More Overnight Oatmeal

Yes I'm still into overnight oatmeal and having fun trying out different combinations! :D Initially I've used Nestle natural yogurt, but after trying out Pauls natural yogurt, I prefer the latter one which tasted less sourish :) Let's see what are the combinations I've tried out this week!


Low Sugar Almond Milk with Dried Fruits Overnight Oatmeal

Adding dried fruits to the oats tasted very fruity! No additional sweetener is required as the dried fruits are already loaded with sugar content! I like nuts/seeds inside my oatmeal, so I added in tbsp of toasted pumpkin seeds and sunflowers seeds for extra crunch and texture.


Low Sugar Almond Milk with Dried Fruits Overnight Oatmeal
Ingredient
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup low sugar almond milk
  • 1/2 cup natural yogurt
  • 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp dried cranberries
  • 1 tbsp sultana
  • 4 dried apricots, sliced thinly 
  • 1 tbsp toasted pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tbsp toasted sunflower seeds

Method
  1. Place rolled oats in a clean and dry jar. Add in milk, yogurt and chia seeds. Stir well to combine.
  2. Add in all the dried fruits and seeds and mix well.
  3. Let it sit in fridge for at least 3 hours before serving. No additional sweetener is required.

Nutella Overnight Oatmeal

Nutella Parfait - This is so yummylicious! My kids favourite and they commented this is chocolate ice-cream. After soaking the oats till creamy as above, I layered it with some crushed homemade Nutella cookies! Awesome dessert! Will share this easy homemade Nutella cookies soon :D



And lastly this Berry Berry Overnight Oatmeal :D I managed to get really sweet raspberries today! Instead of using strawberry milk or strawberry flavoured yogurt which are loaded with sugar and flavourings, I've blended a handful of fresh strawberries and raspberries with low fat milk! Love the sweet berry flavour from the blended milk! That's all for today and I hope I can try out a few more combinations for the coming weeks ^0^

Hi Veronica,
Is it ok to use air tight plastic container instead?
Thank you in advance, Mae

Mae....is better to use glassware. I understand that acidity of certain fruits may cause to leach unhealthy properties from the plastic, better to play safe :)

Hi,Is it must be organic oats? Or normal instant oats? Dun really understand what is rolled oats. Sorry.

Peng said...

You can choose organic rolled oats (old fashioned) if u like. It is different from instant oats or baby oats which the latter will actually dissolved in liquid faster giving a mushy like texture. But is up to individual liking. Btw old fashioned rolled oats is healthier than other type as they are less processed therefore more nutrients retained.
