Honeydew Overnight Oatmeal

For the most part, I have transitioned beautifully to urban life. I love public transportation, bustling sidewalks, diverse eateries, and city parks surrounded by cement and skyscrapers. The one thing that continues to challenge me is grocery shopping.

I do not own a car in New Jersey, so I either walk or take public transit. I have several different grocery options, but all of which are at least a mile away. This is not a terrible walk, but it can get uncomfortable when I'm lugging heavy grocery bags. Thus, items like melons, squash, and big cartons of almond milk can be a pain.

I treated myself last weekend to a big, beautiful honeydew. Carrying it royally sucked, but it was worth it once I cut into it, and blended it into this oatmeal. :)

Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: Overnight
Ingredients (serves 1)
  • 1 cup diced honeydew (the riper, the better!)
  • 1/3 cup milk of choice
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (I use Country Choice Organic)
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1 tsp honey or other sweetener
  • 1 tsp chia seeds (optional)
  • pinch of salt
  1. Blend first two ingredients together, preferably in a Magic Bullet-esque blender.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a mason jar.
  3. Cover with lid and shake, shake, shake until combined.
  4. Store in the refrigerator overnight (or for several hours). Eat cold or warm up in the microwave! I topped mine with more honeydew chunks and shredded coconut.

  1. Could you get one of those little folding grocery carts? I'm sure Chinatown has inexpensive ones. I used one when I was in Spain and it made heavy groceries much easier to bring home, but I also never had to take public transit home from stores.
