Bored of plain-old porridge for breakfast? Try making this tasty vegan-friendly overnight oats recipe the night ahead, instead. The oats are a source of a soluble fibre called beta-glucan, which has been shown to have a cholesterol-lowering effect. Apple has a prebiotic effect, meaning it feeds the healthy bacteria in your gut. The walnuts, pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds are a source of heart-healthy fats and blueberries are a powerful source of antioxidants and vitamin C, meaning that they can help support your immune system. So, tuck in!
150ml Rude Health Almond Drink or Oat Drink
90g rolled oats
60ml apple juice
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp walnuts
1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
2 tbsp sesame seeds
1 Grate the apple and mix with the Almond or Oat Drink, rolled oats, apple juice and cinnamon. Cover and place in the fridge overnight.
2 Chop the walnuts and mix with the pumpkin seeds. Serve the Bircher muesli with the sesame seeds and blueberries.
