Peaches and Cream Overnight Oats

August 16, 2020

Delicious peaches and cream overnight oats made with fresh peaches and dairy-free with coconut cream. Just mix all together the night before and it’s ready in the morning.

Fun fact about me, growing up we always had “porridge” for breakfast. Ever since I can remember oatmeal was referred to as porridge in my house and I honestly have no clue why. I was raised on steel cut oats with brown sugar which might have something to do with my love of oatmeal today… 

If you’re used to hot oatmeal, I completely understand that cold oats sound weird but I promise they’re delicious! I love that they can be prepped in advance (in no time at all) and there are countless flavor combinations! Since I’m obsessed with all things peach flavored, I decided to make a peaches and cream overnight oats and I’m so glad I did. 

Here’s What You Need:

  • Rolled oats – make sure you grab gluten-free if necessary.
  • Non-dairy milk – I like almond or coconut milk but any milk works!
  • Peach – use a fresh, juicy peach! 
  • Chia seeds – to help thicken the oats while they set. 
  • Natural sweetener – either maple syrup, honey or agave works.
  • Coconut cream – made from a can of full-fat coconut milk. 

What is coconut cream?

Coconut cream is the best part of canned coconut milk in my opinion. Place a can of full-fat coconut milk in the fridge overnight. The cream will harden at the top of the can and the bottom will be more of a coconut water consistency. For this recipe, you’ll need to scoop out the cream from the top and save the water for a different recipe (it’s great in smoothies!). 

If in a pinch, you can also just open your can of coconut milk and skim off the top without refrigerating, but in certain climates and certain varieties the coconut cream will get mixed in with the coconut water. Alternatively you can buy pure canned coconut cream.

Making and Storing Overnight Oats

It doesn’t get much simpler than an overnight oats recipe. Simply mix all of the ingredients together (except the coconut cream) in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator overnight. When you’re ready to enjoy, remove from the fridge, add some more milk and mix in the coconut cream. Voila! Easy snack, breakfast or dessert is served.

    One time I made an entire week’s worth of meals for my parents and my father ate only one of the meals claiming he didn’t like the rest. What is not to like about kale chips!?!

    I didn’t use to like overnight oats, but now I’m totally in love with them. How on earth does that even happen? lol I’m a huge texture person, so my oats need to have something other than the “mush” of the oats, which is why I love layering mine with fruit and something crunchy like nuts!

    Never had overnight oats before, so I’d be interested to try this soon. I don’t like regular oatmeal, but we will see!

    Awww so cute that you’re on vacay with your family! I’d love to do a big vacation with my family as adults. Our family has expanded with significant others and kiddos, and I’m sure it’d be a crazy awesome zoo of a vacation.

    To answer your question, yes, I totally try to convert my fam to foods I like and meals I make. Every time I stay at my parents’ house everyone expects for me to cook for them, and I love it! I just have to make sure to carefully tread the line of yummy while also being healthy, but not too hippy healthy for everyone ya know?

    My family are sooooo picky with oatmeal too ahhh I don’t think they’re right in their minds, yo. OATMEAL IS LYF.
    But I guess that’s a cool thing because more oatmeal for me that way, win win! I’d love to devour a huge jar of this heavenly concoction anytime soon. It looks brillante, my friend.
    Enjoy your vacation <3

    Most of my family is willing to try my cooking, and they usually really end up liking it. My brothers on the other hand…not so much. I made a raw pasta sauce with tomatoes, onions, basil, garlic and everything that is right with this world and my brothers opted to have jarred sauce. They wouldn’t even try my “healthy” versions. Oh well; their loss. The rest of the family moaned with delight…or something like that. 🙂

    Haha, nope, I’m not sick of it at all! Mainly cuz I reminded everyone every 3.41 minutes that I was on vacation and that was why I wasn’t on the Internet NOT because I suddenly became allergic to blogging.
    You make the best breakfast recipes! Peaches and cream makes me think of the fair and how wonderful that combo tastes when you are hot. What a wonderful way to wake up!

    I’ve never tried overnight oats – not sure I would like them since oatmeal in general isn’t my favorite.
    How’s this – if we ever meet and you make them, I will try them!!!

    I’m always trying to get my family to like foods I like, but I’m not always successful. I did get my mom to start eating oatmeal with chia seeds for breakfast, but she eats it plain – she won’t listen to me when I tell her that the addition of cinnamon and almond butter would be life changing!

    I love overnight oats! Definitely going to make this recipe when peaches are in season (which I hope is soon!).

    I remember when I could eat oatmeal, I never liked the fruity chunky stuff… That being said, my taste buds have changed a lot so I feel like I totally would now, except, now I cannot eat it – DAMN picky baby GiGi ruined everything!
