Mango Lassi Overnight Oats


My mornings are a constant battle between being lazy and wanting something special for breakfast.

The lazy side is usually the dominant side, and if I’m not careful I will end up eating a delicious but non-changing breakfast of avocado toast. A winning meal on its own, but a girl can only have so much.

One of my lazy staples is overnight oats. Toss some oats with water and lemon juice the night before and top with crunchies, creamies, and yummies the next day. Job done. I’ll usually go for almond butter as my creamy, but I needed more. I was restless. After a long holiday in India, I needed something bright. I needed mango.

This mango lassi overnight oat is the perfect combination of lazy and special, and is the perfect solution to my morning dilemma.
