Kiwi Vanilla Protein Overnight Oats & Why You Might Have Trouble Digesting Oats

Kiwi Vanilla Protein Overnight Oats & Why You Might Have Trouble Digesting Oats

Let’s describe this breakfast in a few words:

  • Creamy.
  • Thick.
  • Rich.
  • Filling.
  • Satisfying.
  • Full of antioxidants, fibre, protein + energizing amino acids + good carbs!
  • Naturally sweet + delicious.
  • A breaky for champs!

PSA: Do you have trouble digesting oats?

If yes, it could be for one of two reasons:

  • Are your oats certified gluten free? Oats are naturally gluten-free but if the brand you buy isn’t certified, they may be manufactured in a facility that also processes gluten + be exposed to cross-contamination; if you have a gluten intolerance or sensitivity, try buying certified gluten-free oats to prevent the risk of digestive issues.
  • Like most grains, oats contain an outer layer that contains enzyme inhibitors, which explain why they’re hard to digest for some with weaker digestive systems; ; buy sprouted ones or try soaking them or buy them sprouted to remove enzyme inhibitors + facilitate digestion.

Now, without further ado, THE RECIPE!


  • 1/3 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup plant-based milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • A scoop of vanilla vegan sprouted protein (I use Botanica Health)
  • 1/2 tsp. pure organic vanilla extract
  • 1 small kiwi, diced


  • Add all the ingredients except toppings to a small glass container + mix.



  • Refrigerate overnight. It’ll thicken up so don’t worry if it’s a bit liquid.
  • In the morning, remove from the fridge, stir gently & top with toppings! I used dehydrated raw papaya, chia seeds, berries, frozen banana + Ceylon cinnamon!
  • ENJOY!
