Overnight oats is by far one of the most simplistic and easiest breakfasts to make. I love that it requires no cooking and can be prepared in literally minutes and I have the freedom to add any of my favourite ingredients to make a healthy and delicious breakfast! That said, I combined all the healthy ingredients such as, rolled oats, chia seeds, maple syrup, vanilla extract, milk kefir and almond milk to keep me full and content!
You might be wandering about milk kefir, it is a fermented beverage, quite similar to yoghurt but has extraordinary health benefits , studies suggest, that kefir can boost the immune system, aid in digestive problems, it is great for bone health and may even combat cancer! I will be uploading a video very soon on how to make milk kefir, this superfood is truly amazing!
