Yin Yang overnight porridge + Berry smoothie bowl

The Finnish plant mylk brand Planti has asked me to create some recipes using my favourite products from their range, including plant mylks and yogurts. I always keep some oat mylk in my fridge (whenever I’m not making my own nut mylk) because it’s simple to use, tastes good and it’s also super easy to get from the stores here in Finland. Planti’s oat mylk is made from Finnish oats so it’s local and it also doesn’t have extra sweeteners in it (oat mylk is pretty sweet naturally!), so I was happy to give the product a try. Another reason why I got interested in this brand is that each year Planti donates an amount from the profits to good causes like charity, humanitarian aid and medical research (this is because they are owned by a fund). So, I’m going to be trying different Planti products during the next few months so keep your eyes open for more recipes to come. 🙂

This first recipe is a twisted version of my choc overnight quinoa in a jar – poured into a bowl and mixed with a raspberry-lingonberry smoothie (because don’t we all love smoothies in a bowl). I normally use whatever flakes I have on hand, I think quinoa works best for this one but buckwheat or oats are fine too. This is a super easy busy morning recipe as you can prep almost everything the night before..!

How to do it?

One thought on “Yin Yang overnight porridge + Berry smoothie bowl

  1. This is such a great idea! I love the yin and yang concepts about nutrition. You really need to find balance in your body through food and health practices–plenty of rejuvenation but also a lot of rest in order to sustain it! While oats are generally a yin food because they grow underneath the ground, simply refrigerating them overnight makes them more Yang-friendly because they’re colder and not too heavy!
