Chocolatey Overnight Oats

I am all about saving time in the morning before work.  
Overnight oats are prepped the night before, so all I have to do is grab it out of the fridge and I am out the door! Overnight, the oats soak up whatever liquid you combine them with, making it nice and thick in the morning.

There are a variety of ways of making overnight oats.  This time around, I infused my oats with chocolate milk to mix things up.  They turned out to be a delicious way to start out my Tuesday morning.

What you need: 
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
1/2 cup nonfat chocolate milk
Frozen raspberries & flax seeds to sprinkle on top

First, combine oats, milk, & chocolate milk into a bowl.  
Stir together & then sprinkle on your toppings.  
Then, seal the bowl and place in fridge overnight.
In the morning, the oats will have soaked up the chocolate milk and the consistency will be thick and yummy!  Just stir up and eat.
Stirred up and ready to eat!
