Refrigerator Oatmeal - 21 day fix style

Refrigerator Oatmeal

 

(Makes 1 Serving)




I LOVE refrigerator oatmeal.  I was so happy to have found a 21 day fix approved recipe.  Sometimes I enjoy my Shakeology for breakfast and have 
this for lunch! Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • Uncooked rolled oats (or use uncooked steel cut oats for more texture) - 1/2 Yellow
  • Greek Yogurt (1%, plain) - 1 Red
  • Fruit of choice - 1 Purple
  • Chopped Almonds or Walnuts (Optional) - 1 Blue
  • Stevia to taste (Optional)
  • 1/2 cup water


Directions

Portion out your fruit, yogurt and uncooked oatmeal.  Combine all your ingredients in a mason jar or tupperware container.  After everything is added in the container shake it up! Close the container and refrigerate overnight.  Yes it is THAT simple!  You now have a grab and go breakfast for the next morning.


If following the recipe above you will be using- 1/2 yellow, 1 red, 1 purple and 1 blue.

    1. You eat it cold. You can warm it up if you like. You can also use it the next morning by pouring into blender and making a smoothie. I put one teaspoon of Shakeology in it..it will be more filling....love this recipe.

  2. wouldn't the 1/2 yellow measurement of dry oats actually count as a full yellow since we measure oatmeal when it's cooked? A full yellow of cooked oatmeal would be a half yellow of dry, right? I could be totally wrong.. just want to make sure I'm not over-doing my yellows :)

    1. A blue of uncooked oats come to a full yellow cooked. You can measure it this way :-) to be accurate.

  3. Tammy H - I just eat it cold. It is nice to have it for the summer time! That is why it is refrigerator oatmeal :)

  4. Moul - Since it is now being cooked I just measure out a 1/2 yellow. In some recipes areas it says cooked and others say uncooked. That is what I do :) It's not something I eat every day so If it is a little off it's okay! :) Do what works best for you. If you are more comfortable counting it as 1 do that. Hope this helps!

    1. You have to use rolled oats, steel cut oats don't work the same in some of these recipes.

    2. Correct if you use steel cut oats i believe they have to be pre cooked... read the labels :)

    3. I know this is old but I use steel cut oats and it turns out fine for me...

  7. I am new to this and so don't understand when you say 1/2 yellow or 1 red, 1 purple, or 1 blue. Color? Measurement? 1/2 or 1--does that mean 1 cup? Please let me know. jfox@delmar.edu Janis Fox
