riceflakes-1

I know my last couple of posts have been very foodie! Now that I’ve just had my last dermatologist appointment for this year (hopefully…) I think I’ve just been taking a real keen interest in what I’m putting into my body. I’ve also been on a mad fitness mission- there’s nothing like exercise to make you feel better when you’re going through a bit of a rough time. Life is certainly very up and down at the moment.

I’ve been trying to cut out carbs in the morning, however as I’ve been on a few longer runs now that my knee is healing, sometimes I need something a bit more substantial to keep me going. I’ve already posted my overnight oats blog post here, but recently I bought some rice flakes from good old Sainsbury’s and they are LUSH! You can adapt this recipe in SO many ways- use different milk (coconut, almond) or add some regular oats into the mix, any kind of fruit- the variations are endless! I add some yogurt to mine to sweeten it up too.

My favourite milk of choice at the moment is Oatly Organic  and Rice Dream.  You can buy both from most supermarkets.  The Rice Dream milk makes everything taste so creamy- when mixed with the rice flakes it’s a bit rice pudding-ish, which I bloody LOVE!  Pudding for breakfast?  Hell yas!

You’ll need:

  • A jar/ small bowl
  • Rice Flakes- 35g
  • Rice Milk (or any alternative)
  • Dairy-free Coconut yogurt (or any alternative)
  • Raisins
  • Blueberries
  • Blackberries
  • Dark choc to sprinkle on top- I use Green & Blacks Organic 85%
  • Anything to decorate/add flavour- I used Cacao powder, Linseed and Chia seeds (as always)

Method:

Add the flakes to the jar, pour enough milk to cover the flakes and almost fill the jar.  Add a heaped tablespoon of yogurt and stir.  Mix in some blueberries and raisins and any other fruit.  Cover and leave over night and that’s it!  The longer you leave it the more the flakes soak up the milk.  Sprinkle on top all the other ingredients to add crunch and flavour and that’s it- SO yummy!  Breakfast is served bitches…

Why rice flakes?

They are easy to digest, low in fat and sugar and calories, and keep you full for ages!  They’re a lot harder in consistency than oats, they’re a good source of essential minerals and vitamins.  You can also eat them if you are lactose or gluten intolerant.  Boom!

 

Have a great week,
