Overnight oats are one of my favourite make-ahead breakfast ideas. You can throw them together in minutes, put them in the fridge, go to sleep, and wake up to a delicious, healthy breakfast ready-to-go!

They’re also super portable if you need to bring them with you to work or school. I made them ALL the time when I was in my dietetic training 🙂

As a dietitian, I’m happy to share that both mango and oatmeal are rich in nutrition benefits. This recipe is also packed with fibre, protein, healthy fats, and complex carbohydrates for a filling, balanced way to start your day.

These mango overnight oats are such a yummy way to eat the fruit when it’s in season. That said, you can use either fresh or frozen mango in this recipe, which means you can enjoy it all year long!

Recipe Modifications & Ingredient Swaps

  1. For a gluten-free version of this recipe, be sure to use certified gluten-free rolled oats.
  2. For a dairy-free or vegan version of this recipe, simply swap the greek yogurt with a vegan alternative (a coconut yogurt would be delicious here!) Do note that this will likely lower the protein content of this meal.
  3. You can use any variety of milk or plant-based milk in this recipe – almond, cashew, coconut, etc. Just look for one that’s unsweetened if you can.
  4. Feel free to throw in some additional fruits if you feel like it – a sprinkle of berries, some pineapple, etc. If you don’t feel like mango you can even swap it for another fruit that works well with the flavours in this recipe (i.e. something summery!)
  5. You can use frozen mango chunks OR fresh mango here. If you make this recipe the night before, the frozen mango should thaw in time for breakfast.
  6. If you don’t have mint or coconut flakes – no stress. They add an extra punch of flavour, but can be left out if needed.

How Long Do Overnight Oats Keep?

These prepared oats WITH freshly cut mango will last for about 4 days in an airtight jar or container in the fridge. Because of this, they’re a great option for breakfast meal prep!

Mango Nutrition Benefits

Mangoes are a good source of many different vitamins and minerals, such as:

  • vitamin C
  • vitamin A
  • vitamin B6
  • folate
  • copper

This juicy fruit is also a source of dietary fibre, with a 3/4 cup serving providing about 7% of your daily fibre needs!

Oatmeal Nutrition Benefits

Oats are a whole grain, complex carbohydrate most well-known for their high fibre content. This whole-grain cereal contains about 11% fibre, with the majority being a soluble fibre called beta glucan.

Soluble fibre is known to help promote a healthy gut, regulate bowel movements, lower cholesterol, improve blood sugar control, and help increase feelings of fullness/satiety.

Oats are also a great source of micronutrients. A half-cup serving of dry oats contains:

  • Manganese (191% of your daily needs)
  • Phosphorus (41% of your daily needs)
  • Magnesium (34% of your daily needs)
  • Copper (24% of your daily needs)
  • Iron (20% of your daily needs)
  • Zinc (20% of your daily needs)
  • B vitamins, like thiamin (39%), folate (11%), and pantothenic acid 10%)

In addition, oatmeal is also a source of plant-based protein. A half-cup serving of dry oats provides about 6 grams of protein.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Mix dry ingredients (oats, chia, cinnamon, ginger) together in one large bowl or 2 separate jars.
  • Add wet ingredients (greek yogurt, plant milk, vanilla extract) to the dry ingredients. Stir to combine well.
  • Cover mixed ingredients and place in the fridge overnight or for at least 2 hours. This will allow the oats to soften and soak up the liquid.
  • Remove oat mixture from the fridge and assemble with mango chunks, coconut flakes, and fresh mint. Be sure to divide toppings evenly between the 2 servings. Enjoy!
