Ingredients
  

  • 1 ripe papaya

Overnight Oats:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 2 tablespoon chia seeds

Toppings:

  • 1 banana sliced
  • 1/4 cup blackberries
  • 1/2 kiwi sliced
  • 1/2 peach sliced
  • handful of almonds
  • dash of ground cinnamon

Instructions
 

Make overnight oats:

  • In a sealable container, whisk together all overnight oat ingredients. Cover and place in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight to let the oats and chia seeds absorb the liquid and thicken.

Assemble your boat:

  • Wash your papaya, then slice in half lengthwise (make sure you've chosen a ripe one - see discussion above for how to tell when it's ripe).
  • Scoop out the seeds with a spoon and discard (fun fact: you can actually consume the seeds but they are bitter).
  • Pour your prepared overnight oats into your papaya and top with desired toppings.
