Kefir overnight oats

Kefir is thicker than milk and thinner than yogurt, giving it the perfect consistency to make thick, creamy porridge.

Prep time: 5 minutes

Ingredients

Toppings

Method

1

Combine the oats, chia seeds, coconut kefir drink and plant-based milk in a jar or bowl.

2

Stir through the maple syrup. If you are using cinnamon and vanilla, stir these through now, too.

3

Cover and leave in the fridge overnight.

4

The next morning add chopped banana and apricot (or any fresh fruit you are using) into the bottom of the jar to serve.

5

Add the oats mixture and top with more fruit, nut butter and coconut flakes or granola.

6

If you want to make your oats a little thinner, stir in a splash more milk before adding to the jar to serve.
