Triple Batch Overnight Quinoa

Oats disagree with my arthritic knee, so I’ve adapted Epicure’s Overnight Oatmeal

Make this portable recipe tonight for an easy, on-the-go morning. Will keep up to 5 days in the fridge (or sooner depending on the expiry date of your dairy).

As a perfectly balanced GFRR Meal:  Top with 1 Tbsp Nut Butter or 2 Tbsp almonds and 1 Cup mixed berries

1 1/2 Cup plain Greek yogurt – here’s the DIY recipe I make

1 Cup 2% Cottage cheese

1 Cup cooked quinoa

1.5 Tbsp chia or flax seed

1 Tbsp Epicure’s Sweet Dip mix.  My fav’s are Summer Berry (https://danakayal NULL.epicure NULL.com/en/product/1001096), Coconut Lime (https://danakayal NULL.epicure NULL.com/en/product/1001094), or Chocolate Truffle Sweet Dip Mix (https://danakayal NULL.epicure NULL.com/en/product/1001092)

OPTIONAL:  3 Berry Boosters

 

Mix all ingredients in a bowl, cover, and leave overnight.  Serve with Tutti Fruiti or Cocoa Crunch

Enjoy!

2/3 tsp Summer Berry Dip Mix
Heat 2 mins in steamer

2/3 cup cooked Quinoa
Cottage Cheese
Greek Yogurt

2 Tbsp Nuts
1.5 tsp Chia seeds
1/3 cup diced strawberries

¼ cup Greek Yogurt mixed with 1/3 tsp Carrot Cake Mix

Almond Berry Protein Bowl

Oats dislike me so I did a variation on overnight oatmeal.
1/3 cup Cottage Cheese
1/3 cup milk. 1/3 cup cooked Quinoa. 1T chia. Splash of Vanilla Extract & 1/4 tsp Almond Extract. 1 tsp Epicure’s Summer Berry Dip mix and 1/4 tsp Cinnamon. Combine in bowl and set in fridge overnight. In the morning warm 1 cup of frozen berries for 2 mins. Add another 1/2 cup of Quinoa and your overnight ‘oatmeal’ mix. Stir to combine. Top with Almonds. I prefer this served with 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt instead of more Quinoa although need to Grocery shop!! Makes a delicious and nutritious Good Food Real Results breakfast!
