1 cup frozen strawberries

1 1/2 bananas, frozen

2 cups fresh baby spinach

4 pitted Medjool dates

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1 tablespoon flax meal

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Talk about easy, this scrumptious and healthy meal is made the night before by combining a chopped apple, oats, cinnamon, non-dairy milk and dried fruit in a microwavable bowl.

 

Pop on the lid and refrigerate overnight so the oats can soak up the liquid. The next morning, simply heat in the microwave for a minute and breakfast is served. Tip: Try adding a 1/4 teaspoon of cocoa powder for chocolate oats.

Ingredients:

1 Fuji apple

1/3 cup gf oats

1/4 tsp cinnamon

2 tablespoons currants or raisins

1/2 cup unsweetened soy milk

Directions:

Chop the apple into bite-sized pieces and place in a microwavable dish. Add oats, cinnamon, currants and soy milk and stir to combine.

Cover tightly and place in the refrigerator overnight or at least 4 hours. To serve, remove the lid and heat in the microwave for one minute or until warm. Stir and enjoy. Makes 1 serving
