Blueberry Pineapple Overnight Oatmeal

Apparently it’s pineapple week on the blog. This occurred for no reason besides me realizing I had numerous bags of frozen fruit being ignored in my freezer. I guess that means you should expect lots of berries and pineapple in your future. ??

Sadly, I also realized that I’m not a huge fan of yogurt in my oats. Perhaps it’s because I prefer to eat my porridge warm. However, I also find the flavor of yogurt in oatmeal to be less cozy and earthy and wonderful. That being said, I know it’s popular, so I will do my best to provide recipes like this occasionally.

The best part about making recipes with yogurt is the opportunity to try a new brand. I rarely (pretty much never) eat yogurt, so when I buy it for a recipe, I don’t mind splurging on some of the new and “high-end” brands, especially since I can transform a “single-serving” container into multiple servings. It’s a gift I have. ?

For this recipe, I tried Kite Hill almond milk yogurt, which I had never seen in stores before this. I found it in Whole Foods (Union Square location in Manhattan). I have been favoring coconut milk yogurt for the past year or two, so I was excited to try almond again (my previous experiences were with So Delicious and Almond Dream). I thought Kite Hill had a better mouthfeel and more “natural” flavor; it didn’t have that lingering ALMOND taste that some other brands have. It was great, but probably not as good as Anita’s coconut yogurt. ???

Blueberry Pineapple Overnight Oatmeal

Prep Time: 3 minutes

Yield: serves 1

What you'll need:

  • 1/4 cup quick-cook steel cut oats
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp milk of choice, or water
  • 1/4 cup yogurt of choice (I used Kite Hill plain almond milk yogurt)
  • 1/4 cup (or more) frozen wild blueberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen diced pineapple
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (omit or reduce if using a flavored yogurt)
  • pinch of salt
  • optional: 1-2 tsp chia seeds AND an extra tbsp liquid

How to make it:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a container with a lid. Stir, or cover and shake, until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  2. Set in fridge overnight or for at least two hours. In the morning, add desired toppings (try coconut!) and eat COLD (yogurt becomes sour when heated up).

Just an FYI:

You can play with the proportions of fruit. I used more pineapple than blueberries because I prefer pineapple's flavor. You can use equal amounts or more blueberry than pineapple. Play around and have fun!

    I love Kite Hill, but I haven’t tried their yogurts! Their cream cheese-style spread is amazing though, as is their “cheese”.

  2. I love the combination of berries and pineapple! Can’t complain about the number of pineapple recipes this week either! 😉

  3. Sandra Florie says:

    I’m not complaining about the amount of pineapple recipes either! You are very creative with your pineapple pairing combinations Lauren!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with next!

    Blueberries and pineapples just so happen to be some of my favorite fruits! I definitely would like to try a plant-based yogurt because I’ve been looking to eat a little less dairy. So, I’m hoping Kite Hill will do me justice!
