Oats are the perfect healthy breakfast. High in fibre, and filling. Porridge is the traditional way of eating them, but in the summer months a hot breakfast may not seem appealing.
This recipe uses oats, milk and yoghurt, as well as which ever extra ingredients you would like to add. It doesn’t require any cooking, as it is refrigerated over night to allow the oats to soak up the milk and yoghurt. Result: a super creamy, cool, filling breakfast. Lovely on it’s own, or you can add banana, berries, cinnamon, stewed apple, pumpkin seeds……or anything else you can think of!
You can use any yoghurt you like – plain, low fat, Greek, flavoured, soya etc. Same with the milk……semi-skimmed, skimmed, whole milk for the kids, oat milk, almond milk etc.
Mix the following ingredients together:
40g oats (about 1/2 a cup or a handful)
Cover and put the the fridge overnight. Add the extra ingredients before serving. Ta da. Summer oat breakfast ready for you in the morning.
