These Blue Overnight Oats are creamy, dreamy and bittersweet. The butterfly pea flower tea powder infused with almond milk is magical and transforms oat bowls into something so enchanting, it makes breakfast super exciting – and the toppings of course!
Oats can get a little repetitive when eaten day in day out and I find that changing their colour and swapping up the toppings a bit really keep things spiced up. I also used the butterfly pea flower powder and almond milk mixture to make a chia pudding and it worked a treat, especially on top of the oats bowl.
If you love oats for breakfast, but have had a few too many oat bowls, you’ll be pleased to hear that I have a whole bunch of Oat Recipes that are free of overnight oats!
