Go to breakfast!!

☺️ thanks so much, Jyotsna!

Really easy to make and super yummy!

Annemarieke - Aug. 2, 2023, 5:47 p.m.

I love this recipe!
I used frozen mango, but thawed and pureed it and added it in a layer on top of the oat mix. I used soy milk, but added a tbsp of shredded coconut as a topping to get the coconut flavor.
As I was out of almond butter, I replaced with 1/4 cup pecan nuts and added some fresh strawberries for good measure. 😊
This one is definately a candidate for the rotation. 😍

PUL Team - Aug. 2, 2023, 6:09 p.m.

Mmm these modifictaion sound delicious, Annemarieke! Thanks so much for sharing your experience with the recipe 🤩

Amy - July 15, 2023, 3:38 p.m.

Can I replace coconut milk with soy milk? For the oats, can I use any oats or it just it must rolled oats?

PUL Team - July 17, 2023, 7:50 a.m.

Hey Amy, yes you can use soy milk or any alternative plant-milk 🤗 as for oats, instant, rolled, or quick oats can work. We wouldn't recommend steel-cut oats teel as these are quite different. They're better suited for things like porridge (such as in this recipe:…). We hope you enjoy the recipe if you're able to give it a try!

Good recipe! The portion size is too big though, neither me or my husband could finish it. Next time, I will make one portion and split it in two. ☺️

Caitlin - March 13, 2023, 6:26 p.m.

My favourite start to the day! I make this on repeat for those busy mornings😍

Tanya - Jan. 24, 2023, 12:22 p.m.

So easy and so delicious!

Niamh - Dec. 6, 2022, 10:08 a.m.

Almond butter and mango - yumm!! This was such a delicious treat for brekkie!

PUL Team - Dec. 6, 2022, 6:12 p.m.

Aw so happy it was enjoyed, Niamh, thank you 😃

Isabelle Gomez - Nov. 28, 2022, 7:12 p.m.

So delicious and nutritious! Just made this last night and it was my first time trying overnight oats. Only had quick cooking rolled oats, but the texture still turned out great. Made the almond butter from your PUL recipe - so easy and yummy. Also added some freeze-dried sliced bananas lying around since that sounded good, too. I didn't have yogurt on hand but I'm making up for it with lots of mango 😉 Gotta try the other recipes - I've got my eye on the golden couscous one. I love this, thank you Sadia and team!

PUL Team - Nov. 28, 2022, 9:58 p.m.

Mmm sounds lovely, Isabelle, we're so glad it was enjoyed! We hope you enjoy the golden couscous if you give it a try 😃

Gia - Sept. 10, 2022, 7:29 p.m.

This was lovely. I'm a real mango lover so I added plenty. It was a lovely way to start the morning!

PUL Team - Sept. 11, 2022, 4:52 a.m.

We're so happy to hear, Gia - it means so much!

Grace - Aug. 1, 2022, 11:53 a.m.

I love this recipe! I’m trying to stay away from refined cereals and this is a great way to have oats in an interesting way instead of just the usual!! I only ever use your recipe! I used peanut butter instead of almond as I didn't have any and it was delicious. Thanks a mil and keep up the good work! God bless!😀😀😀

PUL Team - Aug. 2, 2022, 4:57 a.m.

So glad the overnight oats are being enjoyed, Grace, thank you ✨

Dear Pick Up Limes,
I need to write to you to let you know how much of an impact you have on my everyday life. I'm writing on this post because your overnight oat recipes are perhaps my favourite recipe variety of yours (especially the tropical kind). I eat your overnight oats every day of the working week, alternating recipes each day. Wow, your overnight oats are incredible. Truely, the highlight of my morning and something I look forward to making (its so easy, convenient and quick to make the night before) and eating in the morning. I've made my mum a range of your overnight oat recipes too, and she is very much in love herself. My family and I eat your dinner recipes on rotation, curries, soups, stirfrys, wraps, the whole lot! They are always loved and very easy to make. Unfortunately, my family isn't vegan but having your recipes on rotation definitely increases the plant based meals they eat and enjoy. I enjoy heaps of your other recipes too, that I eat daily but there are way too many to list! Seriously I love Pick Up Limes and not just the food but your philosophy of 'nourish the cells and the soul', it perfectly incapsulates the balance I strive for when eating. The new website is beautiful and so user friendly, great job Sadia and the Pick Up Limes team. Keep doing what your doing, it's incredible, you enjoy every bit of success and reward you receive and more.
Lots of love,
from Melbourne, Australia

PUL Team - Aug. 28, 2021, 6:40 p.m.

