Because I love overnight oats so much, I created this oh-so-tasty–and nutritious!–overnight oats with mango and banana recipe for your enjoyment (and mine, too!). Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make it:
Rolled oats: What are the best oats for overnight oats? I like using old-fashioned rolled oats to make mango banana oatmeal––and I would suggest using these over steel-cut oats.
Almond milk and Greek yogurt: These ingredients hydrate the oats and add protein to the recipe. If you’re a dairy-free eater, you can sub out the Greek yogurt for almond or coconut yogurt.
Cinnamon, nutmeg, and honey: These will naturally sweeten the recipe. If you’re vegan, you can swap the honey for maple syrup.
Banana, mango, and almonds: These are the toppings for your mango overnight oats!
Other mix-ins you might enjoy include flax seeds, chia seeds, peanut butter, frozen fruits––frozen mangos would work great––and fresh fruits.
To make mango overnight oats, first mix oats, milk, yogurt, and spices in a jar. Top with banana,
then drizzle with honey.
Cover jar with a lid, then refrigerate and let soak for a few hours or overnight.
Yes, overnight oats are very healthy. Oats have a variety of health benefits to offer. First, they offer fiber, which is great for digestion. Fiber promotes fullness and benefits heart health.
Overnight oats also provide plant-based protein, as well as vitamins and minerals like magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and iron. You can make oats even healthier by pairing them with other nutritious ingredients like fruit.
It is perfectly fine to leave fruit in overnight oats. In fact, fruit is one of the best ingredient pairings for making oats this way!
Try overnight oats with mixed berries, cherries, peaches, sliced bananas, or chopped mango like in this mango overnight oats recipe. Fresh or frozen fruit can be mixed into overnight oats.
You’ll have better results with overnight oats if you use some type of milk or milk alternative as the liquid. This will result in the creaminess that makes overnight oats super delicious.
Try making them with almond milk, coconut milk, or oat milk. Yogurt or fruit juice would also work as the liquid.
For the most part, overnight oats are good for weight loss. Oats are a nutrient-dense food that provides nutrients known to support weight loss, including fiber and protein.
However, if you are trying to lose weight, it’s important that you pay attention to what you’re adding to your overnight oats.
If you’re combining them with ingredients that are high in added sugar or unhealthy fats, then the oats may not have the weight loss benefits that you are looking for. Overall, I recommend oats as the perfect addition to a balanced diet.
