Reasons You'll Love This Recipe
- Great for Meal Prep: These overnight oats with frozen berries are perfect for a meal prep recipe. They are best when they sit in the fridge overnight to soften and absorb the right amount of liquid.

Oats: This recipe works best with rolled oats or old fashioned oats. Using other types of oats such as steel cut oats can require different amounts of liquid and throw off the ratio.
Yogurt: I chose to use a vanilla plant-based yogurt for this recipe to add some flavor and sweeten up the oats.
Frozen Fruit: I used frozen mixed berries in this recipe but you can use any type of frozen fruit that you like best.

Substitutions & Additions
Use different frozen fruits: You can easily mix things up and use different fruits rather than just frozen berry overnight oats.
Some of my top recommendations besides berries would be frozen mango, frozen pineapple, frozen pomegranate.
Add protein: To add a little extra protein you can stir in peanut butter, almond butter, or even a little vanilla protein powder.
Omit the yogurt: If you don't have any yogurt on hand you can omit the yogurt and replace it with more oat milk. This might make the overall outcome slightly less creamy.
Change out the oat milk: You can use any type of milk that you prefer. Some good options are almond milk, cashew milk, soy milk, or even coconut milk.
Top Tip: Even though these are called overnight oats, they can be stored in the fridge for as little as an hour before they absorb enough liquid to enjoy!
Step by Step Instructions
Thankfully these frozen fruit overnight oats are super easy to make and are a beginner level recipe!
Step 1: Start by gathering all of the ingredients and decide what type of frozen fruit you want to use.
Step 2: Combine all of the ingredients in 1-2 containers depending on the size of the container.
Step 3: Mix the ingredients together until everything is well combined. Then cover the container and store it in the fridge for at least an hour. Ideally refrigerate them overnight to allow the oats to absorb the oat milk and get nice and soft.
Step 4: Remove from the refrigerator and give them a good stir. Mix in any additional goodies like extra fruit, nut butter, or granola and enjoy!
- Don't skip the yogurt: Adding yogurt to your overnight oats will give you a ton of extra creamy texture and flavor.
- Adjust as necessary: Sometimes I find that different brands of oats will absorb slightly more or less of the oat milk. Thankfully it's easy to adjust as needed, simply add more oat milk if they are too dry and add extra oats if there is too much liquid.
There are so many great ways to enjoy these overnight oats, these are some of my top recommendations for toppings and additions:
- Nut butters like peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, or sun butter
- Protein powder
- Extra frozen fruit or fresh fruit
- Hemp seeds
- Chia seeds (add 1 teaspoon chia seeds and an extra 2 tablespoon oat milk)
- Chocolate chips
- Coconut flakes
Storage Tip: Store these oats in a closed container in the fridge for up to four days.
