It’s Monday morning. The start of a new week and the start of a new day. If you’re not a fan of Monday mornings (who is?!) this healthy breakfast recipe is for you. Loaded with oats to keep you full until lunch time, chia seeds to keep you in fighting-fit condition and fresh, fruity tastes to remind you that it’s June 1st and summer is here! If there ever was a time for this overnight oats recipe, it’s Monday morning.
I’ve just discovered something new and amazing and I need to tell you about it! Well, it’s probably not new or really that amazing to you, but it is to me – agua fresca! Up until a couple of weeks ago, I’d never tried a single agua fresca recipe. I don’t drink fizzy drinks at all – unless they’re spiked with a bit of vodka – I always stick to boring old water, which I’m perfectly happy with.
It’s not often I post vegan recipes on Pink Recipe Box, but after spying these gorgeous strawberry mango smoothies, I just knew I had to make my own version. I didn’t want my recipe to be overly similar to Jessica’s, so I went down the non-dairy route and developed vegan smoothie recipes made with almond milk and coconut milk.
A few months ago I bought a packet of chia seeds, thinking that the only way I could make overnight oat recipes thick and creamy was by adding chia seeds to the ingredients. FYI, I have since learnt that using half natural/Greek yoghurt and half milk when it comes to the liquid works perfectly as an alternative. Anyway, I added chia seeds into my overnight oats one evening and then when it was time for breakfast in the morning I absolutely hated the texture. Two words sprung to mind – frog spawn.
If you’re on a New Year’s health kick and you’re getting fed up of drinking smoothies for breakfast and eating salad for dinner then I’ve got the perfect dessert recipe for you that will change your entire outlook on dieting.
