Lemony and creamy overnight oats to put a sweet and refreshing zing into your morning.
Pop all the ingredients except the berries into a bowl, or a jar if you’re taking it to work; mix it all up and put it in the fridge overnight.
In the morning add the berries and a small blob of extra lemon curd, and the lemon zest, find a peaceful place, sit and enjoy! It’s also really nice with a few chopped walnuts.
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!
We live in a world where lemonade is made from aritificial flavouring and furniture polish is made from real lemons.
