The Turtle Mocha at Caribou Coffee is made with steamed milk, rich espresso, and caramel with toppings of whipped cream and snickers. Bringing a healthy alternative here, with a few smart substitutes, you can make a version that’s not only healthy but delicious as well!
These are called Overnight Oats, but you’re craving some now, you can head to the kitchen right away!
Turtle Overnight Oats
- 1 cup Low fat or Almond Milk
- 1/2 cup Roasted Oats or the usual ones (It’s your choice really)
- 1-2 Dates
- 1 tsp unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- A few nuts to garnish
- 1/4 tsp Vanilla extract
- Honey or chocolate syrup to taste
Add a cup of milk and dates to a blender and mix thoroughly. Add in the oats, vanilla extract, a drizzle of honey, cocoa powder and stir well. You can refrigerate this for an hour or more so the oats can mix well with the milk. Or…you can have them directly.
Garnish with mixed nuts and a dollop of your choice of topping (ie, honey or chocolate syrup)
Oats are a great way to start your day or can be had as a snack. They fill you up and contain a lot of nutrients. Overnight Oats can be prepared in many ways, all you have to do is change the ingredients and add what you like 😉
