We love our overnight oats cold, but when you need something to warm you up on a chilly morning, feel free to heat it up first using a microwave. Just set to heat for a minute or two and add more plant-based milk when necessary.
To get the perfect creamy consistency, the rule of thumb is usually equal parts oats to liquid. Ensure that the mixture is well blended and the amount of liquid is enough for the oats to absorb. Otherwise, you will have dry, lumpy oats instead of creamy ones.
If you are after a high-protein breakfast, you can add your favorite protein powder to the mix or mix it with chia seeds.
We do not recommend using steel-cut oats and instant/quick oats because they do not absorb liquid as well.
If you are after saving more bucks, you can replace the dairy-free milk with the same amount of water or use half water and half plant-based milk instead. But keep the coconut cream or full-fat coconut milk for the best results.
Always sterilize your jars or containers before using them. You can do this by submerging them in hot water for a few minutes and letting them air dry. This should include the jar lids too.
