Hot berry overnight oats

Overnight oats have been a bit of a ‘thing’ over the last couple of years and they’re one of the more fashionable foods that we actually love at Nuush, whereas normally we’re deeply suspicious of trends 🙂

It only takes 2 mins to mix up the creamy oat mix before bed and in the morning there it is, all done, and you only need spend 3-4 mins heating the berries. Beautifully creamy with a hit of sharp sweetness; filling and healthy.

Overnight oats tick all the boxes!

Ingredients

  • 50g porridge oats
  • enough whole milk to just cover them, the creamier the better, so Jersey milk is good here
  • 1 heaped dessert spoon of Greek yoghurt. We like Tim’s Dairy Greek-style.
  • 2 squeezes of mild clear honey
  • handful of frozen berries, frozen blackberries work really well
  • dash of double cream if you feel like it!

Instructions

Mix the oats, milk, yoghurt and one squeeze of honey in a deep cereal bowl, cover and leave in the fridge overnight.

In the morning heat the berries with another squeeze of honey and pile on top of the oaty mix.

Finish with a swirl of cream, and maybe a few mixed seeds.

Nutrition Info

Oats

Oats are particularly high in manganese which is great for healthy bone formation, healthy skin and helping to control blood sugar. Oats are a wholegrain, that means the good stuff hasn’t been removed. Wholegrains are an important source of B vitamins and fibre.

Oats are a great source of the soluble fibre called beta-glucan. That’s what makes porridge kinda viscous and it stays quite viscous as it passes through you, sweeping up any excess cholesterol as it goes. A happy gut is at the heart of good health!

Oats do a special thing – as they pass through your intestine their bulk presses against its muscly walls. It presses back in response and by doing so its muscles get stronger. Oats are literally like a sparring partner for your digestive tract!

Berries

Berries are not only wonderful and versatile gems of sweetness, they also provide us with a myriad of nutrients, helping to maintain a well-rounded diet and good health. They’re packed to the brim with flavonoids for fighting inflammation and cell damage. They’re also a great source of fibre, but only when eaten as the whole fruit; juicing fruit breaks the fibre down before your body has the joy of doing so. Fibre gives your good gut microbes their favourite food and helps them to proliferate and spread their magic right through your system all the way from brain to toes. They also provide vitamin C for healthy skin and connective tissue as well as immunity.
