Step by Step Instructions

  • ¼ cup wholegrain oats

  • ½ cup almond, oat or rice milk
  • 6-8 frozen raspberries
Step 1

In a small ramekin dish or cereal bowl, combine the oats, almonds, chia seeds and coconut. Stir in the milk and sprinkle the frozen berries on top.

Step 2

Cover and leave in the fridge overnight. Serve with extra milk, coconut yoghurt, fresh fruit, or a sprinkle of cinnamon or pumpkin seeds, as desired.

Chef’s tips

To save preparation time, make a large batch of the dry ingredients and keep in a glass jar or airtight container, then scoop out around a 1/3 cup of oat mixture and add the milk and frozen berries as before.

You can prepare up to 3 bowls of this at a time, keeping them soaking in the fridge and shaving minutes off your morning routine.


I prefer to use white chia seeds for this recipe purely for the aesthetics with the pale oats, coconut & almonds, but black chia seeds have almost the same nutritional profile as white and will work just as well.

This simple recipe ticks so many boxes, containing soluble fibre, essential fats, protein, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
