I mean, seriously, a year? I suck.
But it could also be because my subconscious was waiting for this perfect ingredient to come along and be all like USE ME! And I said OK!
Fo realz, I think I am in love. I always worried that I couldn’t be able to get the flavors down without incorporating a ton of junk, but now I’ve got flavor and nutrition on my side.
So, can I talk about how much I love OLLY? It’s gluten free, vegan, and made from whole food sources. You can definitely feed good about that. The Velvet Vanilla has such a smooth flavor, you kind of forget how good it is for you, which is a win-win, especially when trying to feed chicken nugget hungry children.
To really keep these cinnamon roll overnight oats delicious, I incorporated two heaping scoops of OLLY‘s Vanilla Nourishing Smoothie Protein Powder, some cream cheese, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and vanilla almond milk.
The next morning, I swirled in a small amount of cinnamon roll frosting, to really get that taste right, and man did it ever deliver.
Seriously, I almost didn’t share. I wanted it all for meeeeeeeeeee.
But then the kids got angry and one started crying and I felt like a bad mom cause I was totally kidding so I had to give them back.
It was a rough five seconds, I’ll tell ya what.
And because I love you all, I thought I would let you in on an awesome giveaway OLLY is doing for you guys!
