OVERNIGHT YOGURT OATMEAL
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.
Now that you have the base recipe just go for it! And share your success with us on Instagram or Facebook.
