Overnight Oats are quite popular these days. Minimal preparation and almost zero cooking time makes it an ideal choice for breakfast. All you need is to mix few ingredients a night before and you will have delicious lip smacking breakfast next day.
Summer time is almost here which means season for yummy juicy mangoes. I love mangoes and their inclusion in any dish makes it desirable too 😋. I feel this is the best way to have oats as you relish each and every bite of it without frowning upon the blandness and texture of oats. This overnight oats is so appetising that it feels as if you are almost eating a dessert🍨. Also it is a no cooking or fireless recipe.
It is 19th day of lockdown in India due to Covid-19. Hoping that we all get through this phase safely with our families 🙏. Everyone is in the house now & with all the meals preparation and snack breaks in between 🙆, kitchen is literally functional 24 hours. I have now decided to prepare 2-3 jars of these overnight oats every night before sleeping as you can have them in breakfast, evening snack or even for a late night dessert craving. It tastes just like pudding and so much healthy too.
This recipe includes all the four ingredients which our often considered as essential part of healthy breakfast- Fruits, Oats, Milk, Nuts & Seeds. Oats are good source of fibre, protein and are high in mineral like selenium, magnesium, zinc and manganese etc. Mango is also a good source of dietary fibre and and also rich in Vitamin A & C. Nuts & seeds also provide complex carbohydrates, protein and other essential vitamins to body.
The variations in these overnight oats are endless. If you are looking for vegan version the milk in this recipe can be replaced by coconut / almond / soy milk. You can choose nuts and seeds as per your own preference. Also, for kids who are too fussy to eat anything. you can garnish this pudding with chocolate chips to lure them😉. I had earlier shared a Vegan Chocolate Oatmeal smoothie bowl which also tastes so yummy and is healthy too.
For all the mango lovers, I have shared few more mango recipes on the blog which you can checkout here 💁:
