Back-to-school season means more food planning. Summer was pretty casual in our household this year because I started working from home in June. This meant that the kids actually got to be lazy in the mornings rather than being rushed through a morning routine so I could make it to the office on time. Lucky ducks! Well, it was all well and good until school started. Oh my, we should have started practicing our morning school routine a few weeks before school started. These lazy kiddos were in for a surprise when we started waking them up early and rushing them through breakfast and morning routines.
So here we are in week 2 of school, time to get through those morning routines without the struggle at the breakfast table. About a year ago we were introduced to Sir Bananas® Bananamilk and now we love to include Bananamilk into our daily recipes because this is a milk that we all love. Bananamilk is perfect in glass along with breakfast or we like it even better in recipes like muffins, with our cereal, in pancakes and now in Overnight Oats! Honestly, bananas make everything better! A personal favorite!

The first time we tried overnight oats we weren’t really sure if the kids would like it but we were pleasantly surprised. They loved it and I loved that I could make a few breakfasts ahead of time and not have the stress of what to make for breakfast on those super crazy and busy school mornings. Plus overnight oats are so good for you! Fast and healthy breakfasts can be hard to find.

I have yet to jump on the overnight oats bandwagon yet because some of the ingredients had me cautious. (Picky eater here!) But I love strawberry and bananas. But haven't heard of this milk yet. May have to give it a try! I will look the next time I'm at the store to see if they sell this brand here.

Oh I love this! This could be a great sweet tooth remedy too! Bananas have so much nutrition and the oats will be just what we need for fiber. I'm definitely going to mix this up!

We start school next week – this recipe is going to be on our menu! #client
I have heard about overnight oats and I am always afraid that they will be very soaggy, but your recipe looks simple, delicious and something I can prepare for sure. The combination of strawberry and bananas is a good one and that milk looks really good too.
I've never heard about overnight oats before. I would worry too that they would become soggy. My kids are picky eaters but, I wonder since they like banana's and strawberries so much if I could get them to try this out. I've never even heard of that milk before!

I had no idea banana milk was a thing! Lol! Wow, I'll have to check that out. It was a great idea to use it in overnight oats. Your recipe sounds delicious. Love the flavors you used.
I keep hearing so many delicious recipes for overnight oats but this one seems like the best one out there! I bet the banana milk adds a delicious sweetness to them but is also still healthy. I need to try these soon!

This is the second recipe I've seen using the banana milk. I definitely need to check it out, but I haven't seen it in my local grocery store yet. This would be so good in banana bread, smoothies and more!!!
I have never heard of banana milk! Wow, so interesting. I love making overnight oats! Such a great way to start your day. Breakfast is the most important meal!
