Coffee and breakfast with no morning prep time and no dishes to do, all rolled into one? Could mornings get any more efficient?!
I am so, so, so back onto coffee these days. Admittedly I think I feel best without the caffeine, but it just tastes so darn good (and it’s good for you! Antioxidants!) that I’m keeping things caffeinated for now. I’ve been French pressing with some of our local roasters’ coffee and usually have a little bit leftover that I put in the fridge for another day. That’s how this idea for cappuccino overnight oats came about.
I used my Nespresso Aeroccino to froth my milk, but you can use a hand-held frother (or even the microwave and a jar) to get your milk foamy.
Organic Valley sends me their newest products from time to time, and their latest is Grassmilk and Grassmilk Yogurt. These products are the best of the best: they’re made from cows that eat 100% grass and dried forages, they’re minimally pasteurized, and they’re non-homogenized. And of course they’re certified organic, so there are absolutely no antibiotics, synthetic hormones, toxic pesticides, or GMO anything!
While all Organic Valley milk is sourced from pasture-raised cows, the Grassmilk milk takes it one step further. The cows are 100% grass-fed and eat only fresh grasses and dried forages, like hay, and they do not eat supplemental grains (like corn or soybeans). Nutritionally, Organic Valley Grassmilk milk is full of naturally-occurring calcium, omega-3 fatty acids, and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA).

And because your coffee is only as good as the dairy you put in it, check out this great video featuring an Organic Valley dairy farmer who swaps the roles of half-and-half and coffee in a hip NYC coffee shop. (The video is really sarcastic and quite funny!)
