  • 1/2 cup milk of your choice (I use unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1/3 of a 5.3 oz vanilla Greek yogurt of your choice
  • 1-1.5 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1-2 teaspoons light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free quick oats
  • 1/2 tablespoon chia seeds


  • In a 16 oz mason jar, add milk of your choice.
  • Following the method outlined above to minimize the number of dishes, add yogurt, cocoa powder, light brown sugar, oats, and chia seeds. With the spoon you are going to eat with, stir until every thing is combined and the chia seeds are uniformly distributed.
  • Leave the spoon in the jar, and secure with a lid. Stick in the refrigerator overnight to let it set. Garnish with desired toppings such as berries, bananas, a dollop of yogurt, chocolate chips, etc. Enjoy!


Vegan option: Use any vegan vanilla yogurt.