Aww, Martine, you're much too kind! A sincere thanks to YOU for being here and supporting PUL. It means so much that you're enjoying our content. Sending lots of love to Melbourne 🌻😍

Dylan - June 25, 2022, 4:09 p.m.

Hey Martine. I love your post. I noticed you mentioned eating overnight oats every day of the working week. I was wondering how you manage to keep variety when you do this. I have been working on this myself recently and have been getting slowly better at it though wondering what it has been like for you. I also have used a lot of the PUL recipes and they have been a great way to build my overnight oats game.

cam - Aug. 10, 2021, 6:14 a.m.

I love your recipes and your channel, but this recipe didn't turn out well for me. I found the oats tasting very bland, and then there were the mango pieces.
I really really wanted to like it, but I didn't 😔

PUL Team - Aug. 10, 2021, 5:30 p.m.

Hey there, Cam! We're very sad to hear the recipe wasn't enjoyed and appreciate the honest review! One thing we can think of is perhaps the mangos used weren't as fresh. For this one, we'd recommend using fresh mango to help naturally sweeten the oats.

The optional toppings also really help to add more flavour if desired. Our favourites are almond butter, mango, toasted coconut flakes, and unsweetened coconut yogurt. We hope this helps and you enjoy the recipe if you give it another try. The feedback is noted down to help us improve in the future in any case 😊

camila - Aug. 11, 2021, 6:22 a.m.

thank you so much for the advice! I'll do it again adding the topings you mentioned! Thank you for the attention and kindness !

Alice Marie - Aug. 28, 2021, 12:39 a.m.

If I may, I made it twice, and this time with ‘epautre noisette‘ milk- which has épeautre (orkisz), rice and hazelnut in it and this mixed with French almond butter and deliciousness and tangyness of mango was a hit :)

Janelle - June 8, 2021, 3:03 p.m.

This recipe is so good! My parents and I absolutely love it! I live in Belize, so mango season started a few weeks ago and I make my own coconut milk from coconuts. What a delicious breakfast! Thanks so much, Sadia! This is the second time I made this recipe this week!

PUL Team - June 9, 2021, 5:56 a.m.

Oooh mango season and homemade coconut milk sound delicious, Janelle! We're so thrilled the overnight oats have been enjoyed 😃

Alice - Aug. 28, 2021, 12:34 a.m.

Could you share your ‘recipee’ for your coconut milk when I buy a coconut ?
I like this recipe a lot ! Added some water as well, as I find it too dry as the amount of milk is not enough for me ;p

Janelle Mulvihill - Aug. 31, 2021, 1:57 a.m.

I don't really have a recipe for coconut milk....I just use a screwdriver to poke two eyes of the coconut and then I let the water drain into a cup and drink that. Then, I take a hammer to the coconut and open it up and use a knife to get out the flesh. I usually save some of the flesh to make milk when I need it. I just store the flesh in the fridge until I need it. I take out of the flesh, rinse it off, and put it in a high speed blender with some water. I never measure how much water. I then blend it and use it. I always use more than 1/2 cup of milk for this recipe-too dry otherwise. In the morning, I might even add more milk. I hope that makes some sense. I found this link from another vegan website I use sometimes. I've never tried her recipe, but it might help you

Cris S - June 5, 2021, 5 p.m.

A very fragrant recipe and a bit on the sweet side! I'd do it again with kiwis as well!

Louise Magnusson 🇸🇪 - March 22, 2021, 9:17 a.m.

I like the “mind-escape” to a more exotic venue in the morning with this overnight oat🌴
Although one serving might be over-filling sometimes😅
I guess that it’s partly due to the large amount of mango in the mix. I use frozen mango, as it’s a safer option in Sweden. However, I’ve found that I prefer this recipe with thawed mango pieces that I crush before mixing the rest of the ingredients. The flavour is better infused, and the heaviness of the coconut milk isn’t as dominant

PUL Team - March 31, 2021, 4:46 p.m.

We appreciate this so much, Louise, and are so happy you enjoyed it! Thawed and crushed frozen mango is a great tip 😀

Jessica - April 14, 2021, 1:51 p.m.

This is such a good tip! I'm also a Swede so I'm using frozen mango and I'm sure it'd be better to thaw and crush it! Gonna try that next time. 👌

Irina - March 22, 2021, 9:01 a.m.

Your recipes are absolutely amazing❤

PUL Team - March 31, 2021, 5:19 a.m.

You are absolutely amazing, Irina 🥰
