Holiday {Green!} Overnight Oats

In an attempt to amplify my already high holiday spirits, I decided to turn my overnight oats green! By adding some Spirulina, a blue-green algae, I added a complete protein packed with all the essential amino acids and many other minerals.  One serving can contain the same amount of antioxidants as 3-4 servings of fruits and vegetables.

½ c oats
¼ c goji berries
1 T chia seeds
1 T agave or honey, or a few drops of stevia
1 t vanilla extract
1 t spirulina powder
⅛ t sea salt
1½ c almond milk or water
pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg
optional: fruit such as bananas or berries

Mix all the ingredients together the night before and place in an airtight container in the refrigerator.  When ready to eat, stir contents together and enjoy!
