I will often make a batch over overnight oats or chia pudding if I am looking for a quick breakfast the next morning. Sometimes just oats, or just chia, sometimes a mix, whatever strikes me at the time. In the morning I add whatever I am in the mood for. So I had some ready and I was craving a beet smoothie, crazy I know, but I had the oats to eat so I decided to puree some beets and stir them in. Topped with some apples and chopped raw pistachios and it was good!
