seriously, pinterest.

Have you heard of the latest trend in breakfast???
Summer Porridge! Now, before you go all "no thank you, goldilocks" on me... try it.

It will take you 5 minutes to prep the night before. Stick it in the fridge and eat it cold in the morning. My MiL introduced me to this site and we have already tried two of the combos.

The blueberry is my favorite (what can I say? I love cold fruit and I love blueberries, especially since they are on sale right now, 1 pint for $1.50!!)

This easy, no-cook "summer porridge" has makeahead convenience and is packed with nutrition to
get your day off to a healthy start. Make it in individual mason jars (we just used cups and covered them in plastic wrap) for a perfect serving size and an easy grab-and-go breakfast straight from the
fridge (it's eaten cold). Take it along to work or anywhere. Great to serve on a breakfast or
brunch buffet. High in protein, calcium & fiber; low in fat & sugar.
(See original post for detailed instructions & photos plus 5 additional flavor varieties; or, to
leave a comment or question.)
1/4 cup uncooked old fashioned oats
1/3 cup skim milk
1/4 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
1-1/2 teaspoons dried chia seeds (we tried them without the chia seeds and it still tasted good!)
2 teaspoons maple syrup (more or less to taste)
1/4 cup blueberries (or enough to fill jar)

In a half pint (1 cup) jar, add oats, milk, yogurt, chia seeds, and maple syrup. Put lid on jar
and shake until well combined. Remove lid, add blueberries and stir until mixed throughout.
Return lid to jar and refrigerate overnight or up to 2 days. Eat chilled.

Weight Watchers PointsPlus: 6 points (5 points if maple syrup reduced to 1 teaspoon)

  1. That looks delicious! I'm gonna try this soon!

  2. I still need to convert to the greek yogurt love bunch...but until then, this does look quite yummy!! (:

  3. YUM! greek yogurt is only yummy if you flavor it with other things. this looks like it will fit the bill.
