overnight oats with chia Seeds


Make breakfast a breeze with a grab-and-go recipe for Healthy Overnight Oats with Chia and your choice of toppings.

Instead of cooking oatmeal and milk, it is refrigerated overnight to become soft and creamy.  The key is to refrigerate the overnight oats for at least 4-5 hours.

After the overnight oats have been chilled, top them with fresh fruits, nuts, coconut, almond butter, or peanut butter anything your heart desires.

All you have to remember is the ratio 1:1. That’s one part old fashioned oats to one part liquid (i.e. milk, yoghurt, juice, etc.). Stir in a tablespoon of nutrient-rich chia seeds then pop your breakfast into the fridge.

Tips:-One can pre-soaked chia seeds with 2-3 tbsp of water for 15-20 minutes or add chia seeds directly with other ingredients too.

Adjust for sweetness with honey, I didn’t add at all. the chia seeds will make the smoothie get very thick if you let it sit for a while before drinking, so be sure to enjoy the smoothie right after you blend it up!
