The title says it all.
I know there is a huge possibility based on the basic principles of probability that you could be ragingly hormonal and PMSing right now (you too guys!) and urgently needing a decadent chocolate fix (or is that just me?). Please, if you could muster up the courage to resist the American way of instant gratification and wait to read my review and the rest of this post, I would surely gosh darn appreciate it.
With an organic cherry on top?
Thank you for your cooperation as it’s much appreciated.
The lovely Kristina + Manisha from Stonyfield Farms offered to send me coupons to try the Oikos Caramel and Chocolate flavors. Since I am a horribly behind the times blogger (I blame my recent obsession with 16th century England and The Tudors: Season One), I obvs said yes, because I still had not tried them.
At Target, I was a lucky enough Everythingtarian to find the Caramel flavor (the Chocolate has eluded me so far – review is pending upon finding said flavor).
Upon opening it, it looked just like regular ol’ plain Greek yog…
With one twirl of my spoon, a lovingly creamy bubble of smooth caramel suddenly appeared in all its orangey glory on the yogurt’s surface…
My first bite? It tasted like I was eating straight up caramel.
But not as sweet.
Merely creamy, decadent goodness for 110 calories and 10 grams of protein.
Topped with Kashi Toasted Berry Crumble cereal, my only regret was that I didn’t have a cold, crunchy apple straight from my crisper to dunk right on in…
It gets better my friends.
We’re all friends here, right?
Good, because it is only with friends that I would share perhaps the most genius and delicious overnight oats concoction. EVER.
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 container Caramel Oikos
1/2 cup milk (I used 1/2 but would recommend 1/4)
~ soaked overnight ~
1/2 sliced naner
1 heaping T crunchy peanut butter
dark chocolate chips
At least until the next best overnight oats recipe comes along.
Seriously though, this was chocolatey but yet kind of butterscotchy without being too sweet but still retaining a fresh (not fakey) flavor all topped with a glorious pool of peanut butter that had my tastebuds wanting more, more, more…
You can jump for my love AND this bowl of overnight oats.
I did this morning.
Clearly, I am in a rambly mood tonight so let’s get down to it before I start posting weird pictures of me or getting really deep + philosophical or declaring my borderline-stalker love for Jake Gyllenhaal once more.
