Ruthie’s Healthy Recipe. . .
Mango Coconut Chia Overnight Oats are one of my favorite healthy breakfasts! I even love it for a snack during the day too.
Mango Coconut Chia Overnight Oats are SOoooo simple to make! Really. Just mix a hand full of fabulously-healthy ingredients together and then throw in the fridge. Let it sit there for at least a couple of hours but preferably overnight. . . and when you wake up in the morning it’s all ready to go! Magical. 🙂
Mango Coconut Chia Overnight Oats are packed with all kinds of super good-for-you ingredients like whole grain oats (to lower cholesterol), fat free coconut greek yogurt, low-fat milk or coconut milk (whichever you prefer), golden raisins, dried mango and shredded coconut too!
Let’s talk a little bit about Chia Seeds~ despite their tiny size they’re one of the most nutricious foods on the planet. They’re packed with fiber, protein, omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals too!
Nichole’s Fitness Planning Tips:
One of the key components to being healthy and fitness is prep. This is key guys….you can’t accidentally lead a healthy life, be nutrition wise, and fit in all of your workouts. Life just doesn’t work that way, at least not for me or any one else I know.
Give our Mango Coconut Chia Overnight Oats a try and they’re sure to be a favorite at your house too!
Happy Fit Friday!
Much Love and Peace~
