Vegan Banana Split Overnight Oats [Gluten Free]

vegan banana split overnight oats

Two recipes – and two vegan recipes – in a row! I actually don’t think I’ve posted a non-vegan recipe on here for a while. Whoops. For the record, I haven’t went vegan. I’ve been eating my usual insane amount of Greek Yogurt and almost as much cheese as normal. I’ve been cutting back on actual meat because I just haven’t been feeling it lately and I have been eating more plant-based proteins: quinoa, lentils, legumes – that sort of thing.

I’m spooning happy with Silk’s Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative in my Vegan Banana Split Overnight Oats!

I had the idea of banana split overnight oats in my head for such a long time. I always just planned on making normal chocolate overnight oats and adding fresh strawberries and bananas for the banana split overnight oats, but when Silk sent me a container of their new Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative in strawberry, I instantly knew what I was going to do with it.

My all-time favorite breakfast is overnight oats!

I typically eat plain Greek Yogurt for protein, but as I flirt with veganism (just the tip, just to see how it feels) I’m really into alternative yogurt choices. Silk’s new Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative tastes just like normal yogurt, has the same smooth, creamy texture and is free of all the preservatives and junk flavored yogurts usually list as ingredients. It also has six grams of protein per serving and is a good source of calcium and vitamin D, so you’re not missing out on dairy yogurt’s nutritional benefits. It also comes in five other yummy flavors – blueberry, black cherry, vanilla (which I took down pretty quickly), tropical pineapple and peach & mango.

I don’t usually sign up for brand newsletters, but I’ve been getting Silk’s newsletter for well over a year now. They always have coupons, recipes and new product releases. I highly recommend signing up! You can also find more recipes for Silk’s Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative on their Pinterest Board.

Banana and Blueberry Vegan Breakfast Parfait

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably picked up on the fact that I did a 3-day juice cleanse this week. We’ll talk more about that later this week, but this was my first real breakfast last week. I threw it together Wednesday night out of necessity – what could I whip up that was vegan (because you don’t want to not eat dairy/meat for three days and suddenly reintroduce it) and still full of protein and yummy and could feel like a real breakfast?

Food vibes after three days of juice feels good.

Speaking of going vegan because I love irony, California lifted the foie gras ban! On the last day of my juice cleanse! You better believe I vaguely thought about trying to go get foie gras that night before PETA or some asshole lobbyist ruined it again for the rest of us. Speaking of which, I could never be interested in a boy who didn’t know what foie gras was. A also said once a girl not knowing what foie gras was would be a deal breaker. Luckily we both believe in eating force-fed goose liver.

A vegan breakfast full of protein and healthy fat!

I wish I had more for you today in the word department but I’m at a loss. A combination of the Sunday blues/other things on my mind has me dealing with a slight bit of writer’s block. So just go make this parfait and then enjoy it and tell me how much you did.
