What you need for Blueberry Lemon Overnight Oats
- Rolled Oats: these are important to not switch up! Using rolled oats gives these oats the texture you want.
- Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk: I always use almond milk in my overnights oats recipe! I like to use the unsweetened vanilla version.
- Blueberries: if you don’t have fresh blueberries, you can use frozen here too!
- Lemon zest: don’t leave this part out! the lemon zest adds a lot of flavor here.
- Chia seeds: adding chia seeds to your overnight oats helps absorb the rolled oats and adds a nutritional boost to your oats!
- Shredded coconut: I love adding coconut to these overnight oats, but you can leave this out if you’d like too!
- Vanilla extract: I always add this into the overnight oats to sweeten it up while giving it a natural vanilla taste.
- Cinnamon: don’t skimp on this either! Cinnamon adds so much flavor to overnight oats.
- Maple syrup: if you’d rather leave this out or switch for honey, you totally can!
- Yogurt: adding yogurt to your overnight oats makes it super creaky, especially here.
This recipe serves two! Make it together to serve for two breakfasts or cut in half into seperate jars!
How to store your overnight oats:
Overnight oats are best to store in the fridge overnight to thicken up after making them. I like to make them in these Porter Bowls which are great for grab and go or in a sealed container or mason jar.
