What Are Mango Overnight Oats?
Mango Overnight Oats is the tropical version of the classic overnight oats loaded with fresh mango and coconut.
Like all overnight oats recipes, it’s made by soaking oats overnight in coconut milk to create a delicious creamy texture.
How To Make Mango Overnight Oats
Making overnight oats is not only easy, it’s quite a fun little activity that can be enjoyed by children and grown-ups alike.
- Fresh Mango – Use a ripe mango that is soft to the touch to guarantee a good sweetness. You can use thawed frozen mango cubes as well, but nothing beats fresh fruits.
- Coconut Milk – While you can use any plant-based milk, coconut milk and mango is a delicious tropical combination.
- Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats – Pick gluten-free certified oats if you are gluten-intolerant.
- Chia Seeds – chia seeds are a superfood that contributes to making overnight oats very creamy and consistent.
- Unsweetened Shredded Coconut – Or coconut flakes.
- Coconut Yogurt – Or any unsweetened yogurt you love.
- Vanilla Extract
- Liquid Sweetener – This is optional since mango is already very sweet. I recommend starting with no sweetener. Then, taste the recipe the next day and sweeten it to taste.
Making The Mango Milk
Compared to other classic overnight oats recipes, this mango overnight oats recipe is made from mango milk.
First, add fresh diced mango, coconut milk, vanilla extract, and sweetener to the jug of a blender.
Blend on the high-speed setting to form a smooth creamy milk.
Making The Overnight Oats Mixture
Then, in a large container add the dry ingredients: oats, shredded coconut, and chia seeds.
Stir the dry ingredients together then pour the mango milk on top of them.
Stir the mango overnight oats mixture to combine and close the lid.
Transfer the mixture to the fridge and give it a quick stir after an hour to prevent the seeds and oats from sinking to the bottom.
Serving Mango Overnight Oats
The next morning, or at least 3 hours later, take the container out of the fridge.
Transfer some of the mango overnight oats mixture into a jar and alternate with a layer of coconut yogurt.
Top the jar with pieces of fresh mango and coconut flakes.
You can store the Mango Overnight Oats for up to 4 days in the fridge in an airtight container or in 8-ounce glass mason jars.
Freeze them in airtight jars and thaw each jar in the fridge the day before.
You can make the following substitutions to make these Mango Overnight Oats work with the following allergies:
- Gluten-Free – Make sure to use certified gluten-free oats.
- Coconut-Free – Replace the coconut milk with another dairy-free milk such as almond milk. Swap the coconut yogurt for soy yogurt or cashew yogurt.
