Basic Overnight Oats (with a Smoothie on top)

Vegan Basic Overnight Oat Recipe!

Raw Overnight Oats, or Museli to be proper, is one of my favorite ways to get really creative for breakfast! The possibilities are endless. I took basic muesli and topped it with my Pink Pineapple Pitaya Perfection Smoothie to make this delicious Breakfast Sundae.

Museli was developed around 1900 by Swiss physician, Dr. Bircher (Bircher Museli, ahhh yes now I get it!).  Dr. Bircher went against the acceptable medical practice of the time, which was to thoroughly cook all food.  He introduced a small bowl full of raw rolled oats and raw apple as an appetizer before most meals. He named it “Museli,” and this dish he introduced is now a popular European meal.  Wildly enough, back then doctors were walking out of his lectures to show their disapproval of this uncooked food catastrophe!

Thank goodness we are living in a more open minded world! I am so happyI can eat my raw oats without disapproval!

This popular breakfast is based on uncooked oats, fresh or dried fruits, nuts, and spices  mixed with milk, yogurt, or fruit juice. Below is a very basic recipe for overnight oats for those of you just getting started. I am sure you will come up with some unique and delicious ways to enhance your Oat-tastic morning breakfast!


1/2 Cup Gluten-Free, Uncooked, Old Fashioned Oats

1 Cup Vanilla Almond Milk or Coconut Milk, unsweetened

2 Tablespoons Raisins

1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract


Put all ingredients in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator overnight. Eat raw the next day! Add your fresh fruit to the mixture right before eating.
