Summer Berry Overnight Oats

Summer Berry Overnight Oats

I love hot porridge with honey and chopped up banana, but its just way too hot in Sydney to even think about cooking such a thing first thing in the morning, so here is my summer alternative… Summer Berry Overnight Oats.

I have seen lots of recipes popping up all over the internet for overnight oats recently, so I thought I would share my recipe. You don’t really need a recipe at all… just pop in whatever you fancy! You really can’t go wrong with your favourite mix of nuts, seeds, spices and fruits. I like to make a few jars at a time so I have more time to dilly dally in the morning before I head off for work.

I’m a big believer in organic food… so I like to use organic ingredients whenever I can.

Tip all your ingredients into your jar.

Pour the milk over the ingredients. You can add the dash of honey here for some extra sweetness… I find that the natural sweetness of the fruit is enough for me.

Put the lid back on and give your jar a good shake to mix up all your ingredients.
