Mango-Lassi-Overnight-Oats

If you haven’t heard, I love convenience and I love jars, so I’m fairly obsessed with overnight oats. Stir up some oats, milk, and whatever else you want to jazz it up, refrigerate overnight, and you’ve got yourself a perfect grab-and-go breakfast come morning.

This Vegan Mango Lassi Overnight Oatmeal Parfait from Fo Reals Life is a fancier version of simple overnight oats. The dish pairs oats with chia seeds to make an overnight oat chia pudding, then layers in a homemade mango lassi to create a delicious breakfast parfait.

So, um, okay, this is embarrassing, maybe even a little shocking, but I HATE YOGURT. I know, everyone is obsessed with it! And I’m jealous! You get to eat out of those cute little containers and try all those yummy, healthy, slimming, probiotic-filled varieties! You can even enjoy yogurt from other animals besides cows! How cool! But still, it leaves me gagging. But I can trick myself into eating a little bit of it, here and there– using Greek yogurt in place of sour cream on baked potatoes or in soups, choosing the ‘tart’ flavors at FroYo places, and, of course, lassis! I used regular dairy yogurt (instead of vegan) in the lassi and, yes, I ate my parfait all up!

Enjoy the video and the parfait! What thing that you DESPISE can you add a little sweetness to and layer into your life this week?
