  1. Put the oats in a large plastic container with airtight lid. Add 350ml milk and the yogurt, then mix well. Fit the lid and chill overnight.
  2. For the compote, put the frozen fruit, vanilla, lemon juice and 1 tbsp water in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 mins. Stir through the maple syrup (if using). Set aside to cool completely and thicken. Transfer to a plastic container. 
  3. When ready to serve, stir the bananas and remaining milk through the oat mixture. Layer the oat mixture with most of the compote into serving bowls or glasses. Top with the remaining compote and a few fresh berries, if you like.

Make ahead tip: The oats and compote can be made ahead and each chilled separately for up to 3 days. Simply continue with step 3 when ready to serve.
