Recipe of the month

Usually during the week I always have a green smoothie for breakfast, but I am also a big fan of overnight oats and smoothie bowls. Overnight oats are a great breakfast that you can take along on a busy day. It is super healthy, it requires very little preparation time, and you can usually make two or more servings (for a few mornings). Today I want to share my favorite overnight oats

Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

Ingredients for 1 serving:

  • 1/2 cup almond milk (if possible homemade, and if not then one without added sugar)
  • 1/3 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1/2 to 1 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 1-2 tsp maple syrup (or honey)
  • 2-3 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 banana or apple

Instructions:

  • combine and blend the almond milk, peanut butter, and maple syrup
  • add the mix to the oats and chia seeds and mix well
  • put the mix in the fridge overnight
  • top with half a banana or an apple before consuming

Berries Overnight Oats

Ingredients for 1 serving:

  • 1/2 cup almond or coconut milk (I personally prefer a homemade almond milk, and if not then one without added sugar)
  • 1/3 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1 cup different berries
  • 1-2 tsp maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1/2 tps acai powder
  • 2-3 tsp chia seeds
  • 1-2 tsp goji berries
  • 1 tsp hemp seeds

Instructions:

  • combine and blend the almond milk, berries, acai powder and maple syrup
  • add the mix to the oats and chia seeds and mix well
  • put in the fridge overnight
  • top with the goji berries, hemp seeds and some fresh berries before consuming

Cacao Espresso Overnight Oats

Ingredients for 1 serving:

  • 1/2 cup almond milk (if possible homemade, and if not then one without added sugar)
  • 1/3 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1 tsp raw cacao powder
  • 1-2 tsp maple syrup (or honey)
  • 2-3 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 espresso shot
  • 1 tsp cacao nibs
  • 1 tsp coconut flakes

Instructions:

  • combine and blend the almond milk, raw cacao powder, and maple syrup
  • add the mix to the oats and chia seeds and mix well
  • put in the fridge overnight
  • top with the cacao nibs and coconut flakes before consuming

As you can see the base is always the same, so you can play around with different flavors and fruits. If you have a real busy week ahead, I would suggest that you make up to three servings.....this will make life a bit easier as you will already have a healthy breakfast ready for you:)

Stay healthy
