What are overnight oats?

* Overnight oats are a super-quick, no-cook method of making oats.

* Just put oats, milk, or a milk alternative, and whatever ingredients you like into a mason jar or Tupperware and leave in the fridge overnight.

* Come morning, the oats will be ready to eat! They don't need to be heated up, so they're absolutely perfect for summer.
