Basic Syn free overnight oats recipe
200g fat free natural yoghurt
Mixed berries, i.e. Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries
– you can buy bags of frozen berries/fruit that work well in this recipe.
Layer the porridge, yoghurt and fruit in a jar or bowl. Cover and put in the fridge overnight so the porridge absorbs all the yoghurt.
In the morning, stir so that all the layers are mixed together and top with more fruit.
Whenever we make the overnight oats we tend to mash a banana in with the oats and a muller light flavoured yoghurt, a sprinkle of sweetener and then add whichever combination of fruit/flavourings you like, then pop in the fridge overnight.
Here are some of our favourites – experiment with the yoghurt flavours !
A vanilla and chocolate sprinkles Muller light yoghurt, 2 tbsp of freshly made strong black instant coffee, a few instant coffee granules, a sprinkling of sweetener and banana mixed into the oats.
Strawberry and Banana
Strawberry Muller light, mixed with the oats, banana, sweetener and some fresh strawberries (sliced) – reserve some strawberries to pop on top.
As above but use blueberries instead of the sliced strawberries … Or use both ! (Or even a frozen berry mix)
Tip: for juicy blueberries, place them in the microwave for 30-60 seconds so that most of them ‘pop’, … Don’t forget to keep some back for the topping.
Mix frozen tropical fruits into the oat/banana mix along with a lime or passion fruit muller light.
There must be lots of other flavour combinations to try … Let me know if you find any not listed here .
