Melon Berry Overnight Oatmeal

So, um . . . . watermelon is not the most photogenic fruit. Forgive me.


Okay, so the idea behind this recipe is that you can endlessly combine various berries and melons together. Here you see blueberry + watermelon, but how about raspberry + cantaloupe? Blackberry + honeydew? Strawberry + cool exotic melon from the farmer’s market (have you ever had a lemon drop melon?!).


P.S. The next post for the fitness series will be next Saturday!

Melon Berry Overnight Oatmeal

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Yield: serves 1

What you'll need:

  • 1/2 cup milk of choice, or water
  • 1/4 cup plain, vanilla, or berry yogurt (I used SoDelicious plain)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (I use Country Choice Organic)
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen berries (I used blueberry)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • splash of lemon juice
  • 1 tsp chia seeds (optional)
  • pinch of salt
  • melon cubes for topping (I used watermelon)

How to make it:

  1. Combine all ingredients except melon in a mason jar.
  2. Cover with lid and shake, shake, shake until combined.
  3. Store in the refrigerator overnight (or for several hours). Serve cold, and top with melon cubes (and more berries, if you'd like).

    I have never had success with using watermelon in oatmeal! It is one of my favorite refreshing summer fruits, but the consistency in oatmeal is always super watery. I also don’t like how the warm steamy oatmeal interacts with the icy cold watermelon. But this recipe looks super summery and tasty, so I would love to try it again!
