Overnight Oatmeal that’s packed full of protein, fiber and fruit. No-bake, with only 252 calories! Perfect breakfast to grab on the go! (Thanks to thinkThin for sponsoring this post and providing product.)
Ever since we got a home gym in our garage, I’ve been much more conscious about what I’m eating. Around Christmastime last year, I started eating a higher protein diet. I started drinking a protein shake for breakfast and for lunch with healthy snacks in between. I also would eat a well-balanced dinner with a good amount of lean protein.
Fast forward a month later. I was SO bored! I was soooo tired of boring protein shakes. I had to force myself to drink them. I started trying out several different brands and flavors to try and satisfy my hunger and taste buds.
But then lo and behold, I found thinkThin products (imagine angels singing hallelujah in a chorus!). Finally! Protein products that taste good and are actually you know, high in protein, unlike some!
Even my two youngest boys have a few favorite thinkThin products that I can’t seem to buy enough of! One of my favorite products is the brand new High Protein Smoothie Mixes. I’ve tried all three flavors and they are all delicious! My oldest son is a huge smoothie fan and he makes one or two of them every day.
Okay, here’s what I love most about these little smoothie mixes. They’re pre-portioned packages with 15 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, real fruit pieces you can see, and 160mg of omega-3 ALA’s from chia seeds and ground flaxseed. Best of all? They’re GMO-free and include plant-based protein from almonds and sunflower seeds. Awesome, right?
I know what you’re thinking. You think they probably don’t taste that great because of all that protein, right? Wrong!
They taste creamy and rich. Not at all like what you would expect such a high protein shake to taste like. And because they include dried, whole blueberries and pieces of strawberry and banana right inside the packet, that makes clean up easier. Zero cutting and chopping of fruit! All you have to do is tear open a packet, pour into a blender along with almond milk and ice and blend for a protein boosting snack.
But sometimes I want something a little different than a smoothie for breakfast. Overnight oatmeal to the rescue! Everyone knows oats are a great breakfast but if you add in sugar or cream, it can get pretty calorie dense. I decided to lighten it up by making a no-bake high protein overnight oatmeal that’s full of good protein and fruit and will keep in the fridge for a few days.
When you need to get out the door to work or school, all you have to do is grab a jar and a spoon and off you go. These are incredibly easy to make, high in protein and will satisfy your hunger for hours!
Just mix up one packet of Strawberry Raspberry Smoothie Mix, blend it together as the directions indicate, but skip the ice. Then mix in oats, yogurt, milk and berries. Pour into mason jars and refrigerate. In the morning you will have a high protein delicious breakfast of overnight oatmeal waiting for you in the fridge!
