Have you ever thought of adding kiwi fruit to your overnight oats? Kiwi fruit adds a slightly tart but sweet flavor to your overnight oats, bringing an interesting twist to your breakfast. This is one breakfast combo you can get addicted to, I promise you! It's really that good.
Let me guess, you love kiwi but you don't know what to do with them apart from eating them whole.
Here I am sharing with you a very sweet vegan overnight oats with kiwi fruit. I am sure you'll love it or at least I hope so, it's a mouth-watering breakfast.
Overnight oats recipes are easy to make for anyone, especially when you've got busy mornings. What I love about oatmeal recipes is how you can customize them with different toppings.
This versatility in making oats means that there are so many fun ways to get a healthy breakfast in a short amount of time. And that's not all!
The fruit you add gives lots of nutritional benefits to your body. Fruit and oats is a perfect combo to get your day started right.
Adding kiwi fruit to your toasted overnight oats will offer you a whole breakfast full of nutrients that will keep you going for hours without snacking.
Kiwi fruit benefits
- You obviously have been told to eat oranges for their vitamin C. I am recommending that you eat kiwifruit instead if you're looking to supplement yourself with vitamin C, because kiwi's vitamin C content is actually higher than that of oranges.
- Besides, kiwi fruit will give you a good amount of vitamin K which is good for you to build strong bones. You'll also get some vitamin E, some minerals like potassium and copper.
- Phytonutrients in kiwi have the ability to protect your DNA from damage caused by oxidation.
- Kiwifruit is high in dietary fiber, combining it with oatmeal, you get a high dietary fiber breakfast that can help relieve your bowels and thus reduce constipation.
- The vitamin C will help your body in neutralizing free radicals that can cause damage to your cells leading to inflammation and other health issues.
- These dietary fibers also feed your gut microbiome which is so important in keeping you heaalth in general.
Are you one of those who can't eat a kiwi fruit because your tongue itches?
If your symptoms ends there, then I've got a solution for you, you can now enjoy kiwi without feeling that effect of itching tongue.
My son has never liked kiwi, and while I could let it go when he was young, this kiwi season I had to use my most persuasive techniques to get him t him to eat them, marketing to him the kiwi's health benefits.
But every time he could' ve a raw kiwi fruit, he'd not even finish his overnight oats due to itching tongue.
I thought of a solution and came up with the idea of warming the kiwi just a little in a pan, this reduces the acidity. Since then, he now enjoys his vegan overnight oats with kiwi fruit without an itching tongue.
So maybe you too could just solve this issue by heating your kiwifruit in a pan for 3 mins and voila.
I hope this tip can help you, and even if you've no problem with kiwifruit, warm your kiwifruit with some syrup or honey if you ain't vegan and serve them with overnight oats.
To make kiwi fruit even sweeter, I add some agave/maple syrup. This is entirely optional for you, but it really takes these vegan overnight oats to another level.
I bet you'll love them, especially on a cold winter morning.
Note though that some kiwi allergies needs medical attention
In this overnight oats with persimmon recipe, I show you how to toast your rolled oats to make them even tasty.
You can opt for toasting this vegan overnight oats with kiwi fruit or you can go ahead the classic way, but we love them warm, they 're really awesome.
