This is an easy way to meal prep your breakfast so you can grab and go or serve up something which looks a bit special on a weekend – but still allows you time for a lay in! These Mango and Raspberry Overnight Oats not only taste like a little bit of sunshine, they will also give you a sustaining and nourishing start to the day. You will have already ticked off two portions of fruit before lunch too.
The chia content in this breakfast give health benefits but not the chia pudding texture some people just don’t like. And by soaking the seeds you make them easier to digest and the nutrients are more readily absorbed and assimilated in your body.
Choose gluten-free oats if you wish and a milk and yoghurt which best works for your diet, non-dairy milks work brilliantly. Personally I find the sweetness of the fruits enough but feel free to drizzle over maple syrup or honey to suit your tastes.
This is a brilliant breakfast to pack up in pots for work and save you time in the morning – and it costs a fraction of what you would spend if you bought one in a coffee shop on the way. In fact each portion comes in at around 40pence, so you can make four for less than the price of one bought out. Quick, easy, cheap and healthy – what are you waiting for!
