Making breakfast often sucks. Waking up early? Trash. Cooking while half awake? No thanks. Cleaning up afterwards? Even more trash than waking up early, somehow.
But not making breakfast at home can run up a check, either on your wallet or your malnourished body. Oats Overnight hopes to have the solution to all that with their new flavor of overnight oats — vegan chai latte.
The “meal” is a mixture of whole grain oats, chia seeds, flaxseeds, maca root, black tea, and chai spices. It also weighs in with a hardy 20 grams of protein and 80mg of caffeine. So, not only is it your breakfast, it’s also your morning coffee.
All that’s left to do is throw the mix in a cup with a lid, add 8oz of milk (or “mylk,” as Oats Overnight calls it), shake it up, and leave it in the fridge for a couple hours.
Eventually the oats and seeds will soak up the milk and you’ll have an on-the-go breakfast comparable to oatmeal, except it’ll taste like your morning chai latte and give you that needed caffeine buzz. It’s a win-win-win.
