Chocolate Avocado Overnight Oat Parfaits

Chocolate Avocado Overnight Oat Parfaits Recipe   Do any of you have a special Friday ritual—a “treat-yo-self” (Parks & Rec anyone?) that you partake in on a weekly basis? 

I look forward to Fridays for many reasons, but one of them is simply that I get to start off my morning with these super creamy, chocolaty, and naturally sweetened parfaits—with a “secret ingredient”.

Let’s make chocolate avocado overnight oat parfaits!*

Chocolate Vegan overnight oats recipe on The Local Sprout food blogAvocado in oats—you may ask—is not as weird as it sounds. It has become socially acceptable to add avo to smoothies and pair it with chocolate desserts, so why not mix it into chocolate oatmeal with some creamy coconut yogurt?

The avocado in this recipe makes it extra creamy, adds some healthy fat, and gets some great nutrients in first thing in the morning. Do it. Add the avocado. You will not regret it.
