Overnight Oats with Frozen Fruit are creamy and so delicious! All you need is a handful of ingredients like oats, chia seeds and frozen fruit.
I'm going to come out and say... these are the BEST OVERNIGHT OATS.
They are so perfectly creamy and thick. I don't even need fresh fruit in my overnight oats anymore!
I decided to use frozen mixed berries for the oats I made, but you can use whatever frozen fruit you love.
Fresh berries are super expensive nowadays so buying them frozen is a great way to save some money.
What are overnight oats?
Overnight oats are oats that have been soaked in liquid with other additions overnight. They become creamy. If you don't like the oats served cold, you can place them in the microwave before enjoying.

Frequently Asked Questions
I recommend old fashioned rolled oats. Do not use steel cut oats or instant oats.
Yes, frozen fruit is awesome in overnight oats!
I have a method to using frozen fruit in overnight oats. Rather than mixing in the frozen fruit before refrigeration, I combine the other ingredients and place the frozen fruit on top. The next day, I gently mix the fruit. This way, the frozen fruit doesn't break apart and become mushy.
Nope! The frozen fruit will thaw overnight in the fridge.
These overnight oats are great for meal prep. They should last for about 3 days stored in an airtight container, in the refrigerator.
Want to bump up the protein?
If you want extra protein, you can use protein powder or collagen powder. Please note that you may need to add more milk based on the consistency of the powder you're using.

Such a great recipe! I swapped half of a banana for the maple syrup & it worked perfectly.
Love the idea of sweetening with banana! 🙂
Delicious! Made as directed -- so good. Used frozen blueberries. To serve, I added my homemade Greek yogurt and some honey, but I think I could have done without the honey. The oatmeal as prepared was deliciously sweet (I used 2 tsp organic maple syrup in it). This is a new favorite -- thank you!
So glad to hear it's a new favorite recipe of yours! I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment and rating, Annette. 🙂
I’ve been making this for the past week ❤️ I love it
