extra almonds, cherries, and/or honeyfor topping, if desired
In a medium bowl whisk together the almondmilk, honey, vanilla extract, and salt.
Add the oats, chia seeds, almonds, and cherries. Stir until combined.
Cover and allow to sit in refrigerator for at least four hours.
Enjoy topped with extra almonds, cherries, or honey if desired.
Make it vegan: be sure to substitute maple syrup for the honey (or another kind of sweetener). This is also important if you are serving it to a child under 1 year old.
Storage: Store this in your refrigerator for up to four days. If it thickens too much over time, thin it out with a little more almondmilk.
Time saving tip: To save prep time, you can use frozen cherries that have already been pitted. You can even use chopped dried cherries- they will soften a bit as they sit in the liquid, but will have more "chew" than fresh or frozen.
