Vanilla Bean Latte Overnight Oats

During the epic kitchen remodel last fall, I went to my favorite local coffee shop to get my caffeine fix every single day. You see, I had no working stove to boil water, and only the gross utility sink in the basement to wash any dishes (but I was trying to get by with as few dishes as possible). I tried to borrow a single cup machine from somebody from a local online forum, but it turned out it was broken. After that didn’t work out, I decided that a daily coffee purchase would just be tacked on to the cost of the kitchen renovation.

The upside was that I became a regular at the coffee shop, and I’ve always wanted to be a regular somewhere (#lifegoals). As soon as I walked in the door, they would say “tall vanilla bean latte, right?”

Now that the kitchen reno is a distant memory and I’m back to making coffee in my French presses and Chemex, I like to re-create that treat at home. Stirring Silk Vanilla Almond Creamer and a touch of vanilla bean paste into my mug gives me all of that coffeehouse flavor, while still at home in my pajamas. The creamer adds a slight nutty flavor and just a subtle sweetness. It’s totally creamy but totally plant-based and dairy-free, meaning it has no cholesterol or saturated fat.

I took my love of my favorite coffeehouse drink one step further with these Vanilla Bean Latte Overnight Oats. Simply stir together old-fashioned oats, Silk Vanilla Almond Creamer, yogurt, and then a teaspoon each of espresso powder and vanilla bean paste. Let these Vanilla Bean Latte Overnight Oats sit in the fridge overnight, and you have a grab-and-go breakfast that will make you look forward to getting out of bed the next morning!
