10 February, 2014
SOAK YOUR OATS OVERNIGHT
...and add yogurt to the mix!
Now that you are making yogurt on a regular, breakfast is the first place to start injecting this healthy item into your day.
This is a no-cook recipe, the oats and chia seeds simply absorb your homemade yogurt overnight, making for a delicious breakfast meal - with no fuss for you in the morning.
The choice of what to mix in with your oatmeal is endless- vary the fruit or spices as you wish. Add extra like nuts or seeds whole or as butters for extra protein and flavour.
Though you could heat them a bit in the microwave, these are meant to be eaten cold, and that's our recommendation to keep the probiotics alive; The recipe below makes 1 serving.
1/3 cup rolled oats
1/3 – 1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1/2 banana (or other fruit of choice)
1/2 tbsp chia seeds
Pinch cinnamon (or other spice preference)
*If you like it thicker add more yogurt and less milk. If you made a batch of runny yogurt you probably do not need a
Stir everything together in a bowl. (We like the mason jar trend going on right now, it makes it 'to-go' too)
Place in fridge overnight. In the morning top with something crunchy or nut butter and nuts. Don't add these items the night before as they'll disrupt absorption and get soggy.
