Passion Fruit and Raspberry Overnight Oats
Overnight oats are a great way to enjoy oats in there raw form. Soaking them will make them easier to digest. Overnight oats are a great way to pre prepare a breakfast. Just make it the night before and grab from the fridge in the morning.
- Firstly, make the nut milk! Check out my recipe for my Home Made Almond Milk.
- Place the oats into the small mixing bowl with the lemon juice, vanilla, cinnamon, chia seeds, coconut and homemade nut milk.
- Soak overnight and then before serving add in the yogurt and the raspberries and mix in well so that the raspberries begin to break up and mix through the oat mix.
- Place into a bowl or jar to serve and top with the contents of half a passion fruit. Cut the passion fruit into half through the middle and scrape out the contents with a teaspoon.
Overnights oats will be good for two days but in most cases no more. I will often make up a big jar of the dry mix so it’s there ready and waiting for me to add the milk and the fruit. A good little time saver.
It’s called overnight oats but this recipe will be good to eat in 4-5 hours, if you don’t have time for prepping the day before.
Make sure you soak your oats before eating them as this will increase the digestibility of oats, enabling the nutrients found in the grain to be better absorbed by the body. Oats, like all grains, contain phytic acid, which can inhibit the proper absorption of minerals link zinc and iron.
