the story behind this: i made a smoothie. i made a batch of overnight oats. i wanted to have both. so I did – at the same time.
I added some of my smoothie on top of my overnight oats, sprinkled some superfood granola on it, and was pleasantly satisfied with the taste. crunchy because of the granola, sweet because of the smoothie, and savory because of the peanut butter. all of my favorite things in one bowl.
