Strawberry and coconut overnight chia oats

A simple and delicious breakfast option, that you can throw together in a couple of minutes, leave overnight, then wake up to the loveliest breakfast the next day. If you're not too keen on the texture of chia seed pudding, this is a great, subtle way to enjoy the benefits of chia seeds whilst retaining the lovely oaty texture of overnight oats/porridge.

STRAWBERRY AND COCONUT OVERNIGHT CHIA OATS (serves 1)

Ingredients  

1/3 cup oats

1 tablespoon of unsweetened desiccated coconut

1 cup unsweetened plant based milk (I use Rude health almond drink - the combo of almond and rice milk makes it beautifully sweet)

2 tablespoons chia seeds 

1 heaped tablespoon of coconut yoghurt (I use coyo)

1/2 - 1 low fodmap serving of strawberries (approx 5-10 strawberries)

Method

Finely chop a few of the strawberries then combine with the the oats, coconut, chia seeds and milk and store in an air tight container in the fridge overnight. Top with coconut yoghurt, the remaining fresh strawberries and any other toppings of your choice.

Note: At the minute in the UK, strawberries are beautifully sweet so I haven't included any natural sugar/syrup to the recipe. Do feel free to adjust the sweetness to suit your personal taste.
