These mango turmeric overnight oats are packed with over 20 different vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.I kind of fell in love with overnight oats this spring when I made those carrot cake overnight oats for Easter. Ever since then, I’ve been obsessed with the idea of making my breakfast the night before so I have one less thing to do in the morning. I love sleep. Like could sleep ten hours each night if I had a schedule that would allow it. And so I’d much rather make my breakfast the night before if it means catching an extra 15 minutes of sleep in the morning. Every. Minute. Counts. People.

Plus, I just like the idea of overnight oats. You throw all your ingredients together in under five minutes and then overnight, the magic happens. The oats absorb all the liquid and you have creamy, delicious oats. Usually, I’m not one for oatmeal in the summertime – they’re too hot and I’m usually already sweating my butt off in the morning. But overnight oats are typically served cold, so voila! Problem solved! Now I have a chilled creamy cup of nutritious and delicious oats that I can eat all summer long.

If you’re making overnight oats, I suggest making a few servings and pre-portioning them into little mason jars or tupperware containers so that you have them to grab-n-go for the rest of the week. The possibilities are endless when it comes to overnight oats, you can flavor them however your little heart desires. Make ’em sweet or savory. Add fruit, spices, herbs, nuts, seeds, an-y-thing.Gluten Free Mango Turmeric Overnight Oats My latest creation I’m super excited about because it contains two things I can’t get enough of right now: turmeric and mangos. These two ingredients are like a match made in antioxidant heaven. Turmeric’s spicy, gingery, peppery flavor perfectly complements the sweet mango. Plus, both mango and turmeric are loaded with antioxidants – you know, those chronic-disease fighting nutrients we need to incorporate more of into our diets. Curcumin, the active substance in turmeric, has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and has been shown to enhance antibody and immune cell response (to learn more about how turmeric impacts your health, check out my e-book, Nourish Your Namaste). And mangos are rich in the antioxidant vitamin A, which is essential for vision and helps maintain healthy skin and vitamin C, which is important for wound healing and immune function. Plus, research has linked the polyphenolic compound, gallotannin, found in mangos, to anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory activities. As if you needed another excuse to eat this sweet, juicy fruit.

I round out the mango and turmeric with some cinnamon, ginger, honey and top it off with coconut milk. The flavor profile made me feel like I was somewhere exotic, staring off into a jungle or the ocean. Definitely not like I was at my kitchen table reading the news on my iPad in my PJs. The turmeric and mango turns the oats a bright, bold yellow color and the coconut milk makes them taste extra creamy and tropical.Vegan Mango Turmeric Overnight Oats Top these oats off with extra fruit, nuts and/or seeds – whatever your little tastebuds desire. I topped mine off with some fresh raspberries, sliced almonds and chia seeds. Enjoy and let these overnight oats transport you to your tropical destination of choice.
