15-20 each Frozen Organic Sweet Red Cherries

1 dash Cinnamon

Directions

The recipe makes one 16 ounce wide mouth jar (pint).

Place 2 tablespoons of rolled oats in the bottom of the jar. Next, sprinkle 1 teaspoon of chia seeds over the oats. Then place 4-5 sweet cherries on top of the chia seeds.

Repeat the layers two more time for a total of three layers. The jar will be a little less than 1/2 full.

Fill the jar with the vanilla Almond milk but leave about an 1" of space at the top of the jar. You may have to tap the jar a bit to make sure the almond milk gets down to the bottom.

Sprinkle a dash of cinnamon on top.

Cover the jar with a lid and refrigerate overnight.

Grab a spoon, your cherry pie jar and run out the door!
