Spring Green Overnight Oats

"Do you like green eggs and ham?"
"I do not like them, Sam-I-am.  I do not like green eggs and ham!"
"Would you like them here or there?"
"I would not like them here or there.  I would not like them anywhere."
"I do so like green eggs and ham!  Thank you! Thank you, Sam-I-am!"

Well, since almost all of my cooking is vegan, today's post is not about eggs or ham.  But don't let that disappoint you!  Today's post IS all about green food...and not just any normally green food either.  Today's post is all about green oatmeal!

Angela from Oh She Glows has done it again!  

After reading her most recent post on the topic of Green Monster Overnight Oats, I was inspired!  

As evidenced on my Recipage, I love to eat oatmeal in the morning...especially if it is cold.  But sometimes my same five to six combinations can get a little stale.  So although I didn't have all of the ingredients on hand to make Angela's Green Monster Overnight Oats, I did have something green (kale!), and knew that I could work with what I had to make a NEW delicious breakfast combination.  I find that adding peanut butter (or in this case, PB2) to almost anything is a good idea, and a little drizzle of honey doesn't hurt either.  In the end, my recipe looked a little bit like this:

1 part Oh She Glows' recipe + 2 parts the ABC blog's creativity = 
1 astonishingly delicious bowl of spring green overnight oats!

Spring Green Overnight Oats
Serves 1

1 handful of kale, stem removed
1 very ripe banana
1 1/2 T ground flax
1 C almond milk
1/2 C water
2 stevia packets
4 T PB2 powder, divided
1/3 C oats
honey, for garnish


  • Blend together the kale, banana, flax, milk, water, stevia, and 2 T PB2.
  • In a medium Tupperware container, add the oats.
  • Pour the green smoothie mixture over the oats, and stir to combine.
  • Allow the oats to thicken in the refrigerator overnight.
  • In the morning, mix the remaining 2 T PB2 with 1 1/2 T water.
  • Garnish your Spring Green Overnight Oats with PB2 and honey!

Hmm...mmmm...good!  Doesn't that bowl of oats just look delicious?!  If you are scared of green foods for breakfast, don't let the color keep you from enjoying one of the BEST bowl of oats I have had in a long time!

Question of the Day:

What is your favorite way to eat your greens?!  ( i.e. In a smoothie?  Along with dinner?  In a casserole?  In your oats?  In a salad?)
