HEALTH BENEFITS

Overnight oats does wonders for your health especially the gut health because of it’s resistant starches and prebiotics! It is rich in fiber, protein, antioxidants, a wide range of vitamins and minerals, especially Vitamin A and C from the orange colored fruit.

Soaking it overnight helps to break the starches down, that means it’s easier to digest and to absorb more efficiently. Also, mango is low in calories but high in fiber, protective antioxidants and aid digestion.

WHAT MILK TO USE?

We used regular whole or 2% milk which makes it taste utterly delicious. Coconut milk or almond milk are also great options.

BEST JARS TO USE?

 Traditional mason jars are perfect for overnights oats. They come in various sizes depending on the quantity you make and the screw top lid is secure and super easy.

How long does it need to soak?

We recommend at least 8 hours for good softness and the perfect chew. But, sometimes we have let it soak for about 4 hours when in a rush or sometimes in the morning for a tasty mid afternoon snack, especially on a hot day.

Can I use other sweeteners instead of sugar?

We loved the taste of white sugar when paired with tangy greek yogurt, cardamom and mango. However, other healthier sweeteners like honey, maple syrup, agave, brown sugar, jaggery can be used but it does alter the taste.

Can you use frozen mango?

Frozen mango is generally not as sweet when compared to the fruits that are available in the peak of summer. So, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND using sweet ripe fruits. However, if you wish to use frozen fruit, then thaw completely before using.

How long does this last?

It can be refrigerated for up to 3 days. If not serving the next day, then we recommend adding mango just before serving.

Can I eat it hot?

Sure can! But the whole point of this overnight recipe is to eat it it cold, straight out of the fridge. However, if you’d like to eat it warm, then gently warm in the microwave (but don’t make it hot) and enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

  • Oats – Make sure to use old fashioned or rolled oats for the best texture.
  • Milk – You can use whole or skim milk. Coconut milk will also be delicious, bumping up the tropical vibes.
  • Yogurt – Greek yogurt provides extra thickness, creaminess, protein, and that perfect touch of tangy flavor.
  • Chia Seeds: They not only are loaded with health benefits like omega-3’s and fiber, but also gel up to make it creamy and thick.
  • Sugar: Regular white sugar gives the most delicious taste when paired with cardamom powder.
  • Cardamom – Finely ground cardamom pods.

Frequently asked questions

Can you use quick cooking oats?

Yes, but the texture will end up mushy, like porridge.

Can u eat it warm?

It is best served cold straight out of the refrigerator. However, if you like to eat them warm, then soak oats without fruits, microwave for 30 to 40 seconds the next morning and top with your favorite topping just before serving.

Will oats expand as they soak?

Yes, they will expand a little (about 15 percent). So, use a bigger jar which will make it convenient to stir as well.

Can you use steel cut?

They will take longer to get softer, require more liquid, and probably won’t be quite as soft as the rolled variety. They may also be more difficult to digest.
