WHAT: Powerful Overnight Oats

STATS: One container of the Blueberry & Vanilla flavor contains 250 calories and 5 fat, 33 carbohydrate, 4 fiber, 8 sugar and 20 protein grams — and don't forget to add stats for the milk! We found it at Walmart, 700 Bowman Road, Little Rock. More information at

THE SKINNY: Powerful's mission is this: "Create delicious high protein products to fuel an active lifestyle. After trying all of the other products on the market, it was clear that nobody was making great tasting dairy products that were also natural and 'clean.'"

Our mission is this: To enjoy what we eat.

And although we don't really love oatmeal, we do favor flavors such as Blueberry & Vanilla and Peaches & Cream. Therefore, we tried Powerful's Overnight Oats. (The company also makes yogurt, drinks, earthy-tasting snack bites and smoothies.) Add whatever kind of milk you prefer to the fill line and let it sit overnight in the fridge.

In the morning, stir and eat the mixture of whole grain oats, whey protein concentrate, milk protein concentrate, fructose, quinoa, flax seeds, walnuts, dehydrated fruit, etc., that tastes like cold, creamy (because we chose whole milk) oatmeal with fruit.

If that's what you like in the morning, more Power(ful) to you.
