Banana Softserve Vegan Overnight Oats

Angela is a genius.

VOO are so good and incredible easy to make. I prepped the oat mixture last night, and then layered it with banana soft serve (1 frozen banana done in a food processor) this morning.

Vegan Overnight Oats
(From: OhSheGlows)

- 1/3 cup oats
- 1 cup almond milk (I used unsweetened vanilla almond breeze) - I would also cut this amount to 3/4 cup next time or increase the amount of oats.
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 T chia seeds
- 1 package of Amazing Grass (Chocolate)

Mix all the ingredients with a whisk and refrigerate overnight. In the morning layer it with the banana soft serve (food process a frozen banana).

At work I had about 8 tortilla chips with dip.

Lunch was rice with hot sauce, edamame, and 2 clementines (I didn't eat the apple).

Dinner was salmon, rutabagas, asparagus and a piece of pumpernickel.

Salmon with veggies is one of my favourite summery meals, although it is not feeling very summery. Today was a windy, cold, sleety day.

The current conditions are:

Light Snow
45K/h wind
Feels like -5


Tomorrow is looking even worse. Snow. Not light snow, but SNOW. Barf.

This evening the hubby and I went to our friend's house for a game night. We played a nerdy card game called Bang! I love board games, card games, etc.. I never get sick of them.

What is your favourite board/ card game?

Also, have you ever made rutabagas? What are some other ways to prepare them besides boiling and mashing?

Obviously I love Texas Hold'em but in the spirit of your game night I love playing pinochle and progressive rummy with my family.

I've only had rutabagas boiled but last time I did it was in a risotto.

Those oats look incredible! My favorite card game is probable Uno..just because I have played it with my daddy since I was little. It reminds me of him :) I have no idea what a rutabagas is!!

Ugh, I can't believe it's snowing there. Sorry about that!

Those oats look delish! NEED to try my chia seeds.

I have to try this banana soft serve I keep hearing about. It looks so good. I am a fan of most board games, but love monopoly and clue. For card games, I think crazy 8 is a fun one people often forget to play. For 4, I'd say spades is good.

I've recently re-discovered my love for card games like Canasta and Cribbage. I always think I don't like playing games with people until I do it. And have fun.

I think the reason the brownies I made were so moist is because there's no flour in them. To be honest, if I were to make them again I would probably throw in another T of cocoa powder and just a mere 1/2 cup or so flour because they wee a bit squishy. But so good.

How's C25K?

I never thought about growing peas, and that is a perfect idea! Thank you for the suggestion, I will be sure to added it in my garden.

We are getting tons of snow/sleet in Edmonton - so yucky! Thanks for the information on Saskatoon. I'm pretty excited to go.

My fav board game: trouble (the one with the push-pop dice in the middle)

fav card game: Uno

I have never had a rutabaga but I sure would love to try one. Maybe it could be diced and backed with a olive oil, salt and pepper.

my favorite game is definitely Taboo... it's a great game for groups... never made rutabaga..the vegan oats look really good..

Jessica @ The Process of Healing said...

I like Uno!
My food processor is a slacker and can't manage soft serve bananas..obviously, this upsets me quite a bit.

emily said...

Jeez, those VOO do look fabulous!

1. Scattegories. Although I made my own game like a total cheap-o and we found out later I got some of the rules a bit wrong.
2. Never. I'm excited to see what you do with it!

Never had rutabagas...they look like potatoes?? I love starchy veggies though!

Fav card game is probably uno. It's so classic and simple.

Hey there! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I'm
trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this
problem. If you have any recommendations, please share.
