Swiss Oatmeal: The Perfect Make Ahead Breakfast

Lately our mornings have become more chaotic so in order to rally for these last few months of school it’s time to get back to conquering the am chaos. Good thing I was at BlissDom a couple of weeks ago and discussed all things Milk. Yes, milk is good for you, but I had no idea how perfect it is for starting your day…and making life a little easier. That’s where the idea for this awesome swiss oatmeal recipe came from. Keep reading for more on how to make your mornings easier…

Swiss Oatmeal Recipe

1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats

1/4 cup almond meal (optional)

1 1/2 cups milk

1 1/2 cups vanilla yogurt

dash of cinnamon

fruit of choice (we chose a berry theme with blackberries, raspberries and strawberries)

The night before combing the oats and almond meal with the milk and yogurt, cover and place in the fridge. In the morning sprinkle a bit of cinnamon, spoon into bowls and top with fruit (it is served cold). Serves 4.

It may seem crazy, but this recipe IS that simple and both of my kids cannot get enough (they had a bowl as an afternoon snack also!). They both had a glass of milk to go along with. As a mom, I’m very happy about the success of our morning – a healthy breakfast together without me running around cooking like mad woman. I was even left with enough time to put on mascara before the drop off, now if only I could look like the new milk mustache woman.

*Thank you Milk for the adorable pi’s bowl and spoon straw!
