Blueberry Protein Overnight Oats

Blueberry Protein Overnight Oats

I’ve been hearing about these “overnight oat” things for quite some time, so I finally decided to give them a shot and I am hooked! I love how quick, easy, and versatile they are. They’re also awesome if you don’t always have time to make yourself a breakfast in the morning. You can put basically anything you want in them, but this is one of my favorite concoctions I’ve come up with so far.

Blueberry protein overnight oats

I’m always looking for things to incorporate my protein powder into, because as basically anyone who uses it on a regular basis knows, sometimes drinking it just gets so old. I love putting it into my overnight oats to up the protein content, and there’s not really a need to add any extra sweetener because the protein powder sweetens it up enough. Plus you have protein from your oats and milk, so this makes a great post-workout snack as well.

 

Blueberry Protein Overnight Oats

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 scoop protein powder

Simply combine all ingredients into a bowl or container (I’ve found mason jars to work great), stir well, cover and refrigerate overnight.

Enjoy!

Mango Salsa

Mango Salsa

This was my first time making mango salsa, and I must say I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I’m not a fan of spicy food at all, and while this turned out a little spicy for my taste buds it still has fantastic flavor and I’ll probably modify it in the future to be a bit more mild.

Ingredients:

  • 1 peeled and chopped mango.
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped bell pepper (I used red).
  • 1 chopped green onion.
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro.
  • 1 finely chopped jalapeno.
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice.
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. If you would like a juicier or finer cut salsa you can place everything in a blender or food processor.

Enjoy!
