 Vegan Overnight Oat Parfait, it has been too long!

On Wednesday night, I went to make a batch of vegan overnight oats before bed and I realized that I was out of almond milk. It was almost midnight and I was so desperate I considered making almond milk from scratch and then Eric convinced me to stop being a crazed lunatic and go to bed.

Sometimes husbands know best.

Thursday morning, I awoke happy and then my heart sank when I realized I did not have any oats waiting for me.

However, the almond milk is now back baby! All is right in the world again.

Cherry-Blueberry Chocolate Vegan Overnight Oat Parfait

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1.5 tbsp vega Chocolate Protein Powder (yum!!!)
  • 1.5 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup cherries, chopped & pitted
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • cacao nibs, for garnish
  • Banana soft serve 

 

Directions: The night before (or 1-2 hours before you want to eat) in a small bowl mix the oats, milk, protein powder, chia seeds, cherries, and blueberries in a bowl. Whisk well to get out clumps. In the morning, remove from fridge and layer in a glass with Banana soft serve (1 frozen banana processed until soft serve forms). Add toppings and enjoy!

What kind of jar is that? I love that you eat VOO from a jar. Makes it more fun!

It was a jam jar (President’s choice blueberry organic I believe!!)

OMG I totally have done that at midnight – been so sad about the lack of almond milk that I end up wanting to make some and my husband tells me I am crazy. I keep unsweetened hemp milk for baking and sometimes break that out in an almond milk emergency. Because hemp milk is more expensive than almond milk, I don’t like to use it on a daily basis – plus I mainly use it for baking because it adds more body than almond milk – but in a VOO emergency, out comes the hemp milk (and the vanilla extract to cover up the hemp flavor LOL). I don’t bake often so the case of 4 hempmilks I order from Amazon takes a while to go through – I think I have two of those right now. Incidentally I tried to keep an emergency quart of almond milk, but I invariably end up using it.

thanks for the tip I will have to use hemp milk in baking!

Valerie @ City|Life|Eats September 3, 2010

Hemp milk rocks for baking. I got the tip from Karina over at Gluten-Free Goddess.

I keep meaning to mention this in a comment – I finally bought Teflex sheets for the dehydrator, and I am so glad I did – they work like a charm. :)

Angela that parfait looks glorious in that little jar!

I love all of the articles you posted — thanks for rounding them up for us!

Lily @ Lily's Health Pad September 3, 2010

I love how the oats spill over the top of the jar.

Btw, How to you eat out of that jar? It looks quite narrow to be using a spoon.

I’ve written a grocery list, and I’m going to bake a couple of your sweet treats this weekend!

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) September 3, 2010

I forgot about the narrowness and i switched to my long spoon from crate & barrel :)

Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman September 3, 2010

You seriously have the coolest jars. I’d probably just plop it all in a bowl and go.

almond milk from scratch is soooo easy! If I can do it in my $19.99 blender, you can totally do it in the Vita :)

(That’s something I would do… ) ;)

looks delicious… I haven’t made VOO for a while…

Maria @ Kale and Cupcakes September 3, 2010

Funny that you mention having no almond milk – I realized last night that I also wouldn’t have any for my chia breakfast pudding this AM. : ( Sometimes I ask the husband to do an almond milk run for me. That’s what husbands are (partially) for, right? : ) Beautiful photos of VOO! Have a great weekend!

Oh!!! My blog is on there!! Yay! Thank you!

I’m such a huge fan of overnight oats. I’m nearly out of almond milk and I always get SO sad when I forget to get more. My boyfriend gave up trying to talk me when I get crazy like that, it’s definitely not pretty.

If I knew how to make almond milk I would probably attempt it. But I can’t keep almonds in the house the boy always eats them all!

Maria @ Oh Healthy Day September 3, 2010

Running out of almond milk is a huge fear of mine. I actually hoard it in my pantry for rainy days and buy it even when I have plenty. Thank goodness it stores well!

I buy it in bulk by the case of 12 :)

I desperately wanna make my breakfast look like yours! Your parfaits always look so delicious! This is one reason I hate having to eat breakfast at work, because I miss out on making something like this :(

I think parfaits will have to become my special weekend treat!! Good thing today’s Friday :)

I totally would have gone to the store for my almond milk. Luckily we have a store which is open really late right down the street, so I would have been all over that (or the husband would have gone on an emergency run for me.) I would have FREAKED!!!

Am I the only nut-bag that cringes every time I see parfait dripping down the side. I know it’s supposed to look overflowing and indulgent, but I just want to go get some papertowels! I might need therapy….

I was feeling the same way about missing my oatmeal last night and decided I was going to make hot oatmeal(because it’s comforting in the rainy weather) in a Pb & J parfait! It definitely hit the spot and was absolutely amazing! :)

You are the only blogger who has ever made me feel tempted to eat oats–yours always look so good!

And Amen to that husband thing. I only have a boyfriend and he is already really smart, so I can’t imagine how wise he will become if we ever get married!
