About Mango Overnight Oats

Mango Overnight Oats is a delicious and healthy no-cook breakfast recipe in which rolled oats are soaked overnight (or for 6-8 hours) in milk, yogurt, and mango puree.

Soaking oats in liquid overnight breaks them down and allows them to soak up all the flavors. It also helps break down the phytic acid and improves the absorption of nutrients.

Adding mangoes to the oatmeal gives it a sweetness and a tropical flavor. The texture of the mangoes also helps to make the oatmeal creamier.

Although I like to serve overnight oats chilled, you can heat them for a warm breakfast. Top the oats with your choice of topping and serve for a healthy and delicious breakfast.

Ingredients

Oats – Overnight oats are best made using rolled oats (old-fashioned oats). However, instant oats (quick oats) can also work. Keep in mind that instant oats can become a little mushy after soaking.

DO NOT use steel-cut oats to make overnight oats. They do not get softened by just soaking; they need proper cooking before you can eat them.

Yogurt – Use plain yogurt or Greek yogurt to soak the oats. I like full-fat yogurt as it makes my oats rich and creamy, but skim milk will also work fine.

To make the recipe vegan, replace dairy yogurt with plant-based yogurt like coconut yogurt, soy yogurt, etc.

Milk – I like to use whole milk (full-fat milk) to soak the oats as it makes them creamy and rich. Skim or low-fat milk can make this mango oatmeal recipe healthier.

To make the recipe vegan, replace the dairy milk with plant-based milk, such as almond, oat, soy, or coconut milk.

Mangoes – You will need mango puree and mango cubes.

To make the overnight oats, choose ripe and juicy mangoes. My favorites are Indian varieties like Alphonso or Kesar.

Mexican ones like Atalufa mangoes are also great.

You can use any other variety of ripe and juicy mangoes that are easily available.

Instead of fresh mango chunks, you can use frozen mango pieces.

I like to use my homemade mango puree, but you can also use frozen or canned mango puree.

Others – You will also need chia seeds, honey, and vanilla extract.

Replace honey with brown sugar, maple syrup, or agave nectar for vegan.

If you want to add extra protein to your overnight oats with mangoes, stir in a scoop of protein powder before storing it in the fridge.

Cover the bowl with a lid and refrigerate for 6-8 hours or overnight.

If you are in a hurry, you can soak the oats for at least 2-3 hours. They will not be as soft, though.

Add more milk if the oats are too thick, and mix well. The overnight oats should have a pudding-like consistency. Top with your favorite toppings and serve.

Frequently Asked Questions

What else can be added to the mango oatmeal recipe?

You can add other fruits like bananas, strawberries, or papaya.
Add spices like ground cardamom, ginger, or cinnamon.
Stir in some cocoa powder if you want a chocolate flavor.

Can I make mango oats without milk?

You can make the oats with water, but they will be less creamy. You can use almond milk, coconut milk, or another plant-based milk for a vegan option.

Can I make mango-flavored overnight oats without yogurt?

Yes, you can make overnight oats without yogurt. However, the yogurt does add some creaminess and protein to the dish.

Storage Suggestions

Mango overnight oatmeal can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

If you are meal prepping, you can make a big batch at the beginning of the week and then enjoy them for breakfast all week.

I like to transfer the oats to individual serving mason jars. This way I can just grab one jar on busy mornings and have my healthy breakfast on the go.
