The kids will feel like they’re having dessert for breakfast, and you’ll get them sitting at the table again. Breakfast is fun in our home!

- 1/4 cup plant based milk
- 1/4 cup cashews , soaked in water for 2-4 hours
- 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 frozen banana , sliced
Mash banana on the bottom of a mason jar or bowl. Add all ingredients and mix really really well. Cover and let sit in fridge overnight.
Drain cashews and discard water. Blend all ingredients together until thick and creamy. Add a touch more milk, if needed. I use a Vitamix, but a food processor or high-powered blender can be used. Make sure to scrape down sides here and there. For extra sweetness, add 1 pitted date or 1 tbsp of maple syrup. ( I didn't use it) Now, place the nice cream on top of your overnight oats. Top with shredded coconut, cacao nibs and blueberries. Enjoy!
*I soak the cashews over night in the fridge. The oats will be ready in the morning, so I just have to make the nice cream, and that's it. You don't have to add the cashews to the berry nice cream. It just makes it creamier. Feel free to omit this step, and make the recipe the same way. It's just as delicious!
*Prep time doesn't include chilling time.
