Overnight Porridge



Overnight Porridge

Overnight porridge (or cold porridge) is a no-cook version of the classic oat porridge. Unlike the traditional recipe, it must be prepared in advance because it needs to soak overnight, but in the morning it will be ready to be enjoyed for breakfast! The version we present here is enriched with blueberries, Greek yogurt, and almonds, but you can vary the ingredients using other types of fresh and dried fruits or adding, for example, seeds, cinnamon, chocolate, coconut flakes, or granola, just to name a few. In addition to being fresh and nutritious, overnight porridge is also very easy to make and is therefore perfect for starting the day in the best way!

How to store

Overnight porridge can be stored in the refrigerator for one night, after which it is recommended to consume it.


Oat bran has a finer texture compared to oat flakes: the former is more suitable for this preparation method, while the latter is more recommended for the cooked version of porridge.

We chose rice milk because it is naturally sweet and is therefore ideal for preparing porridge without added sugars. However, if you prefer, you can use cow's milk or another type of plant milk.

If you wish to sweeten the porridge, you can add white or brown sugar, stevia, honey, or maple or agave syrup.
