Overnight chia-oat puddings 5 ways

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am a huge fan of overnight chia oat puddings. I love not only that they taste totally delicious and are bursting with wholesome goodness. I also truly adore the fact that they keep my crazy mornings manageable – and me sane – without compromising on any of the delicious goodness I want to nurture mine, and my family’s bodies with.

Method           

  1. To prepare your chia-oats base, add your oats, chia seeds, almond or other plant-based mylk and mashed banana to an airtight container or jar you can close and stir well. Make sure the banana is mixed in well and there aren’t any big lumps.
  2. Then add the rest of the ingredients excluding the toppings. If you added cocoa, spices or spirulina, give your chia-oats mixture another good stir until the rest of your ingredients have blended in well and your pudding is free from lumps. If you added in fruit, stir only slightly to simply mix but not mash the added fruit.
  3. Cover your chia-oats variation with a lid and leave in the fridge overnight.
  4. The next morning, add your toppings of choice and enjoy.
