Simple overnight oats made with coconut milk and a mashed banana for tropical flavors. Top your bowl with mango and shredded coconut for a delicious breakfast.
I’m still in New Brunswick, at my parent’s house for another 2 days. I’ve been here for almost 3 weeks now and it’s been a very busy and productive “vacation”.
I’m running a few more wedding errands with my mom this morning. The last few things we need to do before I leave. We’re trying to get as much done now, so that September doesn’t end up busier than it needs to be.
The next 3 months will be busy, but I love it. I still need to develop and photograph all the recipes that will be posted during our 3 months away, plus finish my eBook, which will be out soon!
You can expect a lot of quick and easy recipes over the next months, including my second overnight oats recipe this summer.
This bowl of tropical coconut overnight oats is a slight variation of the basic overnight oats I shared a few weeks back. Honestly, I often make my basic oats using coconut milk and a mashed banana. It’s the best. You can also top it with mango (or maybe pineapple) for a tropical-flavored breakfast.
As I said in other posts, overnight oats are best when made the night before or no more than 2-3 days in advance.
