Mixed Berry Overnight Oats

Serves 2

200g Porridge Oats
200ml Coconut Milk*
60g Frozen Mixed Berries
2 tablespoons of Chia Seeds
2 tablespoons of Thick Yoghurt (either Greek or Skyr)
4 teaspoons of Maple Syrup
1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
Pinch of Salt and Cinnamon

* coconut milk; from a carton rather than a can
  1. The night before you'd like to eat these oats - blitz the berries and coconut milk, for a few seconds, until a berry-milk forms.
  2. Add it alongside the other ingredients in a large bowl and mix with a spoon until well-combined.
  3. Place in a jar or tupperware - then pop the lid on. (You could also transfer the oat mixture into a bowl, and cover with clingfilm, if you've got time for a leisurely breakfast. The initial options are for transportation sake.)
  4. Leave the oats in the fridge overnight to soak and infuse all the amazing flavours.
  5. The next morning, remove the lid/clingfilm and top with anything you fancy. I like desiccated coconut, more yoghurt, raspberries and chia seeds with this particular flavour. Enjoy!
