Easy & Fast Breakfast Hack: Overnight Oatmeal Smoothie

These overnight oats smoothies are simple to make and perfect for a quick, on-the-go breakfast. Why soaked oats instead of a hearty bowl of cooked oatmeal? Because soaked oats are easier to digest.

Starches break down and phytic acid (found in the outermost shell of most cereals and grains) is reduced as the oats soak which allows our bodies to better digest this versatile superfood.

One thing to note before proceeding to recipes: remember to add the oats and (your choice of) milk in the jar or bowl first to ensure the oats are properly soaks.
