Notes on ingredients
- Rolled oats: Always make sure to buy certified gluten-free rolled oats to avoid possible cross-contamination.
- Rice Milk: Substitute with cashew milk, soy milk, oat milk or almond milk. If you don’t follow plant-based (vegan) diet, you can use regular milk.
- Frozen ripe bananas: Frozen bananas will make it extra thick and creamy, similar to a milkshake. Check How to freeze bananas.
- Fresh or frozen raspberries: Raspberries are one of my favorite berries. They are highly nutritious, rich in fibre, and packed with powerful antioxidants. If you don’t have raspberries on hand, you can always substitute other berries, such as strawberries, blueberries, or blackberries.
Oats on 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.
How to make it
NOTE: To make overnight oats, it’s ideal to soak them in plant-based milk overnight, or at least for a couple of hours. The soaking process reduces the level of phytic acid which can inhibit the proper absorption of minerals link zinc and iron. By soaking them, your body will absorb the nutrients much better.
Soak rolled oats in rice milk overnight.
In the morning, place overnight oats into a high-speed blender. Add frozen bananas and fresh or frozen raspberries and blend briefly until smooth.
Serve in bowls and top with fresh or frozen berries.
HOW TO FREEZE RIPE BANANAS
Bananas are best frozen when they’re ripe or slightly overripe (spotty). Here is how to do it:
- To freeze banana slices, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Peel your bananas and cut into 1.5 – 2 cm thick slices.
- Arrange them in a single layer on the baking sheet and freeze until the bananas are solid, for about 2 hours.
- Once frozen, peel the banana slices off of the parchment paper, and place them in a freezer-safe container.
- Put them back into the freezer until ready to use.
- Make sure you seal the container properly to prevent them from turning brown.
- Store bananas in the freezer for up to 3 months.
