If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I like to take my time to make a delicious balanced breakfast in the morning, from pretty oatmeal bowls to sweet potato toast or eggs. I never skip breakfast. And sometimes I eat it more than once a day.
But the reality these days with a newborn to care for, is that I don’t have much time in the mornings to feed both myself and my mini human before 10 am. I’m lucky if I’m able to read a few emails, get some (semi-warm) coffee, and gulp down something quick to eat before Baby Table is up and ready to eat. Then it’s diaper change, onesie change, and try to pump and do various other tasks one-handed while holding baby so she won’t fuss before she goes down for a nap so I can squeeze in a shower and maybe respond to said emails. Then she’s up and hungry again, and we begin the routine over.
Don’t get me wrong, I love that little girl with all of my heart, but if you have kids, you know that it’s a task trying to keep both yourself and your baby nourished. So now more than ever, I’m a huge fan of make-ahead breakfasts that are ready to go in the morning, like these No Added Sugar Orange Creamsicle Overnight Oats!
These citrusy overnight oats are stupid-easy to make with just 5 simple and nutritious ingredients and no chopping or labor intensive steps. They’ve got it all – whole grains and healthy fats from oats and flaxseed, protein and calcium from Greek yogurt, and what is known as the Amazing 5 from Florida Orange Juice: taste (very important!), vitamin C, folate, potassium, and no added sugar. These overnight oats are full of both nutrients and delicious orange creamsicle taste, with no added sugar necessary. And the best part is, you can make them at night before you go to bed, and wake up to a filling, tasty breakfast that’s ready when you are.
You may have heard that you shouldn’t drink fruit juice because of the sugar content. That’s just more fear-mongering from the diet industry. In reality, the sugar found in fruit and fruit juice is different from added sugars and is fine to include in your daily diet because of the nutrients that come along with it. 100% Florida Orange Juice provides nutritional benefits for both children and adults, and it’s a way for busy moms and families to get another serving of fruit into their diets, which most people fall short on. Not only does an 8 oz glass of Florida Orange juice provide over 100% of your recommended daily vitamin C, but it’s also a good source of potassium, folate and thiamin, nutrients that many people don’t get enough of. It’s also full of antioxidants and is a good way to stay hydrated.
Now that we’ve cleared that up, you can incorporate Florida Orange Juice into your morning routine and start even your busiest days with a nutritious, tasty breakfast with these super easy, no added sugar orange creamsicle overnight oats. Whip up a batch tonight, and enjoy the delicious benefits tomorrow morning!
