Greek Yogurt Overnight Oat Recipe

  1. Scoop in dry oats to bottom of the jar. 
  2. Add milk. We don’t love milk, so we add add just a dash to make the oats softer. 
  3. Add Greek yogurt. Yum! Our favorite and makes this breakfast so hardy. I can jam about a ¼ cup of yogurt in there.
  4. Add chia.
  5. Add honey. This is entirely optional, but I add a drizzle of honey on this level.
  6. Top with fruit. The farmer’s markets here in Vermont are going strong. I top the creation off with a dozen or so berries. 
  7. Set in fridge overnight.

These cute treats make mornings so much healthier. Plus, I love that I’m reducing waste by utilizing these sweet jars that can be filled again and again.
