With a bright tropical flavor and a simple method, these Healthy Overnight Oats with Mango and Greek Yogurt are an easy and healthy make-ahead breakfast option for the whole family. They take 5-minutes to stir together and store in the fridge for days!
Healthy Overnight Oats with Greek Yogurt
I love having some toddler breakfasts (and breakfast for myself!) ready and waiting in the fridge to help ensure that we have a healthy start no matter what the morning brings. This is also a great strategy for when you have a new baby in the house, a busy morning, and/or you find that morning meal to be a challenge.
These overnight oats with yogurt have protein, healthy fats, fruit, fiber, and Vitamin C. And they’re really yummy!
Ingredients in Healthy Overnight Oats
To make this recipe you’ll need:
- plain whole milk Greek yogurt
- hemp seeds
- oats (I like to grind them in the blender so they have a finer texture but that’s optional)
- shredded unsweetened coconut
- vanilla extract
- maple syrup (or honey)
TIP: You can use fresh mango or thawed frozen mango. Scroll down for the full recipe.
Can I use regular yogurt in these overnight oats?
Sure, it will change the thickness a smidge but will still be a great overnight oats recipe.
Can I use frozen mango?
Yes, and it’s nice that it’s so much easier since you don’t need to cut it! Simply let it thaw before you add it to the containers. And cut it into slightly smaller pieces if the cubes are very large.

Here’s a look at the process involved in how to make these overnight oats. Scroll down to see the full recipe.
- Cut a slice off the mango, avoiding the interior core.
- Cut a grid through the fruit but not the skin.
- Bend the skin up to push the grid upwards and slice the cubes away from the skin.
- Stir together the rest of the ingredients and divide into airtight containers. Place into the fridge overnight and serve cold.
TIP: The kids can stir this up or eat it as is in layers.
How can I serve this to my baby?
Simply omit the added sweetener and place all ingredients into the blender. Blend smooth to create a more uniform texture. This might be a great option for toddlers who are still learning to like more complicated textures too. You might prefer them this way if you haven’t yet found an overnight oats recipe that you love.
Are there other fruits I can use in these overnight oats?
You can use berries like raspberries, blackberries or diced strawberries or dried fruit like raisins or cherries or diced apricots. You can also make banana overnight oats if you stir the banana into the mixture to make sure the slices are totally covered (to avoid them from getting brown) or you can mash the banana and stir it into the mixture.
Tips for Making the Best Healthy Overnight Oats with Greek Yogurt
- Dice the mango small enough so that the pieces are a size that it’s easy to pick up with a spoon.
- Grind up the rolled oats or use instant oats for a smoother texture to the yogurt mixture.
- Blend all of the ingredients together to make a smoother texture. This is a great method if you’d like to serve this recipe in a reusable pouch.
- Omit the added sweetener if serving to a baby.
- Store overnight in the fridge before serving in an airtight container.
- Use berries or mashed banana in place of the mango if preferred.
