Recipe: Slimming World Overnight Oats

As some of you might be aware, I have had a very on/off relationship with Slimming World. I have started probably 4 or 5 times before, lost lots of weight then stopped going and the weight piled back on. Some of this is because due to my ill health I cannot do a lot of physical activity and some blame can just be put on me being greedy and liking food too much.

A few months back I went to a routine hospital appointment and they basically told me I was morbidly obese (according to their charts) and needed to lose 4 stone or my health would deteriorate faster and so my new journey with Slimming World began

My consultant was really welcoming and I felt determined to lose the weight this time. So far, I have lost 12.5lbs and feel really motivated to keep going. One of the reasons in the past as to why I kept giving up was I felt bored with the meals I had been doing, especially breakfasts. Normally I would just stick to weetabix or porridge, but then I found a recipe called "Overnight Oats" and my breakfast routine is now something I look forward to.

The ingredients are:-

35g porridge oats
200g fat free natural yoghurt
Mixed fruits


1.Layer the porridge, yoghurt and fruit in a jar or bowl.

2. Cover and put in the refrigerator overnight so the porridge absorbs all the yoghurt.

3.In the morning mix all the ingredients together and then if you want, add more fruit.

As you can see I use natural plain yoghurt, but you can use any flavour yoghurt you like, even mullerlight yoghurts. I also use frozen strawberries, blackberries, blueberries but you can also use bananas, peaches., the different varieties you could do are endless.

This breakfast is so delicious and does not even taste like a breakfast! It truly feels like you are having a yummy dessert for breakfast. If you have not tried Overnight Oats you should,they are really healthy and really delicious.

If you have a recipe that you like to make and think I might enjoy it, please leave it in the comments below I would love to read your recommendations.

Speak to you soon xx
