SUBSTITUTIONS FOR OVERNIGHT OATS MANGO
Rolled Oats: I have not tried this mango oatmeal 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. If you need a Steel Cut Oats recipe, this is our favorite Baked Steel Cut Oatmeal Recipe!
Greek Yogurt: You can substitute greek yogurt with non-dairy yogurt if you’d like.
Milk: You can sub almond milk for any kind of milk (dairy, oat, rice, coconut milk, etc). Any kind will work!
Frozen Mango: I haven’t tried to use frozen mangos in this recipe, but I think it would work. Frozen mango chunks are normally pretty big which wouldn’t be ideal for oatmeal.
Best Oats for Mango Overnight Oats
The best oats for mango overnight oats are old fashioned rolled oats. These are the only oats that will work for making overnight oats!
You can’t use quick cook or steel cut oats to make mango overnight oats. With quick cook oats, they can get too mushy when soaking overnight. With steel-cut oats, they can’t soak up the moisture overnight. They need to be cooked with heat to make them edible. If you need a Steel Cut Oats recipe, this is the one we love!
How to Store Mango Oats
Storing: This will last in the refrigerator for up to 4 days in an airtight container
Freezing: We don’t recommend freezing overnight oats. The oats can get soggy. It’s best to make and enjoy these oats fresh.
Reheating: You can reheat this recipe in the microwave or on the stove.

You can enjoy mango overnight oats warm or cold. I prefer to enjoy them warm and pop them in the microwave for 1 minute.
You could add in extra toppings like fresh mango, chia seeds, shredded coconut, or other nuts/seeds or serve with:
I hope you love these mango coconut overnight oats as much as we do! It’s easy to make, filling, and delicious!
Pretty much any fruit will be good in overnight oats. Softer fruits like bananas, berries, and diced mango are good for oats because they don’t really need to be cooked. We love our strawberry overnight oats.
