Raspberries and Cream Overnight Oats

It's so nice waking up to this!

When I can get my act together in the evening, I try to prepare something for breakfast the next morning. 

It's a lot easier than trying to cook stuff with a three (going on thirty) year old and a little man who has just starting walking - or more accurately, stumble trip stumble trip. 

Overnight oats, generally consisting of rolled oats mixed with chia seeds, milk, sweetener and some kind of fruit, is a nice change from porridge and nice and cool for summer. 

There are endless flavour possibilities. Well, not endless. One time, I tried to make orange coconut overnight oats using oranges and coconut milk - um, no. Not good. That'll teach me for being creative!  

We loved blueberry overnight oats for a while, but I made them a little too often and we got blueberry fatigue. 

These raspberry overnight oats are our favourite at the moment. The coconut yogurt makes them really creamy. I used Alpine Coconut Yogurtwhich I found recently in Woolworths.

Raspberries and Cream Overnight Oats (serves about 4)

1.5 cups rolled oats
2 generous tbsp coconut yogurt 
3 tbsp chia seeds 
3-4 tbsp maple syrup/agave syrup or to taste
3 cups non-dairy milk (I usually use combo of rice, soy and oat milk)
1 cup raspberries (I use frozen)

Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate overnight. 


  1. I keep hearing about this Woolworths coconut yoghurt and can't wait to track it down! This looks like an excellent way of using it too.

    1. Yep you should try it! I was abnormally excited to see it amongst all the dairy yogurts :)

  2. Oooh, coconut yogurt at woolie's? I will have to see if Townsville stores carry it. And these oats sound like a perfect summer brekky!

    1. I know how exciting huh?! Hope you can find it in Townsville!
