Mango Strawberry Banana Overnight Oatmeal

Mango Strawberry Banana Overnight Oatmeal

Overnight oatmeal seems to be all the rage these days, so I decided to see what all the fuss was about.  The recipe I found is from The Pinterest Project (this is a fantastic site – so many great recipes and ideas!)  The oatmeal took almost no time to put together and was so yummy! It was so nice to have breakfast taken care of when I woke up.  I will be definitely be making these often!  Even my kids liked them, and they hate oatmeal! Score one for mom!

Mango Strawberry Banana Overnight Oatmeal – 1 serving

1/4 cup uncooked oatmeal

1/3 cup milk

1/4 cup vanilla yogurt

2 teaspoons chopped nuts (I used almonds)

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon sugar or honey  (I used sugar)

1/4 cup chopped fruit (I used Mangoes, Strawberries and Bananas)
Simply mix all the ingredients together and place in a covered container in the refrigerator overnight.  In the morning, it’s ready to go!

 

The total cost for one serving came to $.32 – not a bad price, and it was very filling (Did I mention yummy?  These are so good!).  My kids liked that they could choose what fruit they wanted to use.  I like that too, anything to get them to eat a healthy breakfast!

Have you made anything from Pinterest?  What are your quick and healthy breakfast recipes?  I’d love to hear from you!

  1. Since I’ve never heard of this, I need a little more help with it. Do you put it together and then in the refrigerator over night. The next morning the oatmeal is “cooked?” Then do you heat it up or eat it cold? Just put it in the microwave? I would like to try it although Hubby is the best “oatmeal maker” in the whole world. I don’t know what it is about his oatmeal, but it is so yummy. Thanks for sharing this.

    • Sorry about that! Yes, you mix it all up and place it in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, it’s ready to go – you eat it cold. It tastes like a yogurt/granola parfait (except not a crunchy). Hope this helps!

  2. i used to make it years ago when i was easing my way into raw food ~ didn’t realize it’s a rage now. i forgot all about it so thanks for reminding me ~

    i’ve got to go check out pinterest ~ i’m really late to that party

  3. What kind of oatmeal did you use? Think it would work with steel cut oats? (They usually take a little longer to cook)
    Either way, I will have to give this a try. I guess I’m the only one that hadn’t heard about it before today! lol

    • I used regular old-fashioned oats – not the steel cut variety. I think they would work with those too, although the finished product will be a little chewier. If you try it, I would love to know how they turn out!

  4. I love oatmeal, but on school mornings it’s often takes too much time to make. (Yep, we’re always rushing out the door trying to get to school on time :0) So I definitely want to try this one out. Thanks for sharing another great recipe!

    • Your welcome! The best part about these is how simple and quick they are. It literally took me 5 minutes to put together, and that includes cutting up the fruit!

  5. Just beautiful! I was not a big fan of oatmean until I started adding fruit to it. I like the combination of strawberries and mangoes. Unfortunately in India they are not available in the same season. Both have a pretty short season, and months apart!

  6. My favorite way to eat overnight oats is when I have an almost empty nut butter jar. You mix all the ingredients in the jar(almond butter is the best, in my opinion) and the next morning you get a real treat.

  7. I’m not a Pinterest user or a raw foods connoisseur, and somehow (though I LOVE oatmeal), I have never heard of overnight oatmeal before! Definitely need to make some now, though! This sounds delicious.
