Tiramisu Overnight Oatmeal

The Thursday before my birthday, my friend and I were out and about in Manhattan enjoying some good eats. After some delightful vegan soul food at Red Bamboo, we moved on to Peacefood Cafe on 11th St. The dinner food is great there, but I particularly love their desserts. VEGAN. TIRAMISU. I didn’t see it coming, but their vegan tiramisu was infinitely better than any tiramisu (vegan or not) I’ve ever had. The cream portion was unbelievable and I have no idea what it was made of.


This put me in the mood to try out my hand at Tiramisu Oatmeal again. Feeling lazy, I tried it as an overnight oatmeal. I quit the shenanigans from before (when I tried to layer and all that jazz) and just mixed everything almost haphazardly. Much to my shock, this was better than any of my previous attempts at Tiramisu Oatmeal. I guess in the end, it’s the flavors that matter the most, and not the layers. 🙂

Tiramisu Overnight Oatmeal

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Yield: serves 1

What you'll need:

  • 1/4 cup milk of choice, or water
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (I use Country Choice Organic)
  • 1 (6 oz.) container of SoDelicious Greek-Style Almond Milk Yogurt (Plain)*
  • 1 tsp rum extract
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp instant coffee granules
  • pinch of salt
  • cocoa powder for dusting

How to make it:

  1. Combine all ingredients (except cocoa powder) in a mason jar.
  2. Cover with lid and shake, shake, shake until combined. This recipe is a little thicker than most overnight recipes, so you may have to stir with a spoon instead.
  3. Store in the refrigerator overnight (or for several hours). To serve, dust with cocoa powder (or perhaps shaved chocolate or chocolate chips). You could also top with fresh berries or chocolate nut butter. Eat cold or warm up in the microwave!

Just an FYI:

*You could use other yogurts (even dairy, I suppose), but this is the only one I've tried it with and the taste and texture were ideal.

  1. What if you can’t find that yogurt? Could use use plain greek yogurt with both rum and almond extract?

  5. I have been wanting to make this recipe for awhile now and I finally did- DELICIOUS! My roommate loved it too. Such a creative flavor idea 🙂

    When you heat overnight oats made with yogurt in the microwave, does the yogurt turn sour? I found that when I make “stovetop” (i.e. oatmeal in the microwave), yogurt turns sour when I heat it for too long.

  7. Maureen says:

    I substituted coffee extract for the rum extract, espresso powder for the instant coffee, and used Almond Dream low-fat yogurt for the So Delicious Greek Almond yogurt. It was delicious!!

  8. Christine says:

    I’ve never been able to find So Delicious Greek Style plain almond milk yogurt anywhere. Even the Whole Foods I went to didn’t carry it. Do you know of any other dairy or non-dairy yogurts that might yield similar results?

    • Lauren Smith says:

      That’s weird. They don’t have the coconut version either? Your area must not be too vegan friendly yet. 🙂

      Honestly, just use whatever plain or vanilla nondairy yogurt that’s available. Since it gets mixed in, it doesn’t make TOO big of a difference.

      • Christine says:

        Thanks for the suggestions! I did find So Delicious Greek Style vanilla yogurt (I believe it was coconut milk) in one store. I’ll try using that instead. I also found So Delicious plain almond milk yogurt. It wasn’t Greek style, and seemed too runny to use for overnight oats.

  9. Christine says:

    Update: I tried this with Almond Dream vanilla almond milk yogurt and with Yoplait Greek vanilla yogurt. The almond milk yogurt had a distinct aftertaste that was apparent in the oatmeal. The oatmeal made with Yoplait vanilla yogurt tasted much better! The overnight Tiramisu oatmeal was faster on a weekday morning, but I’m still partial to your stovetop version.

    • Lauren Smith says:

      Yes, Almond Dream yogurt has an extremely pronounced flavor. I like the texture, but I tend to use So Delicious coconut yogurt due to the taste.

      • Christine says:

        Yes, I agree! I used Almond Dream Greek yogurt. The texture was good, but I did not care for the taste. I love So Delicious Greek-style vanilla yogurt. Unfortunately, the selection of non-dairy yogurt is slim to non-existent at the grocery stores I frequent. They don’t reliably carry any one brand/flavor of non-dairy yogurt.

        Honestly, Greek yogurt is one of the foods holding me back from becoming vegan! I’m a huge fan of Greek yogurt, but can’t count on a non-dairy substitute being readily available.
