Looking to change up your morning meal? Try these three summer breakfast recipes for a fruity kick

For most of us, porridge provides a warm and creamy bowl of goodness that is perfect for those cold, winter mornings. By the time summer comes around, we’ve given it the breakfast back-seat. Lately, however, overnight oats has become a popular substitute, providing a versatile and nutritious breakfast. Here, the breakfast experts at Flahavan’s share three summer, fruity breakfast recipes that serve up to three people – perfect for preparing in bulk, or sharing with the family.

Method

  • Place the oats in a large glass jar.
  • Add enough milk to cover the oats.
  • Seal the jar with a lid or cling film and leave in the fridge overnight.
  • Pour the mix into three glasses the next morning, layer with the mango and pineapple pieces, followed by flaked coconut and a drizzle of honey.

  • 2 fresh peaches cut into pieces
