Banana & Blueberry Overnight Oats

A fuss-free breakfast for early starters!

Don’t have time for breakfast? Make it the day before!

Prep Time: 5 mins  |   Difficulty: Easy    |    Price: £

Serving Size: One person.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 banana, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons greek yoghurt
  • 200ml almond milk
  • 1 scoop (30g) protein powder
  • 75g rolled oats
  • Vanilla extract
  • A handful of pistachios or other nuts, blueberries and raspberries to serve

METHOD

  1. Place the banana, yoghurt, almond milk, vanilla extract and protein powder into a blender and blend until smooth. If you don’t have a blender handy you could also just chop the banana into smaller chunks & whisk with a fork!I also added a small dash of honey and 1 tablespoon of mixed chia and flax seeds – both of which are abundant in protein.

    Both seeds are also a great source of alpha linolenic acid (ALA), a plant-based omega-3 fatty acid which can help lower cholesterol levels. 
    – Chia seeds can double your fibre intake and contain calcium and potassium for your bones
    – Flax seeds have more of the brain-boosting vitamin B1 and tissue-protecting copper

     

  2. Pour the mixture into a bowl and stir in the oats, then cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
  3. When ready to eat, top with the nuts, blueberries and raspberries!
    I used pistachio nuts, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries and raisins.OvernightOats
