There are countless ways to make this your own! Sub in any low-fat milk of choice and change up your flavors with a variety of fresh fruits, nuts, seeds, dried fruits and spices. If looking for an extra hint of sweetness, try a splash of honey, agave, or maple syrup. Looking for extra protein? You may also add fat-free Greek yogurt in a one-to-one ratio to oats and milk (1/2 cup). You can also try adding in protein powder or nut butter. My personal favorite: raspberries, almonds, dark chocolate chips and plenty of cinnamon!
