Coconut, Chia & Strawberry Overnight Oats

IMG_8485Here’s a super simple creamy dreamy breakfast recipe inspired by one of my favourite health food bloggers, Ambitious Kitchen. Her website boasts scrumptious recipes for ‘sweet treats and healthy eats’. I have made a number of her tasty dishes, all of which have been absolute winners. Below are three of my all time favourite Ambitious Kitchen creations, which have been recreated in my kitchen many times over.

  1. Lentil & Quinoa Chili
  2. Crunchy Cashew Thai Quinoa Salad
  3. Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Brownies

IMG_8440This particular recipe calls for simple pantry staples, its quick and easy to prepare and tastes more like pudding than breakfast. It’s wonderfully creamy but not overly sweet and the strawberries add a welcome pop of freshness. As for the toppings, I chose sliced nectarine, passionfruit, almond butter and pumpkin seeds. Delish!
