Breakfast On-The-Go

Breakfast on-the-go is one of the biggest challenges for athletes with busy schedules. We’ve found that making Overnight Oats is an easy way to make sure you’re getting the nutrients you need after a hard sunrise workout to maximize recovery. #EatingIsTraining

All you need is a jar with a lid and a few key ingredients!

  • 1 scoop of GU Vanilla Cream Recovery Drink Mix
  • ¾ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt (we like full fat)
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • dash of cinnamon (to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • optional sprinkles: blueberries, seeds, nuts, coconut! (frozen berries work well!)

No need to boil your oats. Just put all ingredients in a jar, seal, shake, then store in the refrigerator overnight. When you wake up, the oats will be soft and ready eat!

  1. As a first year law student, my daily schedule can be truncated. Overnight oats with GU Recovery Drink helps me get the fuel I need between my morning run and my first class. Definitely recommend this recipe, though I don’t add any maple syrup (the chocolate Recovery Drink mix I use is plenty of flavor). 10/10 would make (overnight) again!

  2. I love this recipe, it keeps me full and helps me feel energized in busy mornings! I don’t leave my oats overnight and instead cold soak them in the morning to retain more of the texture of the oats- since I don’t like my cereal soggy.
