Store in the fridge for up to 3 days (if using fruit) or 4 days for base protein overnight oats.
Old Fashioned Rolled Oats - Also called old fashioned oats, this type of oats works best for this recipe. You may also use instant oats, but they tend to become mushy after sitting overnight. Note, this is not the same as steel cut oats!
Dairy Free Milk - Any non-dairy milk will work. Try unsweetened almond milk, soy milk, oat milk or even coconut milk. You could also use regular or skim milk if you prefer that. 
Protein powder - You can use your favorite brand. I try to stick with a clean version, like Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey. You can also make this with vanilla or chocolate protein powder. If you want to keep this vegan, there are vegan protein powder options.
