from the hospital and never finished them. I tried to eat one of the jars I'd prepared but it was gross. I used to view this breakfast dish as nothing more than cold, chewy mush, but everything changed when I tried a whipped coconut chia seed pudding in a postpartum meal kit this time around from Chiyo.

It was absolutely delicious. The coconut had this airy texture to it and it was just the right amount of sweet. It inspired me to experiment with making something similar but heartier, resulting in a recipe that has become a staple in my morning routine.

Here's why these Coconut Overnight Oats are a game-changer for the busy woman on the go:

1. Quick and Convenient: As a mom, I know the value of a quick and convenient breakfast. These oats can be prepared the night before, saving you precious time in the morning. Just grab and go!

2. Nutrient-Rich and Filling: Packed with the goodness of oats, chia seeds, and coconut milk, this breakfast is a nutrient powerhouse. Oats provide lasting energy, chia seeds offer a dose of omega-3 fatty acids, and coconut milk adds a rich creaminess that keeps you satisfied until your next meal.

3. Customizable Wow Factor: The beauty of this recipe lies in its versatility. Top your coconut overnight oats with an array of delicious toppings to elevate the wow factor. Fresh berries, sliced bananas, a sprinkle of nuts, or a drizzle of honey – the possibilities are endless.

4. Postpartum-Friendly: For all the new moms out there, these Coconut Overnight Oats are a fantastic addition to your postpartum meal plan. Oats are known galactagogues, meaning they may help promote lactation and support breastfeeding moms. So, not only are they delicious, but they can also provide a boost for new moms.

Say goodbye to bland, uninspiring breakfasts and give these Coconut Overnight Oats a try. They're a testament to the transformative power of a well-balanced and delicious morning meal.
