Two of my favourite things Pineapple and Coconut combined to make this delicious Pina Colada Overnight Oats.
Oh how I love a Pina colada cocktail, but do you know how many calories are in one of those delightful drinks? - approx 250 calories, that is over 12 syns - YIKES!!
It isn't really surprising though, as they taste sooo good.
and so when thinking of different combinations for overnight oats, which I have been loving lately, I just had to come up with a Pina Colada version.
I already gave you this amazing Pina Colada Baked Oatmeal, so why not overnight oats?
Overnight oats are perfect for when you are rushed for time, as you can make it up the night before and it's just a quick grab and go in the morning.
Hey don't just keep these for breakfast though, if you save your healthy extra b choice they make a really good dessert too.
Fresh Pineapple is sooo lovely. But it can be hard to pick a juicy ripe one.
A few tips I have picked along the way is to smell the bottom of the pineapple, if it smells fragrant like pineapple, that is good sign that it is ripe, you also want to make sure that it has a nice golden colour and is not too green and doesn't feel squishy, as that could be a sign it is overripe and the last thing you want is to cut into that lovely pineapple to find it has spoilt. Also you can gently tug at the leaves, if it comes away easy, that can also be a good sign of a ripe pineapple. I use these methods when picking a pineapple and so far so good. So give it a try next time you buy a pineapple and see if it works for you.
For the coconut flavour I use coconut extract and unsweetened shredded coconut, you can use a syn free coconut flavoured yoghurt instead if you can get some.
All that is left to decide is whether to enjoy this for breakfast or dessert.
