Easiest Overnight Oats Recipe with Lots of Fruits! : Hey friends! Hope you all are having an awesome start to March. Today’s recipe is a very simple, healthy and tasty breakfast option. I might have mentioned this earlier, but I’m saying it again: Including Oats in your diet is not at all boring. The day I tried the overnight soaked oats for the first time, I completely fell in love with it. The concept of soaking oats overnight comes from a famous breakfast called ‘Bircher Muesli’, which originated in Australia. It is basically Muesli (which is made of oats), soaked overnight in flavored milk and other ingredients.
The reason this breakfast is convenient is that you can completely do the preparations the previous night and don’t have to rush in the morning. Also, if you soak oats overnight, no cooking is required. The reason it’s tasty is that you can add any flavor and fruits of your choice. The reason it’s healthy is that it is oats!
It’s really pretty simple to prepare this breakfast. All you have to do is mix ingredients.
Here’s what you will need:
Ingredients for Overnight Oats
- 1 Cup rolled or instant oats
- 1 cup Milk or Almond Milk or Coconut milk (you can use any milk of your choice)
- 2 tbsp honey (according to your choice)
- Any fruits of your choice
Method of Preparing Overnight Oats with Fruits
Please note that if you are soaking the oats in milk, it always has to be 1:1 ratio between the oats and the milk.
You can also soak the oats in flavored yogurt (I usually do that). If you are using yogurt, it has to be 1:1 ratio of the yogurt and oats and an extra 1/3 cup of milk.
You can also add in dry fruits, flax seeds and chia seeds to it.
All you have to do is mix everything well, cover the lid of the container and keep it in the fridge overnight.
Next day, just take it out in a bowl and top it with your favorite fruits :D
You can soak it all in a jar as well, and you can add some fruits in the jar the next day and carry it to your work too. I make it sometimes in a jar too!
It’s super easy, yummy and healthy! And makes life so much easier. Have a great week until the next recipe J
