Tropical Moringa Overnight Oats
Overnight oat recipes generally entail simple preparations but provide delicious and very nutritious meal options. Recently, we have been enjoying Moringa overnight oats with a bit of tropical flare.
After being in San Diego for over a year, our family finally made time to take on Iron Mountain a popular and scenic over 5 mile round trip hike. While we set no time records, we had a terrific morning. My 3 year old even made it to the top independently…very independently mind you (you know how 3 year olds are…). The 6 year olds were even running the last half mile back to the parking area. It was a terrific morning out and a great family experience that everyone enjoyed. No one even complained when Mommy realized she forgot to pack a “morale” boosting snack for half way point at the top of the mountain! I can’t claim the “no complaining” all the time…so perhaps it was influenced by our hearty Tropical Moringa Overnight Oats we had for breakfast ….or maybe it was just being in God’s great outdoors? We’ll let you decide.
Check out our new Tropical Moringa Overnight Oats combination it mixes the usual liquid, oats, nuts, and seeds with a mango, pineapple and coconut to “tropicalize” the flavor. It includes the desired amount of Moringa leaf powder which provides natural and enjoyable nutrition enhancement for increased energy as well as a serious boost to the immune system and support for long term health.
By soaking the oats, nuts, and seeds for 24 hours or at least the night before, one can benefit by helping to breakdown the natural phytic acid protection on these foods. Check here or google Soaking Grains and Nuts for more information. Depending how you choose to prepare, Tropical Moringa overnight oats can offer more digestible and absorbable nutrients Tropical Moringa overnight oats has a host of antioxidants packed into one easy to eat (even on the go) breakfast dish and the soaking can increase your bodies ability to utilize those nutrients. Win! Win!
Maybe on a whim or just because of time and simplicity, I actually just added whole almonds/ cashews in this dish. The outer shell softened making them easy on your teeth but still maintaining a light crunch to enhance your breakfast experience. This said, most any variation of would work here whether chopped, sliced or creamed. My girls preferred almond/cashew butter.
Again, we used unsweetened coconut shreds but large flakes would definitely work some tropical magic in your mouth as well.
Do you eat Overnight Oats? Have you ever incorporated Moringa? What combinations do you enjoy? We like to vary the mix-ins to keep things interesting but we definitely enjoy a tropical twist and at times a chocolate dish!
