Meet my latest breakfast obsession – Pineapple Coconut Overnight Oats! I was inspired by my Pina Colada smoothie bowl to make this overnight oats combo and it is SO. GOOD. The pineapple and coconut combination tastes so refreshing and delicious! It is the perfect overnight oats combo for the summer. This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar free and is so simple to make!
On Sundays, I usually like meal prepping my overnight oats for breakfast for the week. It is literally so simple and then I have breakfast already made for me for the entire week! I make them all at once and then let them sit overnight in the fridge and then on Monday all I have to do is reach into the fridge and grab a jar for breakfast. It couldn’t be easier! I like to re-purpose glass nut butter jars and use them for my overnight oats. Re-purposing nut butter jars for overnight oats supports nontoxic living by reducing waste and use of plastics. Plastics do interact with our foods!
I love making overnight oats because it is a satisfying and delicious meal and also oats are not very expensive. I do try to buy gluten-free oats because even though oatmeal by itself does not contain gluten, oats are commonly processed in facilities where there could be cross contamination with gluten-containing products. If you have a gluten sensitivity, better to be safe and buy gluten-free oats.

During the summer, I crave all of the fresh, hydrating fruits. One of my favorite is pineapple. Pineapple are full of nutrients, contain antioxidants, and help fight inflammation. They are also so incredibly delicious.
If you’ve been following my blog for some time, you know that one my go-to breakfasts is a smoothie bowl. Unlike most smoothie stores you see that market themselves as healthy but are actually the equivalent of froyo, my smoothie bowls are full of fruits and veggies and largely gluten-free and dairy-free. I love making smoothies for a few reasons. 1) It is a breakfast you can make it literally less than 3 minutes. 2) It is made with primarily frozen or other naturally shelf stable products such as nut butter so it is easy to have these ingredients on hand because they do not expire quickly. 3) They taste AMAZING! Literally like you are eating dessert, except they are packed with fruits veggies, healthy fats, and proteins. It is such an easy way to sneak in a ton of veggies.
In the spirit of summer, I was inspired to make a Pina Colada Smoothie Bowl. This smoothie is literally made with 4 ingredients. You read that right, ONLY 4 INGREDIENTS!

This is by far my favorite summer smoothie! It was actually the first smoothie combo that I have ever made. It’s a fun green color and tastes super refreshing. The green color comes both from spinach and wheatgrass. I love wheatgrass! It is the first superfood that I ever tried. It has a grassy taste that isn’t too strong so its an easy add to any smoothie. Wheatgrass is high in nutrients and antioxidants and can help reduce inflammation. However, wheatgrass is the leaves of the wheat plant and can contain gluten depending on how it is harvested. It may be best to avoid wheatgrass if you are gluten-free.
Note: This recipe is labeled as vegan, but is topped with bee pollen (optional). If you are trying to follow a vegan diet, you may want to skip the bee pollen topping.

I’m not kidding when I say that I made this smoothie combo nearly everyday for a couple of weeks this winter. Yes, I eat smoothie bowls all through the winter. They are that good.
