Strawberry overnight oats made with Optiwell yoghurt drink, for a higher protein breakfast, to keep you fuller for longer. Packed with fruit flavour.
Do you fall in and out of love with social media platforms? I do. New Instagram Stories have got my interest this week. I’m fascinated with the disposable snapshots of life, nuggets of reality in the otherwise super stylised Instagram world that I love so much.
Twitter is fine for getting in touch and Facebook changed the whole face of my blog once upon a time when a post of mine went viral there. But Pinterest, Pinterest is the social media tool that has really become part of my every day life. Need an answer to a problem, a nail art idea or to learn how to make a garden planter out of match sticks? Head on over, it’s all there for you, 100 million monthly users know where it’s at.
Pinterest is where I first discovered one of my most favourite breakfasts; overnight oats. Avocado toast is the preserve of Instagram breakfast snappers, whilst Pinterest users love an overnight oats idea.
Basic idea is you mix oats and yoghurt or milk, leave overnight and in the morning it’s kind of like ready made porridge. Cold porridge sounds a bit gruel-esque, bircher muesli if you’ve ever had that is probably more accurate. It’s a brilliant blank canvas to add heaps of other flavours to and oats are a super breakfast to keep you full until lunchtime.
As you might remember, I’ve been working with Optiwell to come up with some recipes using their yoghurt drink. It’s perfect for overnight oats as it gives them a delicious fruit flavour, adds protein to the mix and I find that the soaked oats have a better texture than with using thick yoghurt.
So tell me, are you an Instagram breakfast sharer? Or a Pinterest morning fuel searcher?!
