Raspberry coconut overnight oats can be so easy to make!
Once you make it a few times and decide how to make it to your personal taste, it will be even easier.
It’s pretty much the same recipe, except you switch up the fruit!
So choose your favorite fruit and you just might have your new go-to breakfast!
And by switching up your fruit, it can also be a good way to get some variety in your breakfast too, without feeling like you’re eating the same thing. Even if you are having overnight oats for breakfast every morning.
These raspberry overnight oats use coconut milk (Kerala literally means “land of coconuts”!), but for further variety, you can try this with regular milk or with almond milk too, and with or without yogurt.
What you need for raspberry banana overnight oats
Why chia seeds?
Chia seeds are practically a superfood.
This means that they give a whole lot of nutrients.
It’s really easy to add chia seeds to overnight oats that you might as well add them for the extra benefits!
Fresh or frozen raspberries?!
I like to keep things simple. 😉
Frozen raspberries just seem more simple, so for me, frozen it is!
But you can give it a try with fresh raspberries too.
How is this sweetened?
The mashed banana and vanilla yogurt both give this overnight oats a sweeter taste.
If you feel there’s not enough of a sweet taste when you eat the raspberry overnight oats, you can mix in some more vanilla yogurt then.
And if you’re looking for less artificial sugar while still having a sweet taste:
- Consider substituting the vanilla yogurt for plain yogurt
- Add honey
Coconut milk or coconut water?

Coconut milk has a thicker consistency, and it has a more powerful taste than coconut water.
Coconut milk also has more calories than coconut water. So if you’re looking to cut down on calories, you may give coconut water a try.
Or, you can also take the coconut milk and add some plain water to it to make a “light” version of coconut milk at home.
Raspberry orange overnight oats?!
You can also make raspberry overnight oats into a version of orange overnight oats too.
You can get that orange flavor by mixing in some orange juice or some canned mandarin oranges. (Or both!)
