Since beginning of last year, I was inspired by @honeybeesweets.sg to try Overnight oats! Basically is whole grain rolled oat soaked with milk and yogurt overnight in the fridge! Gradually I begin to appreciate this fuss free healthy breakfast choice and since then I has been making it for breakfast regularly. Some of my friends and colleagues were influenced by me and all started to make overnight oat as well.
Check out my Instagram #wenovernightoat for all my overnight oat creations! Since I always have queries on how to prepare overnight oat on IG and Dayre so I decided to share it on my blog today!

This is my usual portion, you can increase accordingly to your preference. As you got use to making, you can adjust the milk and yogurt proportion to your preference for the kind of texture you like. More yogurt will be creamier and more milk will be more watery. You can play around with the flavour by adding green tea and chocolate powder if you are using plain milk and yogurt. My all time favourite is using Meiji Low Fat chocolate milk and Marigold plain yogurt or Mundella greek yoghurt
Overnight oat basic recipe:
