Lemon Cream Pie Overnight Oats

Greetings from sunny Florida! Today I walked outside my front door and questioned if I was still in the south. It's COLD outside - around 30 degrees this morning. Brrrr! My heart goes out to all of you experiencing the awful winter weather in the northeast. I wouldn't have the stomach for that. Too much Florida blood in me. This recipe is for everyone experiencing this awful bought of cold weather (which is most of the U.S. at the moment). I wanted to bring a little bit of springtime into your world.

I love fresh juices, and using pure ingredients in my foods. Unfortunately, so many ingredients are heavily processed and contain a lot of harmful additives. I'm always very conscious of what I'm putting in my body. It has a major impact on overall wellbeing. So I get excited when I find an all-natural product that is also incredible delicious and functional.

Recently I tried a few products from a brand called Isaiah's Garden. Every product they produce is all natural with no additives or preservatives. Their flagship product, Isaiah's Pure Natural, is fantastic as a salad dressing. And their Pure Honey is delectable.

I also had to try their lemon juice: Isaiah's Lemon Life. This juice is different from the run-of-the-mill lemon juice you would pick up at your grocery store. They use the ENTIRE lemon. That includes the peel. Why? Because it's more nutritious, of course! You can read more about the health benefits of Isaiah's Garden's products here. Eat clean, train dirty!

I've been trying to come up with creative ways to use my new Isaiah's Garden products. Obviously I had to do something with overnight oats, being as obsessed as I am. And here is what I came up with. This recipes uses Isaiah's Garden Lemon Life. It's a perfect breakfast to get you in the Springtime mood and chase away those wintertime blues.
