Vanilla Orange Overnight Oats

These vanilla orange overnight oats combine the bright citrus flavor of orange juice with hints of vanilla for a delicious, make-ahead breakfast. This post is sponsored by Trop50 juice beverage. 

If you’ve been reading EBF for any amount of time you’ll likely know that I’m a huge fan of quick, meal-prep friendly breakfast recipes, especially overnight oats. I think there was a year where I ate overnight oats almost every single day. Hence the reason I have a growing collection of different overnight oats recipes.

What can I say, I’m a creature of habit and when I find something I like I stick with it.

That said, almost every overnight oats recipe I have here on EBF uses milk or yogurt as the liquid and I thought it’d be fun to switch things up a bit with a citrus version using orange juice. I don’t know why I didn’t think to do this sooner because the orange vanilla flavor combo is so delicious and perfect for winter when we can all use an extra boost of vitamin C.

The orange juice I’m using for this recipe is Trop50, which has 50% less sugar and calories. It’s made with fresh oranges (not from concentrate) and adds such a lovely citrus flavor to this recipe.

As a health coach I get asked about ways to cut back on sugar all the time. One tip I always share is to check the beverages you’re drinking (besides water) because this is a place sugar tends to lurk. Things like coffee, tea, juices and even kombucha can lead to extra sugar consumption.

It’s also helpful to read labels and make sure you know all the alternative names for sugar (there are a ton!) when determining if a food item has added sugar. Jarred pasta sauce, nut butters and salad dressings are a great example of items where sugar is often added unnecessarily.

I hope you like this vanilla orange combination as much as we do! Enjoy.

Description

These vanilla orange overnight oats combine the bright citrus flavor of orange juice with hints of vanilla for a delicious, make-ahead breakfast.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup Trop50
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 cup of rolled oats
  • 1 cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 Tablespoon chia seeds
  • dash of cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped pecans
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange zest (optional)

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients in a container except chopped pecans and orange zest. Stir until well combined. Seal with a lid and place in the fridge overnight (or at least a couple hours).
  2. Bring out of the fridge in the morning and stir. You’ll notice that the oats soak up a lot of the liquid so you may want to add a little more almond milk before serving. Top oats with chopped pecans and orange zest.

      I haven’t tried this yet (it’s tomorrow’s breakfast), but I’m looking forward to it.
      Quick question, though: is the nutritional information for 1 serving or 2?
      I’m trying to lose weight and am counting calories.
      Thanks!

        The nutritional info listed is for one serving! Definitely come back and let me know what you think of them. 🙂

      Oats are a breakfast in our house. This looks like a great way to change up the routine. Perfect for a summer treat!

      I tried 1/4 cup almond milk and 1/2 cup orange juice, and it came out fantastic! It gets a much richer orange flavor that way, too.

      Just finished a week of these. It’s too soupy for my taste, even after doubling the chia seeds, and I ended up having to add 1/2-1 tsp of maple syrup. (Maybe because I’ve been shoveling too much junk food in my face the last week?) I also used plain almond milk, so I doubled the vanilla extract in hopes of compensating. I’m going to try this again next week, halving the liquid content. I still have a lot of that Trop50 OJ left. lol Thanks for the recipe! It’s been an interesting experience.

      Can I leave out the protein powder?

        Hi Danielle! You can definitely leave the protein powder out. Feel free to add a little more chia (to help thicken it up a little more) or maybe even some hemp seeds for extra protein!

      I like my oats hot! Can I just microwave them in the morning?

      I will definitely try this as it sounds yummy. I use almond milk all the time on cereal and i love it. It is good for you. Thanks for the recipe

      Hello Brittany:
      The recipe looks great. However, as much as I have tried, I really dislike all the fake milks, including almond. I threw it down the sink, it tasted so bad. Can this be made with regular 1% milk or would it ruin the consistency? Many thanks.

        Hi Laurel. You can definitely use 1% milk instead of the almond milk.
