Overnight oats is my favourite quick breakfast. Some weeks are just so busy that I know I wont have enough time to prepare breakfast. So I usually make bulk overnight oats on Sunday which lasts me until Wednesday.

Sometime I get bored of plain cinnamon banana overnight oats, so I thought I would see whats in season and try something new. Strawberries are in season at the moment in South Africa and I thought I’ll try that. My favourite dessert is anything berries and cream so strawberries and cream it was!

The double thick yoghurt is the ‘cream’ part. I love starting my day off with some yoghurt because of all the probiotics in it.

I then decided to make a type of parfait with overnight oats.

First layer:Chia seed pudding
