Have a Little Fun With Breakfast and Add Halo-Halo to Your Overnight OatsOctober 13, 2017
Overnight oats are definitely the most efficient way to get in tons of nutrients before your day begins. Because assembly happens at night, all you need to do in the morning to get a complete breakfast is to open up a pre-prepped jar, and dive in–heck, it’s so easy, that you can down a whole jar of the stuff on your commute, or while catching up on work emails at your desk. It’s a great way to jumpstart your daily habits without having to sacrifice an hour of sleep in the morning. No more skipping the day’s most important meal, or getting up early to create a meal that will have just as many nutrients as overnight oats does.
If you’ve gotten into the habit of incorporating overnight oats into your routine, there might be a bit of a challenge to create more fun recipes daily. If you want to up your game and evolve past the regular granola-fruits-superfoods combo, then we’ve partnered with Quaker Oats to spice up your jar. Imagine adding all the essential halo-halo elements to your overnight oats, for a seriously delicious AM fixer-upper. This recipe adds ube to the soaking milk, adding instant sweetness and flavor, with the plus of a visual delight once that ube colors up the oats. Layer some saba and macapuno to make it feel as if you’re having dessert for breakfast, and this recipe alone will be worth waking up for.
