5 Ways with Overnight Oats

Hi Lovelies!

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while now,and thought what better day to brighten your spirits than first thing on a Monday morning!

I know this doesn’t look pretty but it tasted AWESOME!

I LOVE overnight oats; so much so that I put all kinds of variations together to make for a fab breakfast dessert.

Here are a few of my top Overnight oats breakfasts.

1. Oats, pineapple,mango, peach, fat free natural yoghurt sweetened with canderel, with a sprinkling of granola on top (This is my summery breakfast)
2. Oats, sweetened fat free natural yoghurt, orange segments, grapes, apple chunks, (this is what I make when I have ran out of all the other more interesting fruit and don’t have much to work with haha)
3. Oats, sweetened fat free natural yoghurt, honeydew melon, passion fruit
4. Oats, sweetened fat free natural yoghurt mixed with a little choc shot, banana, strawberries, with a bit of honey drizzled on top (MY FAVE)

Those are just a few of my faves and yeah they do seem a bit samey, but the basics are the same.

I make my oats in this order: Oats, tablespoon of water, drizzled of yoghurt, all the fruit, more yoghurt, top with dry ingredients, honey or choc shot.

I always use between 35-40grams of porridge oats as that’s the Slimming World recommended amount, so I figure its best to weigh it, rather than play a guessing game. 🙂

If I’m feeling particularly naughty, I’ll use a chocolate yoghurt instead like the Shape one I used here; now that is GORGEOUS!

What do you put in your overnight oats?



Overnight Oats Recipe

If you’re bored with the same old cereals or egg sandwich for breakfast, then this is a good recipe and is massively easy to do! You can make lots of variations on it too to change it up. My version is below

You will need:

  • 30g  oats (I used Mornflake oats from Asda)
  • 4 strawberries sliced
  • 1/3 tin of apricots (not the syrup)
  • 1/3 tin fruit cocktail (not the syrup)
  • Shape Chocolate Orange yoghurt (99 cals)
  • Splash of milk (just to wet the oats)

In a jar/tub pour the oats, then add the milk. Layer the fruit however you like (I did strawberries,apricots, then fruit cocktail) and add the chocolate yoghurt on top. Put the lid on and leave in the fridge overnight. In the morning just before you eat, give it a good stir (note you won’t have stirred it the night before) and then get stuck in!IMG_4012

it really is that easy! I’ve also made mine with apricots and bananas and strawberry yoghurt before. If you do it with Bananas, I would advise putting them on top so they don’t get too soggy overnight. Or chop up a banana in the morning before you eat it!

These overnight oats recipes are really easy and don’t take more than 5 minutes to do. The original recipe I followed called for natural yoghurt but because I didn’t have any, I improvised and it turned out pretty tasty!

Let me know what versions you decide to do; I would love some more ideas for my own meals!
