These cappuccino overnight oats combine toasty coffee with frothy foam for an all-in-one breakfast in a jar! This post is sponsored by Organic Valley
Coffee + Breakfast = Cappuccino Overnight Oats
Coffee and breakfast with no morning prep time and no dishes to do, all rolled into one? Could mornings get any more efficient?!
I love all things coffee flavor!
I am so, so, so back onto a morning cup of 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. Read this article to see some of the benefits of caffeine.
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. With cold brew coffee on the rise, I’m sure a lot of homes have some chilly brew ready to go. You could even use instant coffee.
Just soak your coffee overnight with oats and milk and you have breakfast ready to kickstart your day!
How to froth the milk
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).
Of course if you can’t have lactose, you can use a plant-based milk like almond milk or soy milk. Or even oat milk!
Cappuccino Overnight Oats Recipe
This recipe is super easy to make – just mix everything together and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, froth your milk and top with some ground cinnamon or cocoa powder.
Mix your dry ingredients together in a jar
I like to use jars for overnight oats because it’s easy to add a lid and shake. Note you can use gluten-free oats to make this recipe gluten-free. Chia seeds help to thicken and add some great fiber.
Stir in yogurt and coffee.
Add a little sugar or maple syrup if you have a preference for sweet. You could use vanilla yogurt too!
