You're either having chocolate for breakfast or oatmeal for dessert. Your call...
1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda or Truvia)
1/8 tsp. salt
3/4 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1 small banana
One 60-calorie sugar-free or no-sugar-added chocolate pudding snack (like the kind by Jell-O)
1 tsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
To make the oatmeal, combine oats, sweetener, and salt in a small nonstick pot on the stove. Add Almond Breeze, vanilla extract, and 3/4 cup water. Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer. Cook for about 9 minutes, stirring often, until thick and creamy.
Allow to cool slightly. Transfer to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 1/2 hours.
To make the parfait, slice banana into coins and set aside. Stir oatmeal thoroughly until uniform in texture. Spoon half of the oatmeal into a tall glass, and top with half of the pudding and half of the banana slices. Repeat with remaining oatmeal, pudding, and banana slices. Top with chocolate chips and enjoy!
