Vegan Chocolate Cherry Overnight Oats

Yay!!! They're finally carrying organic mixed berries at the Loblaws now. We celebrated last week with this recipe. The base of these overnight oats are very similar to the chocolate-chip cookie dough flavoured ones I made a couple weeks ago, but cherry-fied and delicious:

Vegan Chocolate Cherry Overnight Oats
Yields: 1 serving

For oats:
3/4 C rolled oats
2 tablespoons of chia
pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon of almond extract
1/2 C frozen cherries, halved
1/2 teaspoon of raw honey/maple syrup (optional)
1 and 1/4 C non-dairy chocolate milk (almond, soy, it's your pick!) 
+ 1/4 C of milk in the morning (depends on consistency)

1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
2. Cover and leave overnight. It might look like there's a lot of liquid,
but the chia seeds will soak it right up by morning.
3. In the morning, if it's too clumpy, add another 1/4 C of your "milk."
4. Top with more cherries, bananas, candied walnuts, and more!
