Tropical Paradise Overnight Oatmeal Parfait

All your Hawaiian dreams will come true with this Tropical Paradise Overnight Oatmeal Parfait. 

I think in another life I could have been Hawaiian. Long black hair, gorgeous milk-chocolatey skin, hula dancing skills like you’ve never seen… that could’ve been me. But I guess it wasn’t in the cards cause I’m definitely very white and cannot hula dance to save my life. I think it has something to do with the knees but I can’t ever figure it out.

Let’s talk about how Hawaii and pineapple go together in my mind like PB & J or socks and gym shoes. They are meant to be together. They need one another. I guess this probably stemmed from when my parents visited Hawaii when I was younger and brought back all sorts of treasures, my favorite being the freshest, most juicy and delicious pineapple I have ever had in my life.  So when I was piling the pineapple onto my oats last night I just kept day dreaming about that pineapple my parents brought home and re-promised myself that I will go to Hawaii and eat pineapple while sitting on the beach, even if I have to swim there.

Do you actually cook the oatmeal? Or just put the dry oats into the mixture?

    Just dry oats! 🙂

      Thank you!!! I’m totally doing this tonight 🙂

Would I be able to substitute the vanilla pudding for protein powder?

    Yes, if you have vanilla protein powder that would be best! If not, you can use regular and add a drop or two of vanilla extract.

      I do have vanilla whey protein, but the alternative is an excellent suggestion! I look forward to trying this! Thank you 🙂
