Get-Up-And-Go Overnight Oats

Get-Up-And-Go Overnight Oats. This is a great basic recipe because it’s so simple: it means you can truly listen to your hunger, as this pot of goodness can be taken with you to be eaten when your hunger grows. Make a whole batch of these oat pots so you’ve got some delicious healthy meals ready ahead of a busy week.

Prep time: 5 minutes (plus overnight soaking)

Serves 1


¹⁄3 cup (80 ml) milk

¹⁄3 cup (95 g) Greek-style yoghurt

¹⁄3 cup (35 g) rolled (porridge) oats

2 teaspoons honey

1 teaspoon natural vanilla extract

2 tablespoons mixed seeds, such as linseeds (flaxseeds), sunflower seeds, pepitas (pumpkin seeds) and chia seeds

¹⁄3 cup (45 g) frozen berries (optional)


Stir together the milk, yoghurt, oats, honey, vanilla and mixed seeds in a jar. Top with the frozen berries (if using) and let it soak in the fridge for at least 3 hours or preferably overnight.



You can experiment and swap the honey for half a shredded apple or 1 tablespoon of raisins or currants, add a handful of chopped nuts or play around and add different seasonal fruit. If you don’t have frozen fruit, fresh chopped or a bit of dried fruit is great.

• Look for a Greek-style yoghurt with probiotics.

Use certified gluten-free oats if you need to make it gluten free and nut milk or coconut yoghurt to make it dairy free and vegan.
