Overnight Oats Recipe No 11
Please note that this is what I did and please feel free to take the idea and play with it yourself.
THE NIGHT BEFORE make up the fruity oats layer, soak the cashews and put the can of coconut milk in the fridge (earlier if possible, I always keep one in there!)
The base if the same as last weeks fruity style overnight oats
1/2 cup oats
2/3 cup non dairy milk
1 tbsp ground flax seed
mixed fruit, fresh or frozen
Mix the oats, milk and flax in a serving bowl. Then add fruit and mix up a little. I used frozen and had blackberries, cherries, strawberries, raspberries, redcurrants and blackcurrants and leave overnight in the fridge.
1/2 cup cashews soaked overnight, and then drained
2 tsp vanilla essence or use the seeds from a vanilla pod
2 tbsp almond milk
Blend until you get a custard like consistency. Then place on top of the fruity oats.
Top with coconut cream. Coconut milk when kept in the fridge goes into a solid cream and a liquid. Take out the cream off the top and drink the liquid either as a refreshing drink or in a smoothie. You don't need much of this and it can be added as is or whipped up. So you will have extra left over for making other wonderful things. I used it in the chocolate squares usually, but I think it will go in a smoothie this week.
Sprinkle with a dash of cocoa.
Makes one large portion.
I plan to do one (occasionally two) new overnight oats post every week, sometimes quite traditional and sometimes a pudding style one. Probably on Thursday or Friday mornings, so please follow my blog if you want to get new overnight oats breakfast ideas. My other overnight oats recipes.
