I am all about breakfast over here, but sometimes I don’t have time to whip up pancakes. I love prepping overnight oats when I know I have a busy week ahead - this just makes my life so much easier! Plus I always have frozen fruit in my freezer ready to go.
Some weeks I’ll prep something decadent like my tiramisu overnight oats, but right now I feel like having something fruity and filled with nourishing goodness, like these frozen fruit overnight oats! Plus, these overnight oats can easily be made gluten-free and dairy free.
Why You Need Overnight Oats with Frozen Fruit
- This is the perfect overnight oats recipe to use with your favorite out-of-season fruit!
- Frozen fruit is more affordable than fresh fruit, making this a great low-cost recipe.
- These frozen fruit overnight oats are packed with nourishing ingredients.
- This oatmeal recipe has protein in it thanks to Greek yogurt, but if you want to amp up the protein then you can add protein powder.
- Oats and chia seeds are going to keep you fuller for longer!
Here are some notes on a few ingredients- please see the full ingredient list in the recipe card below!
- Milk: use any milk you like here! I tested this recipe with almond milk. Be sure to use vegan milk if you’re dairy-free.
- Yogurt: I’ve used plain Greek yogurt to add more protein, but you can also use vanilla greek yogurt if you prefer, a regular vanilla yogurt, or a plant-based yogurt if you follow a dairy-free diet.
- Oats: Be sure to use old-fashioned oats here and not quick oats or steel-cut oats. If you’re gluten-free just check the packaging to make sure they are gluten-free certified oats.
- Frozen Fruit: use any frozen fruit you like, I used mixed berries here. The fruit will thaw in the fridge overnight.
- Peanut Butter: feel free to swap out peanut butter for another nut butter.
Step 1: In a large jar with a lid or in a bowl, combine the oats with the milk, yogurt, chia seeds, maple syrup, peanut butter, and frozen fruit.
Step 2: Cover the jar or bowl with a lid and place it in the fridge for at least 5 hours, but preferably overnight.
Step 3: The next morning, give the oats a good stir before enjoying them! You can top it with more berries and peanut butter.
Frequently Asked Questions
Nope, you can add the frozen fruit directly with the other ingredients! They will thaw in the fridge overnight.
I recommend only using old-fashioned or rolled oats in this overnight oats recipe. Quick oats will get too mushy and steel-cut oats will be too tough.
If you want to amp up the protein you can add up to 1 scoop of protein powder. I recommend vanilla protein powder.
Tips and Tricks
- This recipe uses slightly less milk than regular overnight oats. This is because as the frozen fruit thaws it adds more moisture to the oats, so we don’t need to add any more milk!
- Feel free to use any type of frozen fruit that you like!
- These overnight oats with frozen fruit can be made up to 5 days ahead of time, so it is perfect for meal prep.
- While you can have this in the fridge for just 5 hours before eating, I do recommend letting it chill in the fridge overnight to get the best consistency.
Storing & Freezing
Store the overnight oats covered with a lid for up to 5 days in the fridge.

Great Recipe. I leave it out the Chia seeds because I can’t digest seeds.
I add cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix with bananas. Yum
