Recently, I received an Apple & Eve VoxBox from Influenster. It was filled with 5 juices – 3 from their regular 100% juice line and 2 from their Fruitables line. I received these products for free to try. All opinions are my own.
Needless to say, they didn’t last very long. As soon as my first born saw the packaging, she was all over them. She loves juice boxes and I love that Apple & Eve doesn’t add unneeded ingredients like artificial coloring and flavors to their products.
The Apple & Eve Back-to-School Activity Book suggested making Cinnamon Apple Walnut overnight oats with their apple juice. They sounded really good and I’d never made overnight oats but had been meaning to. The recipe was incomplete, so I pieced one together and decided to share it here with you.
What You’ll Need:
- 4 cups Apple & Eve Apple Juice
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 container of old fashioned oatmeal
- 2 medium apples chopped (red or green)
- 1 cup walnuts chopped
- 1 cup nonfat milk
- 1/2 cup plain, nonfat yogurt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- Jars for the overnight oats. I used 8 oz Ball Jelly Jars.
Step 1. In a saucepan, stir the sugar into the apple juice. Once dissolved, bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to medium and let it reduce. If it doesn’t seem to be thickening up at all, try adding some sugar. Then, let it cool (it will thicken up more as it cools). This was my first time making apple syrup so I sort of just winged it!
Step 2. Mix yogurt and milk together in a bowl.
Step 3. In a separate bowl, mix walnuts, apples, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Step 4. In the jars, put down a layer of oatmeals, and smother with the milk and yogurt mix. Add a layer of the apple walnut mix and smother that with the apple syrup. Continue this until jar is full.
Step 5. Put on lid and let sit in the fridge overnight.
Step 6. Open and enjoy!
Depending on your personal preferences, you may need to adjust the amounts used. Just make sure that the oats are thoroughly soaked or you’ll be getting some unpleasant spoonfulls toward the bottom of the jar.
