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.


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!
