Healthy Recipe: Chocolate Overnight Oats with Cherries & Almonds

Chocolate overnight oats with cherries


1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
½ cup (1½ oz/45 g) rolled oats
1 tablespoon chia seeds
½ cup (4 fl oz/125 ml) nonfat milk
½ cup (4 oz/125 g) plain, low-fat Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon honey
½ cup (2 oz/60 g) fresh or frozen and thawed cherries, pitted and stemmed
1 tablespoon sliced almonds
1 tablespoon cacao nibs (optional)


Put the cocoa powder in a small bowl, add 2 tablespoons of hot water, and whisk to make a smooth paste.

In a jar or container with a tightly fitted lid, combine the oats and chia seeds. Add the milk, yogurt, and honey. Stir to combine, cover, and refrigerate overnight or up to 5 days. Stir and top with the fresh cherries, almonds, and cacao nibs, if you like, right before serving.

Note: Greek yogurt and cow’s milk pack protein, but if you don’t do dairy, substitute 1 cup (8 fl oz/250 ml) of your favorite alternative milk. To make sure you’re still getting enough protein, add an extra 10 grams of protein with 100-percent pure protein powder.
