Blueberry Banana Overnight Chia Oats

blueberry banana overnight chia oats shed for the wed healthy recipes

I love overnight oats because they are a quick and easy breakfast if you have time to prep the night before. You can also add a plant based protein powder for an extra protein boost!

Blueberry Banana Overnight Oats


  • 1/2 banana

  • 1/3 cup chia seeds

  • handful of blueberries (or however many sound good to you!)

  • 1/2 cup oats

  • Unsweetened vanilla almond milk

  • Dash vanilla extract


Take half a banana and smash on the bottom of a mason jar. Layer chia seeds (about 1/3 cup), blueberries, and oats (about 1/2 cup). Cover with unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Add a dash of vanilla extract. Leave overnight covered in the fridge. In the morning 🎶 stir it up 🎶 before eating!

If you like your oats to be super flavorful, consider layering them on the bottom before the banana so they soak up more of the flavor!

Cheery Cherry Chia Bowl

Hi friends! I owe you guys a recipe, and I just couldn't wait to share this one with you! I called it the "cheery" cherry chia bowl because it brought so much cheer to my morning routine. No joke. If you love cherry, you will love this. The frozen cherries melt into the concoction and their juices bring an awesome flavor. It is a perfect weekday breakfast! Let me know if you try it! Xx, AHS

Peach Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

The past couple weeks I really have not been home very much. Between post-Thanksgiving travel, my boo traveling for work, and spending time at the hospital with my step-dad - I haven't wanted to go to the grocery store, buy a bunch produce and then have it all die before I can use it. 

So for meals, I have been trying very hard to utilize what I already have in the house (which is why you saw me eat coconut chips for lunch yesterday. Sad.). It is also helping me save money, because all my money typically goes towards food. 

Last night's dinner was Trader Joe's frozen turkey burgers (no buns) with balsamic caramelized onions along with some frozen broccoli steamed in the microwave with lemon and romano cheese. Pretty dang good. 

Yesterday I used the last of the eggs, which by now, you have realized is my go to brekky of choice. Instead of going to the store like a normal human, I chose the alternative, find a way to make what I had in the house work. And I'm so glad I did! 

Thus today's recipe inspiration emerged. I had a whole tub of frozen peaches from last summer. I had frozen them at their peak ripeness (bought too many, couldn't eat them all!!) so they have a perfect flavor! I have heaps of chia seeds (my preferred add on for my omega 3s!). I still had some almond milk. I still had protein powder. 

I made Peach Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding and it was perfect. I devoured it. My husband loved it. Even though it is cold outside, it was like a fresh taste of summer coming to warm me up! 

See the recipe below. You are over the hump babes! Happy Thursday! xx
