Overnight oatmeal has been "all the rage" lately as I've seen blog posts and pins on Pinterest featuring this easy, healthy and delicious looking breakfast idea.  It has definitely caught my attention on multiple occasions; but nothing has inspired me to actually try it until I saw the post here from Kiersten at The Type A Housewife and the arrival of the case of mangoes that I recently won.

I threw it together after dinner and was so excited to give it a try in the morning.   It did not disappoint.   I used rolled oats, unsweetened shredded coconut, unsweetened almond milk, sucanat as the sweetener and one of those amazing mangoes.  I may not do anything else with the mangoes after trying this.  It was, by far, the best breakfast that I've had in a long time.  Deliciously filling, it kept my hunger at bay until I was able to have a late lunch.  I loved not having to turn on the stove for this meal.  It was absolutely fantastic.  The fact that I was able to throw it together easily at night and have it the next morning made it even better.

This would definitely be delicious made with a variety of other different fruits.  I encourage you to give this a try as soon as possible.  For the complete recipe that I used, go visit Kiersten here at The Type A Housewife.  While you are there, take some time to look around.  Her blog is beautifully written and the food that she shares there will undoubtedly make you hungry.
Happy Wednesday!

  1. I love any oatmeal recipe i can get my hands on. I love the addition of the sweet mango.

  2. That looks delicious! I copied and pasted it into Notepad and saved the recipe with your name on it. After all, I'd never have seen it if it hadn't been on your blog. :-)

  3. Looks amazing, that would be right up our alley, that's one thing my family agrees on, we all like oatmeal and mango is a fabulous addition.
    I enjoy Kiersten's blog, too!
    You are really doing some great recipes with the mangoes, looking forward to the next one!

  4. I need to make healthy breakfasts like this. I tend to get too busy in the morning and skip it all together. This looks fantastic!

  5. Great idea of adding the mango. You should try to make a mango pay. I have two recipes in my blog and are no-bake really easy.

    Here is one of them:


    Happy weekend.


  6. I haven't had oatmeal in a while because I just haven't felt inspired by it...until now. I'm in love!

  7. I'm going to have to try this! I love oatmeal but never take the time to make it in the morning!

  8. Thanks for the mention and for the kind words--you are too sweet! I am so glad you enjoyed the recipe. I'm hoping to find some more champagne mangoes this weekend so I can make it again too. ;)

  9. Ooooooohhh! This is Cayman breakfast written all over it! The mangoes are starting to ripen on the trees here :)

  10. Oh, the oatmeal looks fabulous! Such a simple but luxurious treat ... :)

  11. there you go using those incredibly amazing mangos! Love this oatmeal recipe

  12. Mango Oatmeal....this is breakfast heaven.

  13. I am IN LOVE with the amount of mangoes on your site this week :)

  14. I dislike milk in any form...cows, almonds, soy, coconut, so I use Pomegrante juice for mind, bananas, blueberries, strawberries, walnuts, craisins, it is so delish. Will try Mangoes at your suggestions!

  15. Hi Candace-it's been a few months since I've been visiting your blog, and just wanted to make sure I'm still following you...did not see it, so I signed up to follow!

    Your mangos caught my attention...winning a case of those beauties? Wow! Congratulations!
    We are not ready for our mango season yet, till at least end of June, and July.
    Love how you created the delicious overnight oatmeal with mangos! Yumm, totally healthy, and incredibly good, and great photo of it as well:DDD
    Take care,

  16. This is such a great way to start your day! I can see that you are in a mango mood lately Candace! Have a great day!

  17. This sounds gorgeous - especially with those juicy chunks of fresh mango and the natural nutty sweetness of almond milk. My fiance makes bircher muesli which steeps overnight, and it's one of our favorites.

    We'll be back in the US in June for our wedding. Can't wait to fly back to summer mango season!!
