Sautéed Peach & Coconut Overnight Oats

There is a delicious mess going on over here and it’s impacting our entire week…

We are making mornings a little easier with a week of overnight oats and quinoa.  These jars are incredibly easy to put together and make mornings a lot more convenient.

Quinoa is packed with protein to keep you full while oats offer a mild and familiar flavor that is perfectly complimented with various fruit combinations.  In the upcoming weeks, I will share more of these recipes but I want to post this one right away so you have a way to use those delicious end-of-season peaches.

Sautéed Peach and Coconut Overnight Oats

Makes 1 jar

Ingredients

  • 1/3 c. gluten-free old-fashioned oats (can substitute with cooked quinoa for a protein boost)
  • 1/2 tsp. coconut oil
  • 1 peach, sliced
  • 1/2 c. coconut milk
  • 1/4 c. shaved, unsweetened coconut
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. chia seeds

Method

Heat the coconut oil in pan and add the sliced peach, sauté until soft.  In a jar, add oats, coconut milk, shaved coconut, salt, cinnamon and chia seeds.  Close the jar and shake to combine then refrigerate overnight.  You can eat this cold or warm it up in the morning.

Detoxifying Key Lime, Rasberry, Pear & Ginger Smoothie

A little bit of sunshine in a glass.

Where did the “oh my gosh it is 70 degrees in January” weather go?  Warm, sunny mornings (especially after the holidays) make for the perfect time to enjoy this detoxifying smoothie.  I especially love the unexpected kick that comes from the ginger coupled with the sweetness of the raspberries and tartness of the lime juice.

Ingredients:

1 Pear

Handful of raspberries

1/2 inch fresh ginger, peeled and grated

Juice from 1 Key Lime (a regular lime will probably work too)

1/4 tsp. vanilla

Pinch of cinnamon and/or cardamom

1/2 c. water

3-4 Ice Cubes

Method: Blend until smooth & enjoy!
