Shrikhand Overnight Oats

Overnight oats that tastes like Shrikhand!!! 

TRULY. Prepare to be amazed. 

Ah the convenience of cold overnight oats…

But, it’s no summer.

’tis the season for hot soups, warm blankets and cozy sweaters.

My mornings are still crazy. 

Theoretically, I’d love to stir hot oatmeal every morning. 

Ain’t happening. Not on weekdays. 

A simple breakfast of overnight oats to the rescue. 

A traditional sweet dish from the western region of India, shrikhand is made simply by straining yogurt and sweetening it with sugar. 

I cheated and resorted to the convenience of greek yogurt (technically a strained yogurt). 

Stir in some chopped pistachios or almonds, if you’d like some crunch.
