(This Coconut Lime Overnight Oats recipe is inspired by this recipe on the Tone It Up site, so click here for their lemon-y version.)
Step by Step Instructions:
I’m obsessing over this Coconut Lime Overnight Oats recipe, and I bet you’ll be too, so here’s what you’ll need: Protein Powder (I love Perfect Fit protein powder and the vanilla and coconut varieties would be great here), gluten-free Rolled Oats, Coconut Yogurt (or Greek Yogurt), 1 Lime, Vanilla Bean Paste, Honey, Coconut Milk (or Almond Milk), Your favorite Granola for topping, Unsweetened Coconut Flakes, and Chia Seeds.
The Coconut Lime Overnight Oats start off by adding the dry ingredients to a bowl, so that includes 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 2 teaspoons of Chia Seeds, 1 scoop of protein powder, and 1 tablespoon of unsweetened Coconut Flakes.
Then stir the dry ingredients to combine.
Next add 1 cup of yogurt, and because I wanted this to have a coconut undertone I happily went with a dairy free coconut yogurt from So Delicious. But Greek Yogurt would be yummy too.
Add in your coconut milk, or you can use almond milk if you’d rather but again I wanted that coconut flavor throughout.
Next up add a teaspoon of vanilla bean paste and then 2 teaspoons of honey.
Now here’s where the lime part of the Coconut Lime Overnight Oats comes in by adding the juice and zest of 1 lime. Seriously when are they going to invent scratch and sniff computers, because this smelled so good!
Then stir until everything is well incorporated, and let the oats mixture sit for about 3 minutes.
This Coconut Lime Overnight Oats recipe makes 2 servings, so divide the mixture between 2 glass containers. I love using mason jars or a glass jar like this with a hinged lid, so they are well sealed.
Let the Coconut Lime Overnight Oats sit (you guessed it) overnight in the refrigerator, so that all of the flavors come together and the oats are softened. I like to eat the Coconut Lime Overnight Oats for the next 2 breakfasts and not keep them too long, because I want to be sure they’re fresh. Top the Coconut Lime Overnight Oats with a sprinkling of your favorite granola and coconut flakes and enjoy, so happy overnight oats eating!!
