I'm smiling from ear to ear.  Do you know why?  Because Silk® has come out with three NEW non-dairy, gluten-free, non-GMO, and soy-free Almond creamers! And...they do not contain any artificial flavors or colors.

I'm happy because some time ago, my son went dairy-free. Ever since he eliminated dairy in his diet, I've been keeping dairy-free alternatives in the house for him and have cut back on dairy myself. However, until now, I have not found a suitable dairy-free creamer for my morning coffee. 

I love that Silk® Almond Creamers are available in three flavors: Caramel, Vanilla, and Hazelnut! My favorite, so far, is the caramel flavor.  Nutty with the luscious taste of caramel in a non-dairy, cholesterol free liquid.  It makes my morning coffee creamy without having to use dairy cream!

Since my son will be home from college next weekend, I picked up a few cartons of Silk® Almond Creamer for him to take back with him and came up with this wonderful breakfast recipe he can make for himself at school. 

If you've never made nor enjoyed overnight oats, you are really missing out! This on-the-go breakfast option can be made ahead of time and can be eaten cold or heated up in the microwave for an instant, wholesome breakfast anytime. I make mine in half-pint canning jars so they are easy to pop into a backpack when you need to take a breakfast with you. They even make a great afternoon snack! 

The addition of Silk® Caramel Almond Creamer in this recipe gives these overnight oats a yummy sweet nutty caramel flavor, which pairs absolutely perfectly with the cinnamon apples! Topped with a few toasted walnuts, it's breakfast perfection!

This is such an easy recipe to put together. You start by sauteing fresh apples (I used Fuji). Coconut oil works well if you want to keep the recipe dairy free. Once the apples are all soft and cinnamon coated, you mix up your oats, pour on the Silk® Almond creamer and the Silk® Vanilla Almond milk, then top with the cooked apples. Seal jars and refrigerate for several hours to up to a few days. The oats will soak up all the almond creamer/almond milk and soften and get creamy! When you are ready to enjoy them, just open, toss in a few chopped walnuts, stir and enjoy!

I purchased Silk® Almond Creamers at Walmart. Look for them in the diary section, near the other non-dairy creamers.

  5. YUM! I made my first overnight oats recently and loved them. I am not a cereal eater, hubby is. BUT the overnight oats won me over big time. I'm going to try your recipe and the creamer! While we do eat cheese and cream on occasion, we do not drink milk and only by almond or cashew milk. The caramel creamer sounds divine in this recipe!
