It’s easy to make Strawberry Coconut Overnight Oats with this recipe that uses almond milk, rolled oats, chia seeds, and maple syrup for a sweetener!
Recently I tried a new recipe for Strawberry Coconut Overnight Oats, and they were wonderful. This breakfast treat is flavorful and full of filling, healthy chia seeds for a tasty breakfast with an extra nutritional boost. A friend of mine posted this recipe on a Facebook page, and I thought it looked promising, and very simple.
In this recipe, rolled oats are combined with strawberry puree, coconut, almond milk, pure maple syrup (for sweetness), chia seeds (which help fill you up!), vanilla extract and lemon juice. The oats are then refrigerated overnight. By breakfast the next day, the oats will have absorbed quite a bit of the liquid and flavor, and will be waiting for you in your refrigerator!
Most of the time I put the oats into individual containers with lids and then refrigerate. I also do this with my Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats With Pecans. Single serving containers are very convenient to grab, while running out the front door. Here’s how simple it is to make these tasty oats:

Puree The Strawberries
Puree fresh or frozen strawberries, whichever ones you have handy. You can add a tiny bit of the almond milk to help with the blending. You want this strawberry mixture to be very smooth and fully mixed once done.
Pour the blended strawberries into a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl.
Stir well, to completely mix and combine the ingredients together. The maple syrup gives the mixture enough sweetness for my taste, but you might prefer it a little sweeter. Taste the oats and add more maple syrup, if you want them sweeter.
Refrigerate The Strawberry Coconut Overnight Oats
Pour the strawberry coconut overnight oats into a large container (with a lid) or several smaller containers. I usually divide the oat mixture into small, plastic containers that have lids. It’s not necessary to do that, but I really like the convenience of individual servings ready to go in the fridge. That way, I can just “grab and go”, even taking them in the car if necessary to eat a quick meal on the go.
You can also leave the oats in large covered bowl overnight, and dish it up from there. Whatever works best for you is certainly okay with me. Refrigerate the strawberry coconut overnight oats overnight, The oat mixture will firm up, and be ready to eat first thing in the morning, nice and chilled! YES… the overnight oats are not heated, but are eaten chilled. I tell you that because I once had a reader ask me that question.
That’s it! These strawberry coconut overnight oats are incredibly easy to make, and they taste good, too. You can store the covered oats in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. I like not having to think about what I’m going to fix for breakfast, because I know there’s a little container of overnight oats waiting for me in the fridge! Hope you will consider giving this recipe a try.

It's easy to make Strawberry Coconut Overnight Oats with this recipe that uses almond milk, rolled oats, chia seeds, and maple syrup for a sweetener!
- 4 cups rolled oats
- 12 ounces fresh or frozen strawberries , pureed
- 5 1/2 cups almond milk
- 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1/3 cup chia seeds
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice (optional, but I like the freshness it adds!)
Puree strawberries with a tiny bit of the almond milk (just enough to fully blend the strawberries), and place in large mixing bowl.
Add remaining ingredients and stir thoroughly, to fully combine. Place oat mixture into a large covered bowl or into individual serving cups (with lids), and refrigerate overnight. Remove from refrigerator when ready to eat. Serve chilled.
Mixture will keep for up to 3-4 days (covered) in refrigerator.
This should be made the day before you wish to eat them and refrigerated overnight. The overnight refrigeration time allows the liquid, etc. to be absorbed more into the oats.
