Upgrade Your Overnight Oats with Organic Homestyle Nutmilks

If you’re anything like us, there’s barely time for breakfast on busy days — so you need something practical and quick, but no less satisfying. This is where overnight oats really shine. With a little prep time the night before, you can wake up to a meal that fuels your body and kickstarts your day on a good note.

We invited plant-based cook and author of Good Clean FoodLily Kunin, to get creative with our new line of Organic Homestyle Nutmilks. She came back with three overnight oats recipes that definitely do not disappoint. Seriously, good luck picking your favorite.

Each recipe uses a different Organic Homestyle Nutmilk, which gives your oats a thick, creamy texture without any stabilizers or gums.
