Overnight Oats with Coconut Milk- vegan, gluten free, yummy breakfast!

Start your day with this special breakfast on August 15th, India’s Independence Day. Overnight oats soaked in milk or yogurt, are all the rage right now. But I wanted to try them in coconut milk. I love the taste and flavor of coconut milk in so many dishes and these overnight oats proved to be no exception. Topped with fruit, I did not need any sugar added to it. But if the fruit is not sweet, you may add a touch of sugar. I added the chia seed powder for its health benefits but felt that the chia seed powder left a little after taste in my mouth. So I leave it up to you whether you want it or not. You can also add cashew nuts to these overnight oats. What a treat it is to start the day with a healthy breakfast like this one and have the Tiranga Sandwiches for an afternoon tea or a light lunch, isn’t it?

I am excited and honored to be co- hosting Fiesta Friday this week! I hope to see you at this fun, friendly event where we get to mingle with other bloggers. As a co-host, I look forward to seeing you and visiting your blog and chatting with you. The dishes presented at this fiesta are always amazing with so many talented bloggers contributing.

I am bringing my Overnight Oats in Coconut Milk to the party! See you there!

  1. How can I not love this breakfast? Most of the work is done the night before! It sounds delicious and I LOVE how beautifully your fruit is arranged…it’s like the oats are saying “Good Morning, Sandyha”! I’m so happy to be co-hosting Fiesta Friday with you…I’m off to mingle and have some fun. 🙂

  2. The more I make oatmeal the more I like it especially with fruit, maybe some nuts and a little sweetener. White chia powder? Never heard of that ingredient – I just throw in the seeds. The powder sounds like a better idea as the chia seeds can be overwhelming sometimes. Thanks for co-hosting this week and have fun with Nancy 🙂

    1. Thanks Judi! I am enjoying the overnight oats as it seems like breakfast is ready for me when I wake up:) I agree, the fruit and nuts make it fun! I found white chia powder at Whole Foods. I feel that it still has a slight after taste.
      I am having so much fun co-hosting with Nancy and enjoying visiting our friends in the blogging community.


    1. Thanks Vani! I am sure almond milk will taste very good too. I had cashew milk ice cream yesterday and want to try overnight oats in cashew milk too 🙂


  3. Hi Sandhya
    Your breakfast looks delicious! I must try this, I have been meaning to for ages to make overnight oats but using coconut milk is inspired! Thank you for sharing and co hosting Fiesta Friday! 🙂

  4. I just tried overnight oats for the first time this week. I liked it a lot. What a great idea to use coconut milk instead of regular milk. The fruit looks so pretty on top. You are so right, it would be fun to wake up to this!

  5. So colorful, healthy and nutritous Sandhya. I love oatmeal in the winter time, but switch to cereal in the summer as I find it too hot. But I love the coolness of this cereal, and paired with that delicious looking fruit, it had to be a winner. I have never bought chia powder before, but do add the chia seeds to my oatmeal. This will definitely become a staple for me, especially with that powdered coconut milk and probably more nutritious than the rasin bran that I buy. I use the Maggi coconut powder that I get from the Indian store. Beautiful job! Thanks so much for co-hosting, and I’m sorry I wasn’t around to assist, but when I saw that Nancy @ Feasting with Friends was on board with you, I breathe a sigh of relief. She’s such a love – I’ve co-hosted with her too when I was new to it. Perhaps in the future, we can co-host together at a time suitably convenient to both of us, I know I’d like that. You’ve done a brilliant job so far, good on you! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Loretta for your kind words! Yes Nancy has been very helpful and so much fun to co-host with. and yes we could co-host in the future too. Hope you had a great weekend with your girls!
      I also used to have the oatmeal in the winter but with the cool overnight oats I tried in coconut milk, I have found my new breakfast favorite in the summer.With all the fresh yummy fruits in season, we could vary the taste too right? I love everything coconut, so am happy to have the coconut milk powder always stocked in my home:)


    1. Thanks so much! I am happy that both my husband and son loved the overnight oats with coconut milk and these two generally do not like overnight oats 🙂

  7. Oh wow! I am a big fan of overnight oats and love to have it with different kinds of toppings. Yours looks absolutely delicious and perfectly matched to the colours of the Indian flag. Loved the idea of coconut milk instead of regular milk; would try it out soon!
