Simple breakfast- overnight oats

Since discovering this quick and easy recipe a couple of weeks ago, I am hooked. I struggle to find nutritious meals that don't require 1000 ingredients and several hours of preparation, so when I tried these and made some adjustments to suit my taste its become a firm favourite breakfast of mine.
There are lots of different recipes online for this but here is mine, change it to suit.

75g oats
150ml liquid (I love coconut milk as it makes it taste like a sweet pudding)
Fruit (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and chopped banana work well)
Sprinkle of cinnamon

A good ratio to use is one part oats to two parts liquid.
I use rolled oats although you can use gluten free

Mix the oats and liquid well, it is best to use an air tight container such as a jar.

Most online recipes tell you to add the fruit in the morning, however I find that mixing it in with the oats and milk the night before gives it time to blend nicely.

Place in the fridge and enjoy the next day with an optional dollop of greek yoghurt.
