I've made it before, but I guess I just wasn't putting the right stuff in before. Tonight I decided I would give it another go. I mean before they were in regular plain-jane bowls, but this time I put it in a Mason jar and I mean once something is in a Mason jar it must be cool right (haha)?
So I made sure not to put too much of everything in it this is what I used:
- 1/3 cup of rolled oats
- 1/2 cup (approximate) of Vanilla Almond Milk
- 1 tablespoon of Chia seeds
- 1/2 of a small banana
- 1/2 of a kiwi
- 1 handful of raspberries
- 3 sliced up strawberries
- A sprinkle of splenda
And it turned out soo good ( I mean I'm writing this the night before so I haven't actually finished it) but.. well it just looked so good I couldn't help but give it a small taste test 'just in case'. At first when there was only the oats and the milk I realized how little it would make. It filled up my jar maybe 1/3 of the way and I mean, it just looked really sad. Thankful when you finish putting in all the fruits and stuff it evens out and it fills up pretty nicely. Heh, I had to take a photo when everything was so nicely layered but after I swooshed it right up to see how it would look - and also hope that maybe it will help infuse the taste of fruits better throughout the night.
This is after swirling everything around. And it STILL looked fantastic (or maybe it's just me)
... Chia seeds are so cool.
