Suitable for: Vegetarians
Nutrients per serving:
Throw your banana, almond milk and yogurt into a blender and blend until the consistency is smooth.
Pour the mixture into bowls (or glasses like ours).
Stir in all your oats.
Cover, then pop your bowls or glasses in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours - preferably overnight.
Top with blueberries, raspberries and finally, supercharge with a sprinkling of chia seeds for a hit of extra goodness.
Makes: 2 servings
Prep time: 5 minutes
Combine the oats, chia seeds, coconut kefir drink and plant-based milk in a jar or bowl.
Stir through the maple syrup. If you are using cinnamon and vanilla, stir these through now, too.
Cover and leave in the fridge overnight.
The next morning add chopped banana and apricot (or any fresh fruit you are using) into the bottom of the jar to serve.
Add the oats mixture and top with more fruit, nut butter and coconut flakes or granola.
If you want to make your oats a little thinner, stir in a splash more milk before adding to the jar to serve.
