Overnight Oats With Kiwi and Coconut Flakes

Overnight Oats With Kiwi and Coconut Flakes

Yield

Serves 2 (serving size: 1 bowl)

Overnight oats are a dream breakfast. They take less than 5 minutes to prepare the night before, and all you need to do is add toppings the next morning. Steel cut oats are ideal for this method since they still retain their toothy bite even after overnight (and 2-day) soaks without getting mushy. The key to getting them to the right texture is hot milk—it needs to be hot in order to soften the oats; cold milk simply can’t tenderize them during an overnight soak. For ease, you can divide the overnight oats mixture between two separate bowls or mason jars to make morning breakfast prep even easier.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup very hot 2% reduced-fat milk
  • 3/4 cup uncooked steel-cut oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 tablespoons plain whole-milk Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup chopped kiwi (from 2 kiwi)
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flakes (not shredded), toasted

How to Make It

Combine the milk, oats, and salt in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours. Spoon half of the soaked oats mixture into a bowl, reserving the remaining half for Day 3. To serve, stir in 3 tablespoons yogurt, and top with 1/4 cup kiwi and 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut flakes. Reserve the remaining yogurt, kiwi, and coconut flakes for Day 3.
