- 3/4 cup (85 g) frozen blueberries (no need to thaw)
- 2 cups (475 ml) creamy non-dairy milk* (store-bought or homemade)
- 1 tablespoon grade A maple syrup, plus more to taste
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Juice of 1/2 small lemon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups (200 g) rolled oats, gluten-free if necessary
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds or ground flaxseed
- Optional add-ins: 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and/or cardamom
- Topping suggestions: extra fresh or frozen blueberries, pumpkin seeds, hemp hearts, nut butter, etc.
- Make the Blueberry “Milk”: Add the blueberries to a high-speed blender along with the milk, maple syrup, vanilla, lemon juice, and salt. Blend on high for 45 to 60 seconds, until the blueberries are finely blended into the milk.
- Mix: Add the oats and chia seeds to a large bowl and mix well. Pour the bluebery milk into the bowl, then stir until everything is combined. Let sit for at least 5 minutes, to allow the oats and chia seeds to absorb some of the liquid. Then, mix again to incorporate the extra liquid sitting on top.
- Store & Serve: transfer the oatmeal to jars or other containers, then store in the fridge for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. Top as desired and enjoy cold or warm; leftover will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.
- Non-dairy Milk: I recommend using a thick and creamy milk, like cashew milk or oat milk – it adds to the creaminess!
- Blueberries: Fresh blueberries do not create a vibrant purple color when blended, so I recommend using frozen blueberries for the “milk.” However, feel free to fold in or top the oatmeal with extra fresh blueberries if you’d like!
- Stovetop Instructions: If you’d like to make this on the stovetop, add an additional 2 cups of water to the peach “milk”. Cook the milk, oats, diced peach, and chia seeds on the stovetop over medium heat for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the yogurt, then serve warm.
