These Orange Creamsicle Overnight Oats are a quick and easy make-ahead breakfast recipe that tastes just like a creamsicle pop! Made with just 6 simple ingredients.
It's no mystery I'm an overnight oat fan. Now that spring is (maybe?) sticking around, I naturally find myself trading up my bowls of stick-to-your-ribs cozy oats, to thick, creamy, and cool overnight oats ready and waiting in my fridge. To take the "I'm ready for summer" channeling even more, enter the Orange Creamsicle Overnight Oats.
- orange juice
- milk of choice
- vanilla extract
- vanilla Greek yogurt
- chia seeds
- rolled oats
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together ½ cup orange juice, ( I prefer no pulp) ½ cup milk of choice, (I've used unsweetened soy milk, or low-fat milk), 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, ½ cup vanilla Greek yogurt, and 1 teaspoon chia seeds. Stir in 1 cup of rolled oats, and mix until combined.
Transfer oats to a bowl or jar with a lid, cover, and refrigerate at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight.
- These overnight oats get thicker and sweeter the longer they sit. The best flavor/texture is achieved when they are refrigerated overnight.
- If you prefer yours sweeter, add a teaspoon or two of honey when you add the liquid ingredients.
- For extra orange flavor, stir in a teaspoon of fresh orange zest.
How long do these overnight oats last?
When covered and refrigerated, these oats last up to 4 days in the fridge.
Can these overnight oats be warmed up?
Yes. I would microwave on high at 30 second intervals until they are just warm. Heating the oats too high runs the risk of the Greek yogurt breaking and separating. This will leave you with a more watery texture and changes the appearance of the oats.
Can I make these vegan?
You can easily make these vegan-friendly or dairy-free by using a plant-based milk, and a plant-based vanilla yogurt. If you want to make these gluten-free, make sure to use certified gluten-free oats.
