😋🍋Eat this Lemon Cream Overnight Oats as-is or with some yummy toppings – either way, you will be looking forward to breakfast!
You can use any kind of milk you want in this, but I like oat milk because it has a creamier texture.
✅If you want to boost the protein and cut back on the tartness, stir ½ to 1 scoop of your favorite vanilla plant-based protein powder. If you use protein powder, stir it in just before serving. You might have to add a little more milk so it doesn’t get dry.
LEMON CREAM OVERNIGHT OATS

Place all the oats ingredients in a large mason jar and cover tightly. Shake it to mix the ingredients, and store it in the refrigerator overnight.
In the morning, shake the jar again and divide the oats between two bowls. Stir in the optional protein powder (and milk if needed). Add optional toppings and enjoy!
