Island Overnight Oats

Oh my, you have to try these!  I’m a huge fan of overnight oats.  I prefer them to hot oats any day.  There’s something about cold creamy oats; it’s almost like eating desert for breakfast.

There’s snow outside this morning! Don’t get me wrong, I love the snow and how pretty it makes everything.  It means Christmas is just around the corner but I’m not ready to say goodbye to the warmer weather (I can see summer around the corner… almost…6 more months).  Today I’m craving some summer love and so I put together this tropical breakfast last night so I could eat it this morning .  Mangos and coconut always remind me of summer and what’s not to love?! Combined with the heartiness of oats it will keep you feeling full all the way to lunch.  They perked me right up, almost tricking me into thinking I’m on a warm and sun filled beach.  I made a big batch so we could enjoy them for a few breakfasts.  It also makes a great grab-and-go snack.

The best part about these is that you can add anything that you like to them.  I like adding fresh fruit and some nuts or granola on top for some crunch.  Give these a try I guarantee they will brighten your day.

    I love overnight oats! They’re so easy for busy mornings when I’m running out the door. I usually just throw some berries on top but your tropical version looks so delicious! Looking forward to trying this 🙂

    Love that you are writing a blog! (I’ve been trying without success to get my sister to write one with me for years though she did even buy me a book on blog photography). My one recent attempt at overnight oats ended up kinda “chalky”, not sure why …
