Sweet, cool, creamy oatmeal?

Yes!

Overnight oats are my favorite way to eat oatmeal in the summer. Not only are they an easy and time-saving breakfast– prepared the night before, refrigerated overnight, and ready to eat in the morning!– they are a yummy way to experience a new range of flavors that work better when they’re cold!

Overnight oats can also have an irresistibly thick and creamy texture, and the secret is in the Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt and oatmeal are so good together, and so filling– perfect for breakfast. With that as your base, and with the addition of the bright, juicy flavor of oranges, you have a delicious way to start your morning!
