Funky Monkey Overnight Oats - St. Patty's Day Breakfast

Greetings blog readers. I'm back with yet another overnight oats recipe. I know, you're shocked. :)

Next week is St. Patricks Day which means GREEN EVERYTHING. Being the holiday-lover that I am, I had to create a festive overnight oats recipe if only so I can enjoy something clean and green for breakfast in the morning. Chunky Monkey overnight oats is one of my favorite overnight oats recipes. I decided to take that a step further and make it more along the lines of a green smoothie (get your veggies for breakfast), but with oats. And you know what? You can't even taste the spinach.
