Vanilla Chai Overnight Oat Parfait

Sometimes you just need a little pick-me-up from a coffee shop. Like right now, for example. 

Or you can just have oatmeal. 

Like everyone else, I am obsessed with chai. The amount of iced soy chais I get from the coffee shop on campus is ridiculous. But the spicy/sweetness of the drink just calls my name. 

Vanilla Chai Overnight Oat Parfait

Step 1:
1/3 cup oats
2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 Tbsp chai concentrate*
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1/8 tsp cinnamon
pinch salt

Step 2:
2 Tbsp vanilla protein powder
2 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk

Mix together the ingredients from step 1 in a container and place in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, take out and layer (or pour) the frosting from step 2 into the oats. 

*can also be done with full strength brewed chai. If doing this, let oats sit overnight in about 2/3 cup tea and a splash almond milk.

With this batch, I heated up the oats a bit in the microwave so it was warm and comforting but keep the "icing" on the cooler side. Boom, exactly like a chai latte. What could be better on a chilly morning?

That's right, nothing. 

My dog even wanted in on the action. How sweet is his face?

On a completely unrelated note, you all should follow honeyandnectar on instagram =D
