Last week, my boyfriend wanted to try overnight oats, so I thought I’d show him how it’s done. Until I realized it was 9pm and we had NO fruit. That’s one of the most important ingredients! I tore through the fridge and pantry looking for something to substitute when I came across my full drawer of tea, just waiting for a purpose. I found a raspberry pomegranate tea that I bought and never drink, so I threw it on top of my oats, poured milk over the concoction, and let it work its magic while I slept.

I woke up the next morning, tossed out the tea bag, and, voila! Berry oatmeal!

Obviously I added more than just a tea bag and some milk. If you need some ideas, check out our athlete-tested, dorm-friendly oatmeal recipe for sweeteners and protein powders!
