Recipe; Overnight Oats

22nd May 2013

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day. On days when I know I will,spend ages on my outfit, hair and makeup, be rushing out the door and breakfast will be at the bottom of my priority list I prepare a secret weapon the night-before. Behold; Overnight Oats. A perfect mix of creamy yogurt, your favorite fruit toppings and of course oats!


  • 1/2 Cup Oats 
    overnight oats, oats in a jar, eatliveloveit

  • 2/3 Cup Almond Milk (or milk of your choice)
  • 1 tablespoon Greek/Low fat yogurt. (I like it plain but you can pick the flavor you like)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, vanilla essence or honey. (you can add whatever flavouring you like- My favourite is cinnamon)
  • Fruit for topping

  • You can add more or less milk and yoghurt depending on the texture you like the best. 

Ready in:

  • 5 minutes preparation, 4 hours (or overnight) to set, 5 minutes to eat!


  • Mix all of the ingredients in an air tight container and leave in the fridge over night. (I like to use an empty jar or a Tupperware box)
  • The next morning add on your toppings; yoghurt, fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, flax-seed etc. 
    *My FAVORITE topping is 1/2 apple and 1/2 banana chopped up and heated in the microwave for about 90sec. The hot fruit with the cold oats is amazing!
  • Either eat them straight from the jar or pop them in a bowl.
  • I like to layer mine in the jar (mostly because it looks pretty) Oats, yoghurt, fruit, repeat!
  • I usually use half the fruit in the Oats and keep the other half to go on top in the morning!
  • Use a nearly empty peanut butter or jam jar so you get all the yummyness from the sides of the jar mixed with the oats!
