This recipe for Orange Creamsicle Overnight Oats is basically the breakfast version of your favorite popsicle growing up. Or, if you’re my dad, his favorite popsicle forever.
If you’ve never heard of overnight oats… get ready to hop on the bandwagon! Basically, the premise of overnight oats is that you get to soak some oats in some liquid/ fruit and it turns into yummy mushy breakfast the next morning (that you don’t even have to heat up!).
I vote we change the phrase “It’s the best thing since sliced bread!” to “It’s the best thing since overnight oats!”. Who’s with me?! (Not to bash sliced bread either… anyone who knows me knows I love a good slice of bread, too).
Anyway, I’ll stop analyzing the various forms of carbohydrates now and (finally) give you this scrumptious recipe. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I have!

Orange Creamsicle Overnight Oats
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/4 cup non-dairy yogurt *
- 6 tbsp water
- 1-2 Dates (finely chopped)**
- 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 small madarin orange, chopped if desired (or 1/2 small naval orange)
In a jar or tupperware, thoroughly mix oats, non-dairy yogurt, water, dates, and vanilla. Add orange on top.
Place lid on jar or tupperware and leave for a minimum of two hours or overnight. This will keep in the fridge for up to three days.
*I used a cashew based yogurt in this recipe, but you could also use a soy or almond based yogurt with little change in taste. I think a coconut based non-dairy yogurt would be tasty in this, but keep in mind it will taste slightly coconutty.
**Can sub with 1 tbsp of my Simple Date Caramel or 1 tbsp of liquid sweetener (such as pure maple syrup or agave nectar).
