Ice Cream for Breakfast

No, not really; that's pretty gross, but more than that it's not exactly the healthiest breakfast option. I was pretty intrigued by this magazine clipping recipe, though, when it claimed that this breakfast item was almost like having ice cream for breakfast. Healthy ice cream :)

Berry Oatmeal Parfait (from Glow Magazine, September 2011)

2/3 cup quick oats
1 1/2 cups + 1 tbsp almond milk
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 bananas, peeled, chopped and frozen
1 tbsp peanut (or almond) butter
1 cup mixed berries, chopped

1. Whisk together oats, almond milk, chia, and maple syrup in a medium sized bowl. Pop that in the refrigerator, overnight.
2. Peel and chop the bananas, and pop those in the freezer, overnight.
3. In the morning, add the frozen bananas, 1 tbsp of almond milk, and the nut butter to a food processor and process until smooth. 
4. In a bowl/parfait glass/breakfast receptacle, layer the oat mixture, with the banana "soft serve" and chopped berries. 

No pictures this time around because I need a glass bowl/jar to make a parfait :|
