Mango Overnight Oats
I call this mango overnight oats my guilt-free “dessert” in a glass. It is pretty like a parfait and tastes delicious, almost sinfully. It is also healthy with the natural sweetness from the mango (no sweetener required), chia seeds (super food) and healthy fats.

I also love the cheerful yellow hue that will brighten any day. To serve, the mango-infused overnight oats are topped with cubed mango, coconut milk, almonds, walnuts and more chia seeds.
This is where I start from. First, mash the mango with a potato masher (if you are using very ripe mangoes, even the back of a spoon or a fork will do the work). Alternatively, add the mango flesh in a food blender with 1 tbsp milk and pulse for a few seconds to get mango puree. In a large bowl, add mashed/pureed mango, rolled oats, chia seeds, greek yoghurt and unsweetened milk (using soy here as I am cutting down on dairy). Mix well with a spatula, until the yellow hue is evenly distributed (as pictured above). Since I am using over-ripe mangoes here, the oats are naturally sweet but if it is not sweet enough, you can add a bit of maple syrup or honey to taste.
Perhaps the only sinful ingredient is the top layer of coconut milk, which is optional but an ingredient I love. The coconut milk provides a luxurious creaminess and accentuates the mango oats, reminding me of my favourite Thai mango sticky rice. Yum yum yum.
