Pina Colada Overnight Oats 🍍🥥🌴
Pina Colada Overnight Oats are an invigorating morning treat! Fresh pineapple combined with coconut creates a refreshing island favorite flavor! Super easy & convenient too! Tastes like a dessert, with the nutrients and staying power of a meal!
Rich + Creamy, Fresh + Fruity! Tastes like an indulgent dessert, while actually being a very nutritious and satisfying breakfast idea. If you add a scoop of vanilla protein powder to your oats, then it’s a completely balanced meal, and will likely keep you fueled until lunchtime.
Many of you know my obsession with overnight oats started almost ten years ago right as my kids were hitting the pre-teen and teenage years. Overnight Oats saved my sanity and our morning routine! I truly wanted to serve them something nourishing and energy-packed every morning, but dang mornings were often demoralizing 🤪 with four kids – a few years later that became six kids (2 bonus/step teens). Having something that was literally ready-to-eat when we woke up + knowing it was packed with carefully chosen ingredients made my life so much easier! A few of my kids loved them, and a few took longer to come around – but they eventually did!
Yes, we eat this cold, but you *can* heat ’em up on a cold day if you like!
“Soaked” oats save a lot of time in the morning, but they’re also much easier to digest than unsoaked oats.
As the oats soak overnight, their digestibility greatly improves, here’s how:
Overnight as they soak, the starches break down which improves digestibility, and the natural phytic acid (which all plants contain) is greatly reduced which makes them more easily absorbed by your body!
Yes. These oats are meant to be eaten cold like pudding.
🥛Use ANY unsweetened/plain milk of your choice. My personal favorite for these overnight oats is unsweetened coconut milk or unsweetened macadamia nut milk. Any unsweetened nut milk, coconut milk, high-quality grass-fed cow’s milk, or heavy cream all work really well here. Use what you personally like and have on hand.
🍯Sweetness Factor is a very personal taste preference, so you may want to use more or less pure maple syrup or raw honey, depending on YOUR specific taste preferences.
💪I often add protein or collagen powder to my overnight oats. If you choose to do this, then your oats may need an extra splash of milk.

Makes 1 serving
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

Add all the ingredients to a sealable jar or bowl and give it a good stir until it’s well combined.
Let it soak in the fridge, sealed, for at least 6 hours. This will yield a creamier consistency.
Give it a good stir again immediately before eating.
Top your overnight oats with additional diced pineapple and shredded coconut if desired.
