Overnight oats with Greek yogurt make a fulfilling and high-protein breakfast, providing you with enough energy to last until lunch.
I’m in awe of these overnight oats soaked in yogurt because they’re soo fantastically creamy after absorbing the yogurt. It feels like leaving yourself a kinder surprise for the morning. And, the really awesome thing is the versatile topping. I mean, you can add any fruits, nuts, seeds, and other delicious whatnots.
My favorite combo is with oats with strawberries, blueberries, a few slices of banana, and almonds. Now that I’m writing about oats, I want to have breakfast again. LOL.
Here’s how to make overnight oats with Greek yogurt.
My base recipe for this oatmeal breakfast consists of only three ingredients. For one serving, I combine approximately 50 g of uncooked rolled oats with 120 grams of low-fat Greek yogurt and a tablespoon of honey.
I stir until the ingredients are completely incorporated. Then, cover the bowls, and off they go into the fridge. Occasionally, I add a few drops of vanilla extract for an extra flavor.
Overnight oats with Greek yogurt is a no-cook recipe. Just prepare the ingredients a night before you plan to enjoy oats at breakfast and allow the yogurt to perform its magic while you rest.
Although a lot of us use the words ‘oats’ or ‘oatmeal’ to refer to the same delicious breakfast, there is a difference between the terms.
Oats are typically raw and unprocessed whole oats. They’re shaped cylindrically and are often fed to livestock.
Oatmeal, on the other hand, refers to the rolled oats that are cut thinly so that we can cook them within a few minutes. So basically, oatmeal is the processed whole oats that we purchase from supermarkets.
Where can you store your overnight oats with Greek yogurt?
Bowls are the most accessible because they’re present in every household. They’re my number one choice when it comes to overnight oats with Greek yogurt. After mixing the ingredients, I cover each bowl (depends on how many servings I make) with kitchen foil and off they go into the refrigerator.
Jars are practical with their lids and the ability to carry them in your purse if you need a breakfast on the go. They also look fancy.
Food storage containers, as well as jars, are also an excellent choice to soak oats overnight.
- Make the overnight oats dairy-free with almond milk (I will post a recipe for this one), coconut milk, or soya milk.
- Dairy-free yogurt. I recommend the creamy plant-based yogurts from Alpro, however, you can choose what best suits you.
- Use whole milk instead of yogurt.

- Cover with kitchen foil and refrigerate overnight, or for at least 6 hours. You can also use a jar or a glass container with a lid instead of a bowl. These will work perfectly for the overnight oats with Greek yogurt.
- Serve with fresh fruits (strawberries, bananas, blueberries, apple); nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans, cajun, pinenuts); seeds (pumpkin seeds, chia seeds); or dried fruits (cranberries, raisins, dates). Add peanut butter or almond butter for a more nutty flavor and extra protein.
