  1. How would I heat it the following day, or from the freezer please. I’m hopeless at cooking times and temps sorry. Thank you,

  2. If you were to freeze this, how would you recommend reheating? Would microwave be ok? If so how long for? Thanks x

    1. Hi Cat
      Yes microwaving is fine for reheating. The time would depend on the power of your microwave, an 800w would probably take a minute or so. Just make sure it’s hot all the way through before serving

  3. How can you drizzle powder? Or should it be mixed with hot water?

    I know that sounds like a dull question but I can’t open the video.

  4. Just made these for the first time. I didn’t have orange choc shot so I just used the normal one and a orange muller light with dark chocolate! It’s a welcome change! Yummy

  5. Have just made this – amazing! I only had the orange mullerlight yoghurt, plain not orange chocshot and no real oranges for zest but it didn’t matter. It was delicious – I’m struggling not to eat the other half straight away!

  6. Hi!
    Can I make this recipe the night before and then keep it in the fridge until the next morning and heat it back up in the microwave please?

    1. Hi there, I have just been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and would love to know how many carbs are in overnight oats, struggle with low carb breakfast ideas … many thanks for any ideas …..
