Overnight Oats

10 June 2013

Let me introduce you to my new favourite breakfast. I call it Overnight oats, some call it summer porridge but whatever you call it, it's blooming delicious.

This kept cropping up on Instagram and Pinterest and I loved the idea of a breakfast that takes two minutes to make on an evening and is ready to eat the next morning {call me lazy!} I'm a big porridge fan but I don't seem to fancy it in the summer so this is a fab summer alternative. 

The first time I made it, I took it into work the next morning. My colleague was intrigued when a glass jar appeared from my bag filled with this! It's absolutely delicious and incredibly filling. And another perk is that it keeps you full till lunchtime so no need for snacking on naughty things throughout the morning.

Overnight Oats
1 serving

1/2 cup of porridge oats
1/2 cup of greek yoghurt
1/2 cup of milk
1 tblsp chia seeds (optional)
1 teaspoon honey
Fruit or berries of your choice

Put all the ingredients in a glass jar {or a tupperware container with a lid} Shake or stir gently to mix everything. Pop in the fridge and leave overnight. In the morning enjoy a yummy, filling, ready-to-eat breakfast.

So far I've made it with strawberry & banana, raspberry & blueberry and apple & cinnamon. This website has some great ideas for different flavour combos. I think I might try banana cocoa next!
