Overnight Oats

Image from here
I was first introduced to 'Overnight Oats' by my friend Charlotte who was always coming up with yummy, but healthy food ideas at uni (you know when people can make a salad look better than a steak? That's Char).

The recipe is from Lauren Conrad's site (here) which i am always on because she looks amazing all the time and I want to be her haha. It's a seriously simple and quick recipe that is perfect if you are like me and would rather get the extra 10 mins in bed than eat breakfast before work. All you need is:

  • 2/3 cup almond milk (or milk of your choice)
  • 1/2 cup organic rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup vanilla (or plain) Greek yogurt (I used non-fat)
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon

  • You mix all the ingredients in an air tight container and whack it in the fridge the night before. The next day, you are good to go! As you madly rush out of the door, then back in again because you forgot something and then back out again you don't have to worry about your breakfast.

    A couple of extra ideas I like to do are:

  •  Use a Muller corner (or similar style) yogurt, so you use the greek yogurt in the recipe and you can add the compot to your breakfast for extra flavour.
  •  Take a banana and some almond flakes to add on top or any other fruit.

  • This recipe will keep your hunger at bay until lunchtime and it's super healthy. Just got to do the exercise part now...

    The image and recipe are all from Lauren Conrad's Website here
