IMMUNE BOOSTING BREAKFAST RECIPE
Overnight oats are my favorite breakfast for busy mornings. There are so many different flavor combinations and topping ideas that you can try so you can have a different breakfast every day of the week. This time I went with the combination of mango, banana, coconut cream, turmeric, and lemon. It’s such a delicious combo! It’s filling, thick, creamy, refreshing, and so, so good. If you want to drink it rather than eat it with a spoon than just add some extra milk.
Mango turmeric overnight oats can be enjoyed for breakfast, brunch, or as an afternoon pick-me-up. They are high in fiber, vegan, gluten-free, and soy-free. Plus, they will take you less than 10 minutes to make.
To make overnight oats, it’s ideal to soak them in plant-based milk overnight, or at least for a couple of hours. By soaking them, your body will absorb the nutrients much better.
MEET THE INGREDIENTS
- Rolled oats – always make sure to buy certified gluten-free rolled oats to avoid possible cross-contamination.
- Rice milk
- Turmeric powder
- Lemon juice
- Coconut cream
- Maple syrup
OATS AND A GLUTEN-FREE DIET
Most people with coeliac disease or gluten intolerance can tolerate gluten-free oats with no problems. However, a small percentage of people may still react to avenin – a protein in oats similar to gluten. For these people, even certified gluten-free oats may be unsafe. If you develop any new symptoms after adding gluten-free oats to your diet, it’s best if you talk to your dietitian or a doctor.
Another problem can be cross-contamination. Even though oats are naturally gluten-free, they are often contaminated with gluten because they may be processed in the same facilities as gluten-containing grains like wheat, rye, and barley. Therefore, if you have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, always make sure your oats are certified gluten-free to avoid any cross-contamination issues.
TURMERIC – THE AMAZING GOLDEN SPICE
Turmeric is a great spice with amazing health benefits. It contains curcumin, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that gives the spice its bright yellow color.
WAYS TO BOOST CURCUMIN ABSORPTION
In order to get the maximum health benefits out of turmeric, you will have to add black pepper to the mix because curcumin is not easily absorbed by the body. Black pepper contains a compound called piperine, which when combined with turmeric, increases the absorption of curcumin by up to 2000%. With just 1/20 teaspoon or more of black pepper, the bioavailability of turmeric is greatly improved, and turmeric’s benefits are further enhanced.
Another way to increase its absorption is to consume turmeric with a healthy source of fat such as avocado, nut butter, olive oil, or nuts.
DIFFERENT FORMS OF TURMERIC
Turmeric is available in several forms: fresh root, turmeric powder, and turmeric supplements.
While typically consumed in powder form, you can also buy a fresh turmeric root. The fresh root is brighter, more aromatic, and a bit less bitter than the powdered form. When using fresh turmeric in place of turmeric powder, you should use three times as much of it.
Also, if you buy turmeric in supplement form, make sure the supplement contains piperine, which substantially increases the absorption of curcumin.
WAYS TO ADD TURMERIC TO YOUR DIET
Turmeric is an amazing spice that will add unique flavor to all your dishes, be it sweet or savory. Start your day right with this delicious Gingerbread Turmeric Latte. Or make yourself a delicious Mango Banana Oatmeal Parfait. If you are into sweet treats, you can try this Mango Turmeric Cheesecake or refreshing Protein-Rich Mango Lime Pudding.
HOW TO MAKE MANGO TURMERIC OVERNIGHT OATS
Soak rolled oats in rice milk overnight or for at least a couple of hours.
In the morning, place soaked oats into a high-speed blender. Add mango, banana, coconut cream, 100 ml rice milk, lemon juice, and turmeric powder. Blend briefly until smooth and creamy. You can adjust sweetness by adding 1 tablespoon of maple syrup.
Add more milk if needed until you reach the desired consistency.
Serve in jars and garnish with mint leaves.
TIPS AND SUBSTITUTES
Coconut cream: Chill full-fat canned coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight so that you can easily separate cream from the liquid. The cream should be firm enough so that you can scoop it out with a spoon.
Rice milk: You can use other plant-based milk like almond, oat, or soy.
