Wake up to a tropical vacation with these healthy, gluten free Pina Colada Overnight Oats! They’re only 5 ingredients, ready in 5 mins and 300 calories!
Pina coladas for breakfast.
Because who only wants to reserve them for tropical beach weekends am I right?
If I had to choose one drink to slurp ALLL summer long, it would most defs be the tropical pina colada. (no idea how to get the squiggly line over the n. Just FYI)
I mean, the rum doesn’t hurt either ????
However, as much as we hate being honest with ourselves in the face of things that taste, liiiike, REALLY refreshing and DELICIOUS, the pina colada? NOT SO NUTRITIOUS.
So, naturally it was time to HEALTHIFY IT….and make it breakfast appropriate.
Mostly because I am impatient and don’t want to wait until the evening, when it’s “socially acceptable” to have rum flavored things, and I want it N-O-W. <— Thinkin’ that you understand this logic too.
But, ALSO because I know you guys dig healthy-breakfast-remakes of your most favorite, not-so-good for you eats like cookie dough overnight oats, snickerdoodle vegan overnight oats, funfetti protein overnight oats AND chocolate peanut butter over night oats.
You also dig oatmeal. Which is why I DIG YOU.
#FavoriteFood. <— does having boring-plain-Jane oatmeal be my favorite food somehow make you trust me less as a food blogger?
Don’t answer that.
Instead answer me this: how would you feel about a tropical-taste-bud-vacation that requires O-N-L-Y 5 MINUTES and 5 INGREDIENTS for you to experience?
Pretty great, right?
Then, UHHHH, these overnight oats are a GAME CHANGER when it comes to morning-you’s goals of waking up to healthy, booze-tasting food without having to feel like you would get judged if people ACTUALLY knew what you were planning to eat for breakfast.
Socially acceptable adult morning food, internet friends. It’s what we’re talkin’ ABOUT.
The tradish cocktail is made with coconut cream which, if we HAVE to be honest with ourselves for a hot minute, is PROBABLY a LITTLE too heavy for just-got-out-of-bed you to dive face-first into. This is where the combination of creamy coconut flavored (for extra UMPH) Greek yogurt and LIGHT coconut milk swirl together and SAVE the day.
A little mix-er-oo of the 2 hits the same notes of smooth, lusciously, indulgent-feels of using coconut cream, but in a way that makes you feel A-OK for having it waiting in the refrigerator for your HANGRY morning self.
A tropical vacation for your taste-buds with no missing your flight, no nasty airplane peanuts and NO over-priced bottles of water.
Look at you, savvy, money-saving vacation taker.
