New Caffeinated Overnight Oats Could Overhaul Your Entire Morning

Making breakfast often sucks. Waking up early? Trash. Cooking while half awake? No thanks. Cleaning up afterwards? Even more trash than waking up early, somehow.

But not making breakfast at home can run up a check, either on your wallet or your malnourished body. Oats Overnight hopes to have the solution to all that with their new flavor of overnight oats — vegan chai latte.

The “meal” is a mixture of whole grain oats, chia seeds, flaxseeds, maca root, black tea, and chai spices. It also weighs in with a hardy 20 grams of protein and 80mg of caffeine. So, not only is it your breakfast, it’s also your morning coffee. 

All that’s left to do is throw the mix in a cup with a lid, add 8oz of milk (or “mylk,” as Oats Overnight calls it), shake it up, and leave it in the fridge for a couple hours.

Eventually the oats and seeds will soak up the milk and you’ll have an on-the-go breakfast comparable to oatmeal, except it’ll taste like your morning chai latte and give you that needed caffeine buzz. It’s a win-win-win.

For now, packets of the new flavor of oats will run you $45 for a pack of 12 and can be bought only on oatsovernight.com and Amazon.

Here’s How To Make A Boozy, Masala Chai Toddy

It’s all over—the holidays have been celebrated, the games have been played, and red carpets have been rolled up (for the most part). We’re officially entering that dark part of winter when the weather sucks and everyone’s down with a sickness; the only light at the end of the tunnel is knowing sweet spring is close enough to taste.

But, we can’t taste it just yet, so until we can, let’s try and keep spirits cheery by making the most of the season… aka, drink up! A little boost from a Masala Chai Toddy should do the trick. With a rich blend of aromatic spices and black tea, a touch of sweetness from condensed milk, and a few splashes of dark rum (for good health), it’s the perfect pick-me-up for this kind of spell.

Luckily the recipe is so easy a snowman could do it. Lipton’s Enticing Chai already contains many of the essential spices and herbs that make a Masala Chai—black tea, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, black pepper, and cloves. Simply brew and mix well with the milk, rum, and some crushed cardamom, and you’ll see yourself warming up in no time.

Teatime At Starbucks

A new collection of Tazo Tea drinks have made teatime so much cooler at Starbucks. The coffee giant has introduced three Full-Leaf Tazo Tea Lattes and two Tazo Tea Infusions.

You can chill out and relax with the lattes that include Vanilla Roiboos, Londog Fog and Black Tazo, as well as the Infusions which are offered in Berry Chai and Apple Chai.

According to Starbucks, most of the new beverages have less that 200 calories in a tall and are also chock full of antioxidants, more than a glass of good ole orange juice in fact. Prices start at $2.85 for a tall Latte and $2.40 for a tall Infusion.
