You will still keep saying a lot of vegan stuff on this blog. Even though I am off from the diet, I still go for it when I don’t want to feel bloated or just want to go light. Very recently, a colleague of mine started Ayurveda for his skin treatment and now whatever I bring for them to eat, I have to make it vegan. 😀 So I still continue to explore it as much as I can. In fact, the thought that you can make desserts and dishes without eggs, milk and butter is definitely an encouragement. There was a time when baking without eggs and butter would have been considered “sacrilege” but not any more! 😀
But we ain’t baking anything today, but sharing with you an “overnight smoothie”. You must have read of overnight oats, but smoothie? Yes, the only difference is that instead of having the bites of oats and the extras like flax and chia, you blitz everything into a smoothie, pour into a jar and keep it in the fridge “overnight”. I don’t know who invented it, but surely someone who wanted to have oats but didn’t want to bite it in, and who was lazy to cook! 😉 With Ramadan coming in very soon, this is a very handy recipe to make for your Suhoor meals too. Off to the recipe…
- ⅔ cup mixed berries (I used strawberries, blueberries, raspberry and blackberry)
- ¼ cup rolled oats
- 2 tbsp milled flax
- ½ cup almond milk
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- Add all the ingredients into a blender and blend till smooth and thick.
- Pour into a jar, close the lid and allow it to rest in the fridge overnight.
- Enjoy it for breakfast the next day morning!
