Protein Overnight Oats Recipes

protein overnight oats recipes

This summer has already been so busy for us, so I was in dire need of quick and healthy meal options for Hudson and I.  I remembered doing protein overnight oats last year, and decided to reinstate that healthy breakfast tradition.  After playing around with several recipes, I’ve decided to share our two favorites with you.   I’m also sharing a charity below that I am a passionate advocate for!

As you can see, both of these recipes call for milk.  I love milk!  Always have, always will.  It is a nutritious start to anyones day, and an 8 OZ glass comes packed with protein and calcium.  All of which a growing body needs.  My son drinks milk every morning and night.  Because it’s summer time, many kids are missing out on those much needed nutrients due to lack of free or reduced price lunches at school.  It’s estimated 22 million kids will be without milk this summer.  

Which is where the Great American Milk Drive steps in.  Currently, 46 million Americans (including 12 million children) receive support from Feeding America®.  The most requested item?  Fresh milk.  Yet it’s the least donated.  So the Great American Milk Drive is attempting to rectify this issue.  If you can donate even $5, a child in need will receive a gallon of milk.  

*If you share this post $1 will be donated to the Great American Milk Drive* 

For each share of Great American Milk Drive “Feed A Childhood” content with hashtag #milkdrive via Facebook and Twitter between 6/1/16 – 6/30/16, The Great American Milk Drive will contribute $1 to the Feeding America® network for the purchase of fluid milk, up to a maximum total donation of $5,000.
