This is a great choice when you are either a) not energetic in the mornings b) don’t have time (need to head to the office, get the kids to school or have a busy day ahead).
It is a simply recipe requiring minimal effort and so tasty as you can make it exactly how you like it and of course you can make a few batches at a time as, when kept in the fridge, the oats will keep fresh for 3 days.
1 cup oats (you can use gluten free oats, quinoa or chia seeds to create this dish – the choice of grains is yours)
2 cups plant based milk (I use oat) or you can use 1 cup milk and 1 cup fresh juice of your choice (apple or orange work well)
1/2 cup frozen berries (mixed or berry of your choice)
2 tbsp seeds of your choice
1 tbsp of chia seeds (for protein and added nutrition)
1/4 cup yoghurt (I use coconut for add sweetness and flavour)
Pinch of cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt
- The night before the morning you would like to enjoy these oats, in a mixing bowl add all the ingredients, mix and then pour into a glass container (that has a lid) or 2 containers for ease of ‘grab’n’go’ in the morning and put into the fridge
- In the morning you can enjoy your porridge as it is, after giving it a mix, or add some fresh berries, banana, nut butter and a drizzle of maple syrup if desired.
- For added protein, you can top with a spoonful of your favourite nut butter, yummy.
This dish is really versatile where you can add pretty much what you like to it to make it tasty.
