Soaked in three different kinds of milk and topped with chopped walnuts, banana slices and cinnamon, these 5-minute Mexican Tres Leches Overnight Oats are guaranteed to sweeten your mornings.
Once in a while, I need an extra little push to get out of bed in the morning. I either stayed up too late to binge watch a show on Netflix or one of the cats kept me awake all night. Whatever the cause, it’s not always easy. But that’s okay, because I’ve got a secret that can help make your groggy mornings a bit more bearable.
Say hello to these Tres Leches Overnight Oats.
Soaked in three different kinds of milk (almond, sweetened condensed and evaporated) and topped with chopped walnuts, cinnamon and banana slices, these overnight oats will sweeten your mornings and make waking up a little easier. Promise.
All you need is 5 minutes before bedtime to dump all of the ingredients into a glass jar and that’s it. Here’s what you do.
Add old fashioned rolled oats into a glass jar. Top with almond milk, evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk. Add cinnamon, chopped walnuts and banana slices. Close lid and shake for 15 seconds or so until well combined.
Refrigerate overnight and enjoy in the morning.
For this recipe, I used 8-ounce glass jars. It was a tight squeeze but it fit. I purchased mine at a local craft store, but I’ve also seen them at Target and Walmart. If all else fails, you can also find them here on Amazon.
If you don’t feel like going out and buying glass jars specifically for this purpose, I highly recommend reusing glass jars that you may already have in your fridge, even if they’re bigger than 8 ounces. I’ve personally made this recipe in a 16-ounce salsa jar or one of those spaghetti sauce jars. They worked perfectly!
I’m actually kind of a hoarder when it comes to glass jars. I never throw them away. It’s kind of a problem. An environmentally friendly problem.
