Strawberry coconut overnight oats
Have you made overnight oats before? If you haven’t I suggest that you try it and perhaps use this strawberry coconut overnight oats recipe. It is gluten free and vegan.
I love making overnight oats for breakfast because they are super simple to make as well as extremely nutritious, filling and delicious. You can make endless variations and flavors and tweak the recipe to cater your taste buds and diet restrictions.
Below are other versions of overnight oats as well as chia seed pudding recipes, which I also make sometimes to change things up.

For this strawberry coconut overnight oats recipe I actually proceeded differently than my other overnight oat recipes. I pureed the strawberries prior to adding them to the mix and that made the oats look more homogenous. I also loved the pink color that it gave the recipe and so did my daughter. She now wants to have pink oats all the time, which is fine by me. I think next time I will do it with blackberries and turn it purple. I think she is going to love that version too.
I am going to start making other variations soon. Such a great and healthy breakfast alternative overnight oats can be.
Strawberry coconut overnight oats
Miryam's original recipe
Yield: 6 servings
Total Time: 10 minutes
- 4 cups rolled oats, gluten free
- 12 oz frozen or fresh organic strawberries, pureed
- 6 cups almond milk
- 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1/3 cup chia seeds
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
In large mixing bowl mix all the ingredients. You may need a little bit more milk if you like. I like mine a bit more liquid like than pudding consistency so I add more. Place in the refrigerator overnight and eat the next morning.
This recipe will keep in your refrigerator covered in a glass container for up to 5 days.
This sounds so good, looks beautiful. I still have yet to try overnight oats but after seeing this one, bookmarked and needs to happen soon!
These sound delightful! And I love the colour :)
OH my goodness! This looks heavenly! Pinned!
They all look very beautiful and I am sure they taste wonderful too.
Miryam, do you believe I’ve never tried overnight oats?!! But you’ve me inspired to make it! Gorgeous recipe ;-)
I love the pretty pink color! These look yummy along with the coffee chocolate chia pudding!
I have tries many overnight oats recipes and while they were good this recipe is TO DIE for!!!! I have now made it for the second week in a row and I make mine with organic blueberries (and I swear it tastes better than I could ever imagine!!) And my daughter who is 15 months I use mixed berries and she devours it!! This is THE best recipe!!!! Thank you we love it!
That is awesome. I am glad you and your daughter like it :-) Thanks for stopping by.
This might be an odd question, but I’ve never made overnight oats before. Do you eat these cold the next day? Or do you heat them up? Thanks!
You can have them as you wish. I sometimes heat them up for 1 minute and sometimes I have them completely cold. Is just really as however you like them :-)
What an easy and great idea for breakfast!
This looks so fantastic. I love muesli and this looks like it might be easier to reproduce at home. Thanks for sharing. :)
Pinned for later! Yum!
Looks delicious! Could I use regular milk instead of almond milk?
Yes for sure :-)
I have never tried making overnight oats, but my girls love oatmeal in the morning. This recipe is going to be a wonderful surprise for them because. Thank you!
I hope they like it. Thanks for stopping by!
This looks great, but I don’t think I have all my oats straight. Are rolled oats the same as “old fashioned” oats? And if not, can you used the “old-fashioned”? Thanks.
Yes old fashion oats are the same :-)
Can you scale this down to one serving for me?
Just divide the recipe by 6. It is not a baking recipe so you won’t go wrong :-)
Could I use coconut milk instead of almond milk? Or do you have another alternative that might work? I can’t do nuts or dairy. Thanks.
Sure, that would be great. It maybe a bit thicker consistency but still very good!
i followed the instructions completely and mine looks way different and doesn’t taste that Good :( I’m going to have to retry because this looks amazing.
Sam, it is probably the maple in it. I am not a fan of maple and strawberries. Just omit the maple. It will still be sweet and wonderful!
I just made these with my 3 year old and she wanted a bowl before we even put them in the fridge overnight. She ate all that I gave her and is excited for the morning. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
Would steel cut oats make this recipes any different?
Yes. That type wouldn’t work. They would be to tough to eat. Those, unfortunately, have to be cooked!!
If you add a grated green apple to the mix, it’s even healthier and you won’t need the maple syrup as a sweetener
What a great idea. Thanks for the suggestion :-)
Would steel cut oats work?
No, they would be to hard. They don’t behave the same way as rolled oats. Unless you cook them they wouldn’t work. Sorry!!
I have used oat groats & even buckwheat groats instead of oats in my overnight oats recipes & I like the more chewy texture so steel cut should work…you just have to chew a bit more. :)
Miriam these are actually heavenly! I made these last night…super quick and easy! use rice malt instead of maple as none left. my husband and I both chomped on them this morning….slightly warmed with a sprinkling of omega seeds and raw honey! Thank you for sharing xx
Super awesome. I am glad you guys liked it :-)
Does it have to be a glass container?
Is it okay to separate the recipe Into six different servings before putting it in the fridge overnight?
Absolutely the BEST overnight oats recipe I’ve ever tried!! I mean it is AWESOME!!!!! Thank you for sharing this!
Also I added 1/2 tsp mini choc chips! Fabulous!!
Just tried this for breakfast and we all loved it!! Great recipe!
If you don’t have the glass bowl can u use plastic Tupperware cups
Looks awesome! Do the frozen strawberries need to be thawed out before pureeing?
Yes they have to.
Can i use quinoa instead of oats?
Yes but they will have to be cooked!
