Healthy Mango-Ginger Overnight Oats Recipe

Kick your breakfast routine up a notch.

Overnight oats are perfect for busy mornings when you don't want to prepare breakfast. However, if you eat them every day, you might be bored of the standard cinnamon and blueberry topping routine. If your go-to overnight oats recipe could use some help, spice things up with this mango-ginger overnight oats version.

Fresh mango cubes and grated ginger give this oat recipe a kick. And if you really want an explosion of flavor and texture, try topping your oats with pomegranate seeds, too. Think outside the box when it comes to which fruits go with oatmeal, and you might be surprised how much you like the result.

If you're not on the overnight oats train yet, it's worth giving this nutrient-filled breakfast a try. It takes just minutes to mix the ingredients together the night before you want to eat them. And you don't have to use a stovetop to cook the oats, either. They just steep in the milk or milk alternative (in this case, coconut milk), softening overnight. When you go to eat the mixture in the morning, you don't have to heat it up—just add any last-minute toppings and enjoy.
