Tropical Overnight Oats

Tropical overnight oats are a healthy, portable breakfast with a taste of the tropics. Enjoy the unique combo of oats with creamy banana, sweet pineapple, delicious mango and toasted coconut.

My love for overnight oats is still going strong and I’m figuring most of you are right there with me! I shared my Strawberry Shortcake Overnight Oats earlier this month and today I have a version that combines all your favorite tropical flavors in one bowl. Think banana, pineapple, mango and coconut — oh yeah!

TROPICAL OVERNIGHT OATS VIDEO:

And then start day dreaming about sunshine, your toes in the sand and waves rolling in… double oh yeah!

I don’t know about you, but I could totally see myself living on a tropical island. Seriously! I’ve always wanted to be a surfer girl. I crave warm weather. I adore tropical foods… and tropical cocktails. Omg, have you ever had a Painkiller or a Bushwhacker?!? Way too sugary for more than one, but they’re so good!

When we were on our honeymoon in St. Croix I almost convinced Isaac that we needed to move there. I was like, “You could totally get a job at the local Montessori school, I could open a salad shop on the beach. It will be awesome.” Alas, we came back to Richmond and life went on.

Maybe we’ll retire there.

In the meantime, we can still visit tropical places (as research for our retirement spot) and enjoy a taste of tropical flavor at home. It’s not exactly the same, but it will do for now.

This bowl looks kind of fancy, but as you know overnight oats are SUPER easy to toss together and perfect for crazy mornings when you know you won’t have time to make something before running out the door.

I’m keen on this version because it’s loaded with fresh fruit, has a good amount of protein and tastes absolutely delicious.

Tropical Overnight Oats

Description

Tropical overnight oats are a healthy, portable breakfast with a taste of the tropics. Enjoy the unique combo of oats with creamy banana, sweet pineapple, delicious mango and toasted coconut.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt (I used Greek, but you could use almond or coconut for a non dairy option)
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1/2 cup frozen or fresh pineapple, chopped into bite-size chunks
  • 1/2 cup frozen or fresh mango, chopped into bite-size chunks
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened shredded or flaked coconut (toasted* or raw)

Instructions

  1. Add oats, almond milk, yogurt, mashed banana, 1/4 cup pineapple, 1/4 cup mango, chia seeds and vanilla into a bowl. Stir well to combine. Cover container with a lid or plastic wrap and place in the fridge overnight.
  2. Take the container out of the fridge the next morning and stir the mixture. You’ll notice that the oats and chia seeds soak up a lot of the liquid so you may want to add a little more almond milk before serving. Portion overnight oats into two bowls, top each with remaining pineapple and mango chunks and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of coconut. Enjoy!

Notes

*I toasted my coconut flakes to give them a golden color and extra crunch, but if you don’t have time for toasting, that’s totally fine. Regular shredded coconut or coconut flakes work too!

  1. I am a huge fan of overnight oats and see that recipes to make them are gaining lots of attention on the blogs. It made me think, why actually only oats, from entire variety of grain products, are left in the fridge alone over night. Do you think quinoa flakes or millet flakes could work in this recipe as well?

  2. I tried having a similar conversation with Ulysses after visiting Cabo for a week in January. Obviously, since I’m still in dreadful NY, it didn’t pan out so well. Let’s just keep pretending with tropical deliciousness like these oats!

  3. I tried your strawberry shortcake overnight oats the other day and game changer. I grab it and go in the morning so right now you are my favorite person ever for that recipe. Now I get to try this one 🙂

    Thanks for keeping us inspired with your yummy recipes!

  4. I could totally live on a tropical island! My husband and I have become obsessed with watching Island Life and Caribbean Life on HGTV and dream about living on the beach some day. Until then I’ll pretend by starting the day with these tropical oats!

  5. I’ve been out of the overnight oats game for awhile and this is just what I needed to motivate me to try them again. Looks delicious!
