REVIVE Recipe: Goûter’s Overnight Vanilla Oats

DC-based raw vegan company, GOÛTER, has taken over the healthy living/foodie scene one unique tonic at a time. Their mission? To make snacking as healthy, unprocessed, energizing and EASY!

Goûter’s dynamic duo, Steve Mekowski and V Orban, often hear complaints that eating healthy takes too much time. Here’s one of their go-to recipes for breakfast (it’s also great as a snack!) that proves eating healthy can be quick AND easy.

How it REVIVES:

Not only is this recipe for Overnight Vanilla Oats quick and easy, but it’s full of nutrients you’ll need throughout the day.

Chia seeds contain fiber, protein, calcium and omega-3s. The oats give you protein and fiber, and they help reduce hunger cravings.

The RECIPE:

  • 1 bottle GOÛTER Nourish Melk (our signature dairy-free melk made with hemp seeds and dates) – one bottle has about 12 grams of complete protein and is full of omega-3s and 6s
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • Optional: add a pinch of vanilla bean or cinnamon
  • Seasonal fruit to top off
Grab your jar or container and put all the above ingredients (except for the fruit) inside. Whisk briskly for a few minutes then let sit a few minutes. Stir again. Repeat several times so that the chia seeds and oats don’t stick together. Put the lid on and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning or for a snack to bring to work, open up your jar, grab a spoon, taste and give yourself a pat on the back…SUCCESS!  Don’t forget to add some seasonal fruit to top it off.
Make this recipe in the evening (it should take you about 5 minutes to put all the ingredients together in a jar) and when you wake up the next morning…VOILA!
