SUBSTITUTIONS FOR BLUEBERRY OVERNIGHT OATS
Rolled Oats: I have not tried this recipe with quick cook oats. I think it would work, but they might get soggier quicker. I wouldn’t recommend it. Irish/Steel Cut Oats will not work in this recipe.
Greek Yogurt: You can substitute plain greek yogurt with non-dairy yogurt if you’d like.
Can I use normal yogurt for overnight oats? It’s best to use nonfat or full fat greek yogurt in overnight oats. Try to opt for a yogurt that is unflavored and unsweetened.
Milk: You can sub almond milk for any kind of milk (dairy, oat, rice, coconut milk, etc). Any kind will work!
Blueberries: You can try other fruit in this recipe! We also have a Berry Overnight Oats or Mango Overnight Oats recipe that’s delicious. Frozen blueberries will also work in this recipe. You don’t need to thaw the berries before adding to the oatmeal.
Can I put frozen berries in oatmeal?
Yes, you can put frozen berries in oatmeal! Frozen fruit is great in overnight oats. It will defrost as the oats soak overnight and will be ready to enjoy in the morning.
You don’t need to thaw the berries before adding them to the oatmeal.
