Macho Mango Overnight Oats

GOOD MORNING!! I am bounding with energy because I just had a power breakfast that energized me almost instantly! And guess how long it took me to make it? 0 minutes! Wait 0 minutes? Well that’s partly true. It was overnight oats so all I had to do was pop open my mason jar and dig in!

This recipe is the perfect way to start your day because it’s just the right combination of fruitiness and hearty goodness. If you close your eyes it will make you feel like you are at the beach on a summer morning. And I know that’s just what we all need on these chilly fall days.

No need to worry about feeling guilty after this tasty breakfast because this recipe is gluten and dairy free. WIN. It’s actually a double win because you make this recipe the night before, so if you are in a hurry in the morning, just grab your jar out of the fridge and you are ready to go!

This one is going to make you excited to wake up and eat breakfast. You’ll be jumping out of your bed even before your alarm goes off!

Without further ado here is my Macho Mango Overnight Oats:
