Mocha & Cold Brew Overnight* Oats with Califia Farms

Earlier this month, I, as Borrow My Blender, catered the Pure PR Autumn Winter Press Day on behalf of Califia Farms. Part of my brief was to recreate an overnight oats breakfast bowl recipe and the other part was to bake five of my Coconut Coffee cakes (find the recipe here).

It turned out that when I tried the overnight oats recipe, it didn't really work well in my eyes so I changed up the quantities a little to make sure the consistency was good. In fact, I loved the revamped recipe so much that I've been living off of it for over a week now so thought I would share it with you... and I have two amazing versions...

Mocha Overnight Oats


50g rolled oats
1/4 cup (approx 60ml) Califia Farms Cocoa Noir
1/4 cup (approx 60ml) Califia Farms Almondmilk
Drizzle of agave / honey, to taste
1/2 banana
25g (approx 12) blueberries
2 tsp peanut / almond butter
1/2 tsp chia seeds

Method: 

Measure your oats and pop them in a bowl.

Pour over your coffee mixture and then your almond milk. Give it a stir and leave to soak while you sort out your toppings. Now is a good time to drizzle on your agave or honey if you think you'll need it.

Slice the banana into circles. Wash your blueberries. As best you can, lay your banana slices on the top of your oats to one side. Dollop your nut butter in the centre and pop your blueberries on the other side.

Now simply sprinkle with the chia seeds and you're good to go!


To make the regular Cold Brew overnight* oats:

50g rolled oats
1/4 cup (approx 60ml) Califia Farms Cold Brew
1/4 cup (approx 60ml) Califia Farms Almondmilk
Drizzle of agave / honey, to taste
1/2 banana
25g (approx 12) blueberries
2 tsp peanut / almond butter
1/2 tsp chia seeds

Method: same as above.

The * next to overnight is to denote the fact that you actually don't need to make these the night before. They're super simple and quick to make; I've even thrown it in a Tupperware made for soup and had my oats on the tube when I'm short for time. It kinda kills two birds with one stone in that you get a hearty breakfast and you get your morning caffeine fix... win, win!

The Califia Farms Cocoa Noir drink is literally a dream! I tried it for the first time when I was prepping the breakfast bowls and even spotted them in my tiny local Sainsbury's... I read somewhere that a mocha is the perfect morning beverage to get your brain going due to the mix of caffeine and cacao! They also make a "black and white" version (so no chocolate) if that's more your thing.
