Chocolate blueberry overnight oats for glowing skin

Chocolate blueberry overnight oats for glowing skin

We need zinc to help our skin regenerate and look its best, and what better way to give your skin that boost than with quick and easy overnight oats – and did we mention the chocolate? Naturopath Chloe Wilkinson shares her go-to recipe for boosting glow. 

Did you know that our skin cells regenerate over a period of 28 – 30 days? It’s a process that plays an important role in how our skin appears on the surface.

To ensure our skin cells regenerate effectively, we need to make sure our bodies are equipped with the right nutrients.

One of the most important nutrients for our skin is Zinc. Zinc plays a huge role in supporting our immune function. It helps support us through periods of high stress and is essential for skin cell regeneration.

Including zinc-rich foods in our diet is a great place to start.

Our recommended dietary intake is 12mg, and this recipe starts us off with approximately 5mg, getting us almost halfway there before we even walk out the door. Win!

Chocolate blueberry overnight oats


  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1 cup of nut or non dairy milk (your choice coconut, oat, almond, etc.)
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoons of buckwheat groats
  • 1 tablespoon of hemp seeds
  • 1 tablespoon pepitas
  • 1 tablespoon cacao
  • 1 handful of nuts – chopped (almonds, walnuts, brazil, cashews)
  • 2 teaspoons of fresh local honey (or to taste)

To top

  • Fresh fruit seasonally available to you – blueberries, strawberries, figs, peaches, raspberries
  • Coconut yoghurt
  • 90 per cent dark chocolate (shaved)
  • Chia seeds, pepitas, hemp seeds, sesame seeds – you pick!


1. Into a large jar, add the oats, chia seeds, buckwheat, hemp seeds, pepitas, nuts and cacao.

2. Place the lid on and give it a good shake to combine.

3. Add in your milk of choice (my current favourite is oat) and honey, close the lid and shake once more.

4. Pop it in the fridge overnight.

5. In the morning, put everything into a bowl, top with coconut yoghurt, a sprinkle of extra seeds, your choice of fruit and, if you’re feeling it, grate on some good quality 90 per cent dark chocolate. Or just add all your toppings into the jar (if you have room) and save on the washing up!
