Overnight Oatmeal (prep 1 night in advance)
Vanilla Chia Hemp Seed Pudding (prep 1 night in advance)
Either in a blender or another container, add ¼ cup chia seeds, 3 tbsp hemp seeds, ¾ cup canned coconut milk, and ¾ cup unsweetened macadamia milk.
Stir to combine. Using a blender will help prevent clumps. If stirring by hand, slowly add vanilla protein powder to the pudding mixture, bit by bit to avoid clumps. Store in the fridge overnight for at least 7 hrs. NOTE: The texture will be quite solid out of the fridge due to the coconut milk being refrigerated, but will liquify when mixed with the warmed oats later. Add liquid to your desired consistency.
Compiling, Day of
Heat the oats. In a small pot on medium, heat ¼ of the Overnight Oatmeal mixture (both oats and some liquid) on the stove and bring to a light boil. Liquid from the oats are fine here, more may be needed for desired consistency.
Layer the bottom of your serving container with your now warmed Overnight Oatmeal, followed by a ¼ of the Vanilla Chia Hemp Seed Pudding mixture. If necessary, add a few splashes of nut milk to desired consistency. Top with ¼ of Sautéed or Roasted Pears.
For a crunchy texture, follow with walnut pieces, hemp seeds, or coconut flakes.
