There is something so richly satisfying about oats, but with warmer mornings it is just too hot to eat porridge. So, these Blissfully Berry Overnight Oats are just the trick, they offer a delicious silk breakfast porridge that is lightly sweetened and filled with berry flavours, accentuated by a hint of lemon zest.
Whilst there is a little honey added to the recipe and sugar from the berries you use, that’s about it. Whilst we use a mix of both milk and yoghurt you really only technically need milk, and even then, that can be any milk of your choosing, but the addition of the yoghurt makes the porridge extra creamy and delicious.
In addition, the fact that you can throw together a bowl the night before means that grabbing breakfast is nice and quick. But with all those pro’s in mind it is easy to forget that the main reason why overnight oats are so good is that they are good for you! The process of soaking the oats helps to break down the starches, which means it’s easier to digest.
80gms rolled oats, about 1 cup
