Feeling satisfied with my BANANA O-BERRIES overnight oats, 
I attempted another recipe as mum has just plucked a homegrown mango right infront of our house.


1/3 cup of rolled oats (not to mistaken it with instant or normal oats)
1/2 cup organic vanilla low fat milk
1 cup of greek yogurt
1 mango (1/2 chopped to be mixed with oats, 1/2 as topping)
1/4 tsp chia seed 
1 spoonful of chopped raw nuts (unsalted)


Put oats, milk, yogurt, chopped mango, chia seeds and nuts into a jar.
I tried to be more creative by putting everything by layers.
But the chopped mango sunk into the yogurt.
Place in fridge overnight.
In the morning top with freshly cut mango and chopped nuts.

I really enjoy the taste of sweet mango with hint of vanilla flavor!
I could have this everyday!


This is my first attempt of preparing an overnight oats.

As I was unprepared and have not bought any milk, I used my protein shake as substitute.


1/3 cup of rolled oats (not to mistaken it with instant or normal oats)
1/2 cup protein shake berries flavour
1 cup of mixed berries yogurt
1 spoonful of crunchy peanut butter 
(I've added another spoonful in the morning as I love its creamy texture)
1 whole banana

Put all the above mentioned ingredients in a bowl or jar 
(covered or not covered)
Keep it refrigerated 
(to be eaten the next day, or it can last another day but the fruits may not be fresh)

Banana turned darker the next day - Advisable to cut it fresh and mix with 
the overnight oat before eating the next day.


I personally prefer using flavored milk or yogurt to enhance the taste of my oats.
But one can always opt to have plain milk and yogurt as well.

This bowl of overnight oats kept me full till my lunch at 2pm.

And it gave me a very good and "smooth" time when I went to the toilet that morning!


Sorry I've not been blogging that often lately. In fact, not at all since April 2014.

The main reason of me getting back to my blog is to post about my recent craze on oatmeal.

Mind you, not any ordinary oatmeal, but one that is healthy, delicious and attractive looking.

Overnight oat it is!!!

Now this is the recipe that I get to be a chef without firing up a stove!
Or burning down mum's kitchen!

I'm quite new at this and the info I am sharing may not be too in-depth or accurate.
So please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

What is overnight oats?

Overnight oats is basically oats that are soaked overnight with liquid that
is more commonly water, milk, yogurt, protein shake etc.

No cooking needed. 
Just put the oats with liquid into the refrigerator.

Most interesting part about overnight oats is the toppings!
Fruits, nuts, seeds, peanut butter, honey, raisins, imagine what you can do with these!

These toppings can be mixed together with the oats and liquid, 
or to be inserted the next day before consumption.

And if one stray from a healthier choice, 
some chocolates or ice-creams can be added into the overnight oats too!
I'm soooo gonna try that out one day! But it's gonna hurt my diet!

Will be working out on my overnight posting.. stay tuned!
