OVERNIGHT OATS

    ¾    cup milk of choice
    ½    tsp. cinnamon
           Pinch of nutmeg
           Pinch of salt, optional
¼-½    tsp. ProBiotein, optional
    ½    tsp. vanilla or almond extract
    ½    cup rolled oats
    2    T. shredded carrots
    1    T. coconut, optional
    1    T. chopped nuts, optional
    1    tsp. maple or agave syrup, optional

Add ingredients to glass jar and stir, or gently shake with lid on. Refrigerate overnight. Enjoy plain straight from the jar or add your favorite fruit, nut, coconut or granola toppings. Serves 1.

Note: The options are endless with this recipe! Adjust to your tastes and preferences. We used almond milk, pistachios, coconut and maple syrup in the base recipe and played around with toppings. One paired strawberry and granola, the other raspberries, blueberries, pistachios and coconut. Yum!

SMOOTHIE BOWLS

    1    cup frozen fruit
    1    banana, fresh or frozen
    ½    cup leafy greens (try spinach or kale!)
    ½    cup liquid (milk, juice or even yogurt works)
    1    T. sweetener or nut butter
    1-2    T. ProBiotein, optional
        Toppings of choice, such as chia seeds, fruit, granola, nuts or coconut

Add ingredients, except toppings, to blender. Blend until smooth. If necessary, add more liquid to achieve desired smoothie consistency. Pour into bowl and add your favorite toppings. Serves 1-2.

Note: This base smoothie bowl recipe is customizable to all palates. For our smoothie base, we chose frozen mixed berries, spinach, almond milk and peanut butter.
