MY OVERNIGHT OATS 3 WAYS

Version 3

Hello Goa Flow-ers

Breakfast is my most favourite meal. I could eat it all day long. I have been loving overnight oats and having fun with layering into a parfait. It feels healthy, nourishing and fills me up for hours.
This version is a bit thicker, and it might be what some call a Bircher … I am not sure, i call it Goa Style Overnights Oats. When you put your name on it, it can anything you want it to be, right?

At the moment i rotate between the 3 i offer in this post and on AnitaGoaTV on YouTube (video below).

#1 is a basic version i call Basic but never Boring.
#2 is a more decadent one i call Creamy Crunchy Layers Of Goodness
#3 is a smooth operator i call Green, Lean & The Secret Sauce. [It’s always about the sauce, isn’t it?]

Below i share with you the recipe for my overnight oats.  I tend to always have Goa Granola, hemp seeds, fig jam, chia jam and yogurt, frozen fruit, spinach at home so i alternate and use what i have.

I love to add Flax seed oil for a nutty flavour and Omega 3. I also add an Ayurvedic herb called Ashwagandha powder which is good for keeping the immune system strong and balanced.

You can of course choose your own ingredients and layer as you wish. Come up with your own creation, and name it!!. If you do, please tag me on Instagram with #anitagoatvfood so i can see what you have made 🙂

Sometimes i triple the recipe, (like i do in the YouTube video) for three breakfasts. It stores very well in the fridge, but most of the time i make a single serving; this is what i offer you in the recipe for this blog post.

Below you will find the ingredients and portions i used for each, and below the recipes you’ll find the YouTube video to watch and get inspired.

NOTE: I don’t add any sugar. Everything in them are from natural sugars. If you need it to be more sweet add your own sweetener. I also keep it dairy free and gluten free.

Honestly, i am horrible at writing out the recipes. Actually i hate it. It’s so left brain and hard for me to be this detail oriented. When i make it, i just mix and match and eyeball everything. Please use your own common sense and create your own from my creation. That in essence is being a Goa Flow-er, ha ha ha.

Bon Appetite. I hope you find inspiration and joy in these 3 variations of Goa Style Overnight Oats.

Love, Light & Eternal Flow,
Anita Goa 🙂

GOA STYLE OVERNIGHT OATS

I use recycled glass jars. If i need to take it with me i can easily pop a lid on and take it to-go.

{The ratio i use of oats to milk is 1:1}

1 dl oats
1 dl milk of your choice (i use oat milk)
1 tbsp black chia seeds
1 tbsp hemp seeds

Mix and refrigerate overnight

#1 BASIC BUT NEVER BORING

*mix 1 tbsp flax oil with the Goa Style Overnight Oats
*Add Granola (Goa Granola recipe hereMaking Granola is super easy. I highly recommend you make your own then you know exactly what’s in it, and you can put whatever you like in it.
*Add Figg’in Delicious Fig Jam (for my fig jam, i soak dried figs in water overnight, blend them in the blender with the water it has soaked in and add mint to it. It’s so good. Make sure you don’t add too much water, you don’t want it runny, rather put in less and then add to it as needed).
*Milk (i use oat milk)
*Top with blueberries and hempseeds

#2 CREAMY, CRUNCHY LAYERS OF GOODNESS

*Goa Style Overnight Oats
*Goa Granola
*Yogurt (i either use a dairy free yogurt of either coconut yogurt or a soy yogurt with coconut flavour like in the video)

      Ashwaganda is an Ayurvedic herb, an adaptogenic; meaning it can be good to calm down nerves or give you energy, depending on what you need.I find it helps to give a balanced under current feeling of energy in my body. I put it in my smoothies, and in my overnight oats 🙂
