Overnight Coconut & Mango Oats Parfait

The weather here in New England has turned decidedly dreary – overcast, rainy, cold – and I’ve found myself torn between winter comfort food and lighter spring fare.

On the one side, I crave steaming soup and hot oatmeal whereas on the opposing side I long for fresh berries and cold overnight oatmeal.

The latter side won out with this recipe.

Despite morning temperatures hovering in the 40s, I couldn’t get the idea of chilled overnight oats out of my head.

Tropical flavors – specifically mango and coconut – shine in this satisfying breakfast that is served parfait-style.

Rolled oats are soaked overnight in creamy coconut milk and thick Greek yogurt, and then layered with sweet mango-banana soft serve & crunchy toasted coconut flakes.

Sure, I might have eaten the parfait while huddled beneath a warm blanket, but I enjoyed it despite the gloomy weather.

I’ll be making this throughout the summer months, for sure!

  1. We’re getting the same type of weather here in Calgary, Alberta, too. It’s been cold, damp, and rainy for 2 weeks… and I love it! The grass is so green, all the plants are budding, it’s so beautiful! But you’re right, I’ve been cuddling up to more soups and stews now that I did in the winter!

  2. Love the layers and especially the big flakes of coconut on top. That is the same kind I keep on hand and I love that it brings more crunch than shredded.

  3. this is definitely one to remember when it gets a bit warmer again! my go-to this week has been oats made with some unsw. coconut milk and water, topped with fresh strawberries :) so amazing.
