This Summer heat requires light meals. I’m leaning towards light breakfasts, light lunches and early dinner that requires no cooking. I am trying so hard to avoid the stove, the oven, and all other things that gives off any form of heat.
I don’t want to move because moving means sweating…………a lot.
My ideal day would consist of me inside the bedroom with the a/c turned on, lying on our bed that’s covered in fresh crisp sheets, and just basically be busy converting oxygen to carbon dioxide. Ahhh, that would be life, that would be the ideal day.
But in the real world, I don’t think I can do that. Turning the a/c in the bedroom for the whole day means having three kids : my daughter Ykaie and my two nieces Cyra and Cyvrine, with me inside the bedroom as well. I’d be blogging — well, semi-blogging — cause we’re going to watch Disney movies, and we’re gonna be playing with their toys. I’d be the customer ordering from their restaurant and they’d serve me pretend donuts and pretend brownies…..and we would not want to go out of the bedroom — EVER!
OF course, we’d go out eventually because we have to eat and like I said a while ago, I’m leaning towards light meals that requires simple or no cooking because of the heat.
This Blueberry Banana Overnight Oats is one of the easiest breakfast you can eat straight from the fridge. It’s no-cook and it’s deeeeeelicious! You just need oatmeal, milk, (any kind of milk you like), sweetener (sugar, honey, or agave), and any kind of fruit for flavor. You just have to mix it up and let it sit overnight in the fridge.The next day you get a nice bowl of flavorful oatmeal — it’s healthy too!
Thanks to my friend Rizza for the blueberries♥! I was just oggling at plump blueberries on facebook and next thing I know this was sent to my doorstep.
Blueberry Banana Overnight Oats
- 3/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup greek yogurt or plain yogurt
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- half a banana, mashed
- 1 tbsp honey
- fresh blueberries, sliced bananas, and walnuts for toppings
- Combine all the ingredients(except toppings) together in a jar or other covered dish.
- Mix well, Cover and refrigerate overnight or at least several hours.
- In the morning, when you’re ready to eat, take oats out of the fridge, add the toppings and enjoy!
- I made mine at around 11:30pm and then ate it at around 8am the next day.
Sounds delicious and healthy. Blessings, Catherine
It is definitely healthy and very delicious!
Yum! I like doing this ‘muesli’ with some yogurt and let it stand overnight before eating it for breakfast. A good bowl of chunky and tangy oats to start of the day! Great background! It gives a rustic vibe for your tasty oat! 🙂
what a lovely healthy breakfast – LOVE this!
Yeah, when the weather turns hot we eat light too. This sort of dish is perfect for us — tasty and filling, but doesn’t heat us up. Good stuff — thanks.
I can’t seem to stop eating it!
I eat light when its hot too. But living on the water in the Pacific NW it is pretty temperate. However I do love oatmeal
for breakfast and this looks kind of fun to try. Are those really GIANT blueberries in the center? Huge! I am sorry you had to get real in regard to your fantasy. Ha! Because your second description sounds like the unvarnished truth.
Just try it Carol! I’m sure you’ll love it.
yummy and healthy! =)
Thanks Mary Joy!
Mmmm, overnight oats are my fave! This is basically the same recipe I make for breakfast everyday! Did you mean to list chia twice in the recipe?
Oh no! Thanks for letting me know. I’ve corrected that.
Blueberry is one of the healthiest fruits around. But I guess it is also expensive in this part of the globe.
I know but there are times when I couldn’t resist buying them..
I’m not too fond of oatmeal, but I’ve tried making overnight oats and I actually like them better than cooked ones. Wish I had some blueberries, though heehee! This is also good with mangoes and bananas.
I’ve also tried it with mangoes, it’s very very good!
Ooh blueberries! Where to get them here na mura lang? 🙂
I buy them from my friend na fruit supplier. It’s cheaper lang by P20 from the supermarkets.
Looks super yummy!
It is! You have to try this Kim!
We used to eat oatmeal in the house for breakfast. Aside from easy to prepare, a healthy one.
Yup. I couldn’t agree more.
sorry I’m going to ask you questions:
1. How does a greek yogurt differ from plain one in terms of ingredient and overall taste of the meal?
2. Where do you buy your walnuts? I used to buy from SM Southmall but that one closed and I haven’t seen one around where we live now.
1. Greek yogurt is more tangy, has less sugar, and is thicker than plain yogurt because it’s strained to remove the liquid. I don’t think it has any effect on the taste of the meal but they say it has double the amount of protein than the regular one.
2. I buy my walnuts and almonds at SM Supermarket or Landmark. You can also buy them from Healthy Options but it’s more expensive.
This looks really, really yummy! I bet my kids will love this. Gotta try this asap! 🙂
I’m sure they will.
so yummy and so healthy. no guilt feelings 🙂
No guilt feelings at all!
a delicious,healthy and nourishing treat…anything with berries is a win win at home and this sure is going to be a favorite oat recipe,thanks 🙂
I’m sure you’ll love this!
Lovely! Have you considered starting your own restaurant? 🙂
I don’t think I can..hahaha.. but thanks for asking.
Hey Peachy! Thanks for sharing! I’ll try this! 🙂
I hope you like it.
Having the aircon on the whole day means tremendous electric bill. The Blueberry and Banana looks perfect with oats and milk.
It’s the perfect breakfast!
healthy and delicious! I’ve tried doing this and its really good! you can also try other combination of berries and fruits.
Yeah, i’ve actually tried some other fruit combination..
I have almost all the ingredients for this already! It’s just hard to find blueberries. I’ll just try it with just bananas first.
It’ll be just as good..
I can’t wait to create this on my own.! Blueberry’s are good for the kidney
And it has lots of anti-oxidants too!
Nice selection of food, all the ingredients are healthy, especially the blue berry, but isnt they expensive
the blueberries are quite expensive but I think it’s worth it.
This is so tempting!! Can’t wait to try this..
Omg this is perfect! I love overnight oats and bluberries so this is just perfect!
Once again you have whipped a mouth-watering concoction. You are definitely outdoing yourself everytime! Oatmeal, blueberries and bananas? Perfecttttt.
This is delish, Sam!
It looks very tasty and easy to do. This is perfect if you’re always waking up late than you’re suppose to and have no time for breakfast. Now there’s no more excuse to miss the most important meal of the day! I like how you photograph things. They look extra yummy 🙂
This Time I must say I love oats already mommy peach..Ang Saya Saya naman ng foods na ito..Easy peesy..??
Very healthy and yummy tapos easy to prepare pa.
