As a long-time fan/user of Navitas products I was excited to try out their new line of Smoothie Mixers being sold exclusively at Williams-Sonoma. The line has 3 blends of whole-foods, that can be used in smoothies, but also added to drinks, yogurt, used to replace part of the flour in recipes and for me, a nice change to a bowl of oats, which work great for the trail.
Very filling, high in fat and protein, these oats prepare quickly and will keep you going throughout your morning.
Protein & Coconut Oats

- ½ cup quick cooking oats (1 minute style)
- 2 Tbsp Dried Cherries

At Home –
Mark bag “Add 1 cup water”. Bring along a packet of raw sugar, maple sugar, coconut palm sugar or honey. Add to taste.
On trail, One Pot Method –
Bring 1 cup water to boil in a small pot. Add in oat mixture, lower flame and gently cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Let cool a bit and enjoy.

Use unsweetened PLAIN instant oats instead. For FBC, pack ingredients in a pint freezer bag. Add near boiling water to bag, stir and enjoy. For IMM pack in a snack bag, add to mug and stir in boiling water, let cool a bit and enjoy.
