Over Night Oats Recipe!!

Okay so I haven't blogged in a long long long time, 
I have recently returned to University and found it difficult to juggle my time!
But I have promised to myself that I will try to find some time to blog at least once a week!
Which for me is a lot!!
I may even blog more but I don't want to promise too much!! :P 

Today I thought I would introduce a very different type of blog post,
this is purely because I have started eating healthier and I have been helping my mum with it too,
When putting up pictures on Instagram, twitter, and Facebook I have been asked many questions about the food I have been eating
So I thought the best way to show everyone was writing it up on my blog

So the first thing I have introduced into my diet is this!
Over Night Oats!!

I absolutely love this for breakfast!!
 I have to admit that I used to be awful and not eat breakfast at all! 
I would try to eat something but would quickly get bored of it and give up and not eat anything :/

However after trying this beaut I would be looking forward to breakfast the next day!!
So here's how to make them::

Ingredients for 1 portion:

1/2 Cup of oats 
1/2 Cup of 0% fat Yogurt (I like to use vanilla flavored)
1/2 Cup of Almond Milk 
Teaspoon of Unsweetened Cocoa 
Teaspoon or a tablespoon of Sweetener (to taste so it depends how sweet you like it)
+ I add a teaspoon of oat bran but this isn't necessary


I add all the ingredients into a beaker because you have to store it in your fridge overnight,  also when putting into a beaker this means that if I run out of time in the morning I can just grab this out of the fridge and take it on the go.

Anyway I start by measuring out the oats then the yogurt then the milk adding them all to the beaker I then mix this all up. I then add the coca mix in and then add the sweetener, lastly adding the oat bran then mixing it all up.
As I have this all in a beaker, at the end I put the lid on and just give it a brisk shake,
now just simply place it in the fridge over night.

The affect of putting this in the fridge over night thickens up the whole mixture which makes it super filling and tastes amazing!

I love topping mine with raspberries!
  (I like to buy a big punnet of frozen ones and just un-freeze a couple over night each time I make the overnight oats just before bed.)
You can use anything you like to top your oats! 
I know alot of people like to add a dollop of peanut butter on theirs.
(if your being healthy though just check out the ingredients of your peanut butter)

-Also I would like to add if I don't use vanilla flavored yogurt then I do use a plain 0% yogurt then I just add a teaspoon of vanilla essence/extract to the whole mixture at the end and mix in - 

I hope that people will find this helpful and will hopefully help to influence and prove to people that healthy eating isn't all that boring and can be truly delicious!!

Thanks for reading!
Hope to be posting again soon :)
