Overnight Raspberry Oatmeal

These overnight oatmeal recipes are very popular right now on Pinterest.  I liked my crock pot oatmeal in the winter so I thought I would give these cold oatmeals a try.  The original recipe called for blackberries and I would have preferred blackberries but I did not have any, so raspberries were the second choice. 
This oatmeal was interesting.  It was nice and thick.  I will say this it was very filling and lasted all morning long.
I also think fresh fruit would have been better too.
32 oz of smooth vanilla yogurt.  I got the Greek kind.  You could use plain but I like vanilla a little better.
1 cup oats.  You can use either old fashion or quick.  I had more old fashioned ones so that is what I went with.
1 cup fruit
4 teaspoons chia seeds
I had never had chia seeds before so that was another reason I wanted to try this recipe.  I lucked out and Walmart had these small packages beside the huge container of chia.  This way I could see if I liked them before I became more invested.  The seeds were found with the flour.  I wasn't sure where to look so I am helping you out here.  Chia seeds have lots of health benefits so give them a try.
Mix well.
The recipe picture showed the mixture in a fruit jar but I didn't have any empty ones so I used plastic containers with lids.  Put in the fridge and pull out for breakfast.
You can garnish with fresh fruit before eating too.
