Overnight Oats (LID)

Towards the end of this round of the low iodine diet, I used the last of the So Delicious Coconut Creamer and Trader Joe’s Coconut Creamer to make Overnight Oats. I was really happy with the way they turned out. Creamy and filling, but without an overwhelming coconut flavor. I kept mine fairly simple, only added shredded coconut and pecans.  You can customize you overnight oats however you want them. The sky is the limit. You can also make them ahead of time and keep them in the fridge for up to a week. I would suggest adding the fresh fruit right before eating.

Overnight Oats (LID)

1/2 cup rolled (old-fashioned) oats
LID-safe milk or creamer substitute
sweetener of choice, to taste
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Combine the oats, dairy substitute, sweetener, and vanilla in a Mason jar. You can include your add-ins now or wait until you are ready to eat your oats. Stir to combine. Place the lid on the Mason jar and store in the refrigerator for up to a week.
