Tropical Overnight Oats

Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 1 cup oat flakes
  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 mango
  • Dash of cinnamon

Preparation

1. The night before, put the oats, chia seeds, coconut milk and water into a glass jar (or your preferred container) and whisk well. Then mash banana with a fork and mix into the mixture. Close tightly with a lid and place in the fridge overnight.

2. In the morning cut up fresh mango and place over oats, sprinkle with cinnamon. You can serve it in bowls or eat it straight from the jar. Enjoy!

Note: instead of 1 cup of full fat coconut milk and 1 cup of water you can just use 2 cups of light coconut milk. Or if you like very rich and creamy consistency, you can just use full fat coconut milk all the way. But I personally find using 2 cups of full fat coconut milk too heavy for this recipe.
