Step one is to make your own nut milk and avoid the fillers and additives that are in store-bought nut milk. Don’t strain! Keep the fiber and add more flavor. Fiber is important because it slows digestion and keeps your insulin from spiking, essential for maintaining a healthy weight.
3 cups spring water + 1 cup organic nuts.
I typically use walnuts or pecans because they’re higher in brain-healthy fats. This time I’m using 1/2 cup walnuts and 1/2 cup pecans.
I either use organic thick-cut oats or organic steel-cut oats because I can’t do mushy food. It just depends on my mood. This time, it’s thick cut.
Add 1 cup of blended homemade nut milk to 1/2 cup oats. This isn’t going to be thick because I like to add chia, flax, hemp, and other seeds to my finished oats. If you like it thicker, just up the oats to 1/3 cup.
You can now choose to add your toppings or dress it up when you’re ready to eat. I’m using 1/2 cup frozen blueberries so I’m adding them now as I want them to de-thaw.
This is enough for 3 days for me. Of course, you can use half portions of these ingredients to space this out over 6 days.
Pop in the fridge until the next day. Enjoy! 😋
