Sometimes, having breakfast on hot summer days can become a challenge.
Overnight porridge is an ideal solution for a healthy, tasty and nutritious breakfast even in summer.
It is prepared in a few minutes, it is left to rest in the refrigerator for the whole night and the following morning breakfast will be ready.
Let’s see how to make the overnight porridge and make it extremely tasty and summer thanks to choco coco cream and coconut flakes.
We will also use yoghurt to make this breakfast more protein and satiating.
Properties of white yoghurt
White yoghurt is a food source that brings several positive effects on our well-being and health.
A large number of studies have shown that regular consumption of yoghurt is able to increase the number of lactobacilli present in the intestine. Lactobacilli are among the most beneficial microorganisms for our intestinal health. At the same time, yoghurt consumers have less entrobacteriaceous, bacteria associated with a pro-inflammatory state and a higher risk of chronic disease.
What is the yoghurt
In Italy, there is a strict law that determines what can be sold as "yoghurt".
Yoghurt is such if produced from cow’s milk fermented with bacterial strains of only two microorganisms: Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus termophilus. They must still be alive and viable at the time of consumption and up to the expiry date, in quantities of at least 10 million bacteria per millilitre.
The more acidic the yoghurt, the higher it's content of lactobacilli and total bacteria: to have the maximum content of live lactic ferments, we choose a natural and acidic white yoghurt!
Beware of labels
In recent years, supermarket shelves around the world have been filled with healthy yoghurts that have nothing left. Packaged with attractive packaging and aimed at recalling the idea of health, with images of meadows, cows and fresh fruit and juicy, these yogurt jars have many grams of sugar (even more than 5 sugars per 100 grams).
So do not be fooled by the packaging, always read the labels and prefer white yogurt, natural not sugared.
25g Oat flakes Baby+ 25g Hazelnut oatmeal
200ml vegetable milk without added sugar (or cow’s milk)
100ml of water
15g Iso Fuji isolated protein powder
100g low fat or whole white yogurt
Sweetening agent (optional)
1 tablespoon Choco coco cream
This is a basic recipe that will allow you to make a creamy porridge, and you can use it as a basis for many variations. In a saucepan put the oats, both flour and flakes, milk and water and a pinch of sweetener. Leave to cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. When it starts to boil, lower the heat and stir constantly to prevent it from sticking to the bottom. When it is thick and creamy just pour it into a cup and enjoy it hot.
Allow cooling to room temperature.
Apart, in a bowl, mix the yoghurt and powdered protein. Pour the protein yoghurt on the porridge, now the chocolate and coconut cream and finally a sprinkling of coconut flakes.
Leave in the refrigerator overnight.
You can fill it with fresh fruit and dried fruit.
Porridge is an extremely versatile dish that is also suitable for cold preparations such as overnight porridge.
Perfect as breakfast or snack to be enjoyed in summer, and enrich with fresh and genuine ingredients such as yoghurt and fresh fruit.
