These delicious mango overnight oats are the perfect breakfast! Vegan + gluten free, these overnight oats are healthy and filling, while still easy to make.
This breakfast is made almost entirely from my pantry and freezer. Seriously! Oats, milk, yogurt, and frozen fruit are all you need to make this healthy and filling breakfast. If you feel like getting fancy, some sweetener, a healthy dash of cinnamon, and little splash of vanilla take it over the top into creamy dessert for breakfast type of meal. Sounds good to me!
Even though I’m working from home, I still enjoy prepping these overnight oats for breakfast. There is something so comforting about a big bowl of oats and fruits. Not to mention, I like going to bed the night before knowing that my cup of tea and breakfast are ready for me the next day. I’m not a morning person so any shortcut I can take before noon is a good thing!
Allergy Friendly Overnight Oats
The cool thing about overnight oats is how versatile they can be for all dietary needs. First, make sure you are using gluten free oats if you are allergic or sensitive to gluten! Next, use what ever type of milk you enjoy the most. I’ve made overnight oats with cow milk, soy milk, rice milk, and (ironically enough) oat milk. To make them extra creamy, adding in some yogurt, also of your choice, can be a game changer. Finally, add the extra toppings you like. Some people might enjoy almonds in this, but being allergic to tree nuts, I’ll pass on that.
Freezer Friendly Mango Overnight Oats
Using fruit from the freezer means that you will be guaranteed the freshest fruit possible. Most fruit is picked and frozen the same day, so a ton of nutrients are still in the fruit, waiting for you to enjoy! Taking them straight from the freezer and letting them sit in the fridge overnight, your fruit will be perfectly thawed and you shouldn’t have to worry about warming it in the microwave.
If you’ve never enjoyed a mango before, think of them like a super juicy peach that went on a tropical vacation. Mangoes are one of my favorite fruits and they are filled with vitamins A, B6, and C. Not to mention they have folate and fiber.
And if you purchase them frozen you don’t have to worry about chopping them up, and they are pretty budget friendly in a frozen bag. And since mangoes are on the Clean Fifteen list, you don’t need to splurge on the organic variety either. Conventional is just as good.
