Why I Love This Recipe!

With the warm summer months coming no one wants a bowl of hot oatmeal, so overnight oats is the perfect morning meal! It’s chilled in the refrigerator overnight so it can be ready to go as you dash out the door.

Oats are filled with fiber, this recipe has 16.5 grams of fiber in just 1 cup of oats! You will certainly be filled up. Plus the berries will give you another extra boost of a few grams of fiber as well!

The frozen fruit gives it a sweet and tangy taste, with the melting fruit overnight giving delicious melted juice to add extra flavour!

There are so many options that you can throw into this frozen fruit overnight oats, so if you don’t have one of the ingredients in the recipe, no problem! Simply swap in some of your favourite ingredients too!

Ingredients

  • Old fashioned oats only! Don’t use quick oats, they create a not so pleasant texture if you leave them overnight. Old fashioned oats tend to hold up nicely and still have some texture in the morning.
  • Any type of frozen fruit will do for this recipe! I used President’s Choice Mixed Berry which I love, it has blackberries, strawberries, blueberries and raspberries in it. But if you prefer to have others such as pineapples, melons, anything you add will help give it more flavour!
  • I like using non-fat milk for my recipes with overnight oats, I find it adds a good dose of protein while not adding a ton of extra calories to the mixture. But feel free to use any type of milk that you like!
  • Optional Ingredients: You really can add just about anything that you want to this recipe! Overnight oats are nearly impossible to mess up. But be mindful of how many calories you’re throwing into the mixture as they do add up!

Storage

Frozen fruit overnight oats can stay in the fridge I recommend for maximum 2 days or 48 hours for optimal flavour and texture. After that it will likely not taste great. You can make it and have half one day and half the next.

Make sure that when you place it in the refrigerator that it is in a sealed tight container. I prefer to use either glass bottom Tupperwares or mason jars that have a nice tight seal on them.

Oats

Oats have a glycemic index score around 55 making them a low glycemic index food! They are filled with fiber which helps to keep you full for a long time, reduce blood sugar spikes, and good for heart health.

Non-Fat Milk

This is a great source of protein and calcium without all the added fat to it. It is low on the glycemic index score at only 32, making it the perfect addition to your breakfast! In 1 cup you’re getting around 7 grams of protein, which is a nice boost to start the day.

The health benefits will vary based on what type of frozen fruit you have, but I used a variety of berries which means they’re low on the glycemic index scale, ranking between 25-40. Also offering a big boost of antioxidants to my diet too!
