So, so simple
Instructions for newbies:
Pour in your favorite milk to cover the oats. Wait until the bubbles stop and then pour in a little more to make sure they're all covered – about 2/3 to 3/4 of a cup should do it.
You can't go wrong: soy milk, nut milk (we're especially keen on almond and macadamia nut), good ol' dairy milk and even water all work.
Stir or put the lid on and give it a shake and let it soak overnight in the fridge.* The next morning, you're good to go. We think it's best enjoyed cold, but there are no rules.
Add granola, yogurt, kefir, fresh fruit...
Okay, there's one rule: You should let it soak overnight.** Really. We know you're impatient, but if you eat it right away, the fruits won't have a chance to plump up and the oats will be hard to eat.
Trust us. Overnight oats are best to eat within 24 hours after soaking.
The fridge. Is it plugged in? Below 40°F?
You're already doing great.
Oops, you forgot. No problem. Pour in a bowl, add milk, microwave for 2-3 minutes, and enjoy right away. You might even prefer it that way.
