It’s most certainly summertime! So, I have created a spin on the classic British tradition of strawberries and cream. I adore strawberries (who doesn’t right?) which are supercharged with antioxidants, phytonutrients and flavonoids. These gorgeous red berries are also low in sugars and carbohydrates.
My creamy overnight oats are:
- packed with healthy fats (lauric acid/MCT fatty acids) to keep you fuller for longer
- full of antioxidants (to protect the body from free radical damage)
- rich in vitamin C, K and other trace minerals
- made with only 5 ingredients!
What you will need:
1 cup oats
1.5-2 cups coconut milk
6 large strawberries* (pretty much 1 punnet. Organic preferably)
1tsp date paste
1/5 tbs chia seeds
If organic, keep the hulls on for added green goodness.
What to do:
Blend all the ingredients, excepts the oats. Add the oats to the creamy mixture. Pour into cups/bowls and pop in the fridge overnight. Garnish just before you are ready to eat (I use berries, coconut flakes and seeds). Yummy!
Makes enough for 2 kiddies or a very hungry adult.
