Make room for more Açaí recipes! There’s a new way to enjoy Açaí in the morning, and it’s called: Açaí Overnight Oats made with Sambazon Pure Unsweetened Frozen Açaí Superfruit Packets! I’m pairing the powerful antioxidants and healthy omega fats of Açaí with the vitamins and essential fiber from oats to craft this perfect breakfast bowl so that you can have Açaí at home first thing in the morning.
If you know me or follow me on social media, you know that I am a smoothie lover...some might call it an obsession. But even I get tired of smoothies from time to time, and overnight oats are a super quick, filling, and nourishing breakfast to have on hand. The best part: you don’t even have to cook in the morning!
I loved getting creative and using the Sambazon Frozen Açaí Superfruit Packets as the liquid to soak my oats. Wondering about the benefits of Açaí? This berry is unsweetened, bursting with powerful antioxidants (hello immune system!) and hosts an impressive combination of omega fats 3, 6, and 9. It really is a super berry!
To make these overnight oats, we’ll start with the dry ingredients - oats, chia seeds, and shredded coconut. All of the ingredients are added to a jar for easy mixing.
Next, we’ll add vegan yogurt and agave for sweetness.
Sambazon’s Pure Unsweetened Frozen Açaí Superfruit Packets are the perfect base to soak these overnight oats. It’s beautiful color will make your breakfast pop with color and flavor. You’ll likely need a bit more liquid, so any nut milk will do! I used almond milk in my recipe.
The last thing we’ll need to do before heading to sleep is sealing the jar, shaking it thoroughly, and storing the jar in the refrigerator overnight. You can also make these oats during the day - just ensure that they have approximately 8 hours to soak.
After a good night’s sleep in the fridge, your Açaí Overnight Oats are ready! Packed with nourishing, antioxidants and vitamins, this breakfast is going to be your new favorite way to start the day - I can guarantee it!
