Oats are known to keep you full longer, stabilise blood sugar and help your digestive system. They are also a good source of iron, magnesium and vitamin B1. I used flax-seed in this recipe for some extra added omega 3. The Coyo coconut yoghurt is non-dairy but can of course be substituted for regular Greek yoghurt.
As with a ot of recipes I post here the ingredients in can be varied to infinity, but for this one I used:
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 tbs ground flax seed (can be substituted for chia seeds)
- freshly squeezed or high quality bottled apple juice (just enough to cover the oats)
- a handful of strawberries
- 1 tablespoon baobab (optional)
- 2-3 tbs Coyo coconut yoghurt
1. Soak the oats and flax seed over night in the fridge with the juice (or water). Depending on what kind of oats you use they will absorb more or less of the juice but you want to make sure that all the liquid is absorbed in the morning. For this one I also added to some frozen strawberries to thaw over night and give flavour to the oats.
2. The next day or after a few hours, mix in some Coyo coconut yoghurt and a bit baobab powder or mac.
3. Serve with whatever berries and/or nuts you have at home. For this one I used strawberries, raspberries, pumpkin seeds, and pistachios.
