Pretty in Pink Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are one of my favorite breakfast staples because (1) they’re an easy make-ahead meal with just 15 minutes of hands-on prep work, (2) the oats are packed with nutrients, and (3) there’s no limit on the flavor combinations. So, when I developed my Strawberry Overnight Oats and Blueberry Overnight Oats, I knew I couldn’t stop there. I needed to make my favorite no-cook breakfast with all of the berries!

Besides being the perfect summer breakfast, these Raspberry Overnight Oats have a delicious balance of sweet-tart flavors and are packed with fiber and complex carbs to keep you full for hours. What’s better is that they’re made with just 4 simple elements – homemade raspberry milk, oats, chia seeds, and raspberry jam. What better way is there to celebrate raspberry season than with a creamy batch of cold raspberry overnight oats?

Ingredients for Raspberry Overnight Oats

All it takes are 9 basic ingredients to make these easy overnight oats with raspberries:

  • Raspberries: We’re going far beyond folding the berries into milk-soaked oats in this recipe. Fresh or frozen raspberries are blended into homemade raspberry milk and mashed for a raspberry jam layer. It’s double the raspberry goodness!
  • Oats: You can use quick oats or rolled oats. I like to use a 50-50 mix of quick oats and rolled oats for the best creamy-chewy texture. Steel cut oats do not work in overnight oat recipes. Instead, cook them on the stovetop or in the Instant Pot for a hot breakfast.
  • Milk: The oats absorb the milk to make them soft and creamy. I recommend using a thick and creamy plant milk, like cashew, oat, or soy milk.
  • Yogurt: For a little more indulgence and a tangy flavor.
  • Maple syrup: Grade A maple syrup is my go-to sweetener in overnight oat recipes. It adds a warm and subtle sweetness that pairs so well with the oats.
  • Chia seeds: This fiber and omega-packed powerhouse helps thicken the oats and makes the consistency extra creamy. 

How to Make Raspberry Overnight Oats

  1. Blend the raspberry milk ingredients in a blender until the berries blend into the milk.
  2. Mix the oats and chia seeds in a large bowl. Pour the raspberry milk over top and set the mixture aside to soak. Stir after 5 minutes to incorporate the extra liquid sitting on top.
  3. Mash the raspberries to make a thick “jam”.
  4. Fill mason jars halfway with the oatmeal. Add a layer of raspberry “jam”, then top off with the remaining oatmeal.
  5. Store in the fridge overnight. Add your desired toppings before serving, then enjoy!

Caitlin’s Cooking Tips

  • Buy gluten-free oats: Remember that not all oats are gluten-free because they’re often processed in environments with whole grains. Buy certified gluten-free oats to keep this recipe 100% gluten-free.
  • Use creamy plant milk: The creamier the milk, the thicker and more luxurious your oats will be! I like using cashew milk, oat milk, or soy milk. Even a thicker milk, like coconut milk, will work. To learn how to make the best non-dairy milk at home, check out my Guide to Homemade Nut Milk.
  • Getting the right consistency: Using both non-dairy milk and yogurt in overnight oats makes the consistency particularly rich, thick, and creamy. If you prefer a thinner consistency, swap the yogurt for an equal amount of milk.

Serving Suggestions

Raspberry overnight oats are a filling and nourishing breakfast or snack you can sit down and eat or take with you on the go. One serving has enough fiber and protein to keep you full until lunchtime. 

You can keep the oats simple or go all-out by serving them with your favorite toppings. Extra raspberries, a drizzle of almond butter, slivered almonds, chocolate chips, or vegan white chocolate chips would all be delicious.

I personally prefer chilled overnight oats straight from the fridge, but you can heat them up if you like warm oatmeal. Either heat the oats in the microwave or on the stovetop with an extra splash of water or creamy milk to prevent them from drying out.

How to Store Overnight Oats

Store the overnight oats in the fridge for up to 5 days. I recommend storing them in individual sealed mason jars or airtight containers so they’re easier to grab and enjoy for a quick or on-the-go breakfast.

Substitutions and Variations

  • Maple Syrup Substitutes: Swap the maple syrup for an equal amount of agave nectar, coconut sugar, or cane sugar (or the sweetener of your choice). 
  • Chia Seed Substitute: Replace the chia seeds with an equal amount of flaxseeds.
  • Add Protein Powder: For a boost of protein, blend 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder into the raspberry milk and add 2 extra tablespoons of plant milk. Omit the maple syrup or sweetener if your powder is sweetened.

Recipe FAQs

Are vegan overnight oats healthy?

Yes, overnight oats are a healthy breakfast with enough fiber, complex carbohydrates, and protein to keep you full for hours.

How long should overnight oats soak before serving?

Once the oatmeal mixture is divided into mason jars, I recommend letting them sit in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight for the best results.

Should I add toppings before or after soaking the oats?

It’s usually best to add the toppings right before serving the oats to retain their texture. However, if you’re in for a busy morning, you can assemble the toppings the night before.

These easy Raspberry Overnight Oats layer creamy raspberry milk-soaked oats and chia seeds with raspberry jam. A delicious make-ahead breakfast that tastes like dessert! Vegan and Gluten-Free.


For the Raspberry “Milk”:

  • 3/4 cup 85 g fresh or frozen raspberries no need to thaw
  • 1 3/4 cups creamy non-dairy milk*
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened dairy-free yogurt or sub more milk
  • 2-4 tablespoons grade A maple syrup* plus more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract optional
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon 1 to 2 tablespoons
  • Pinch of salt

For the Oatmeal:

  • 2 cups quick-cooking or rolled oats* gluten-free if necessary
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds or ground flaxseed
  • 1 cup raspberries for the “jam” layer (optional)
  • Slivered almonds for topping (optional)
  • More topping suggestions: extra fresh or frozen raspberries almond butter, chocolate chips, etc.


  • Make the Raspberry “Milk”: Add the raspberries to a high-speed blender along with the milk, yogurt, maple syrup, vanilla, almond extract, lemon juice, and salt. Blend on high for 45 to 60 seconds, until the berries are finely blended into the milk.
  • Mix: Add the oats and chia seeds to a large bowl and mix well. Pour the raspberry milk into the bowl and stir until everything is combined. Let sit for at least 5 minutes, to allow the oats and chia seeds to absorb some of the liquid. Then, mix again to incorporate the extra liquid sitting on top.
  • Raspberry “Jam” (Optional): Mash the raspberries with a fork until they form a thick “jam”; you can also keep the raspberries whole and just fold them into the overnight oats for a simpler prep.
  • Store & Serve: Fill each mason jar (or glass jar or tupperware) with oatmeal halfway, add a layer of raspberry “jam”, then top off with the remaining oatmeal. Store in the fridge for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. Top as desired and enjoy cold or warm; leftovers will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Recipe Notes

  • Non-dairy Milk: I recommend using a thick and creamy milk, like cashew, oat, or soy milk.
  • Maple Syrup Substitutes: You can use equal parts agave, coconut sugar, or cane sugar (or another sweetener of your choice)
  • Oats: I like to use a 50-50 mix of quick oats (creamy texture) and rolled oats (chewy texture) for the ideal blend!
  • Protein Powder: For a protein boost, add 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder to the raspberry milk ingredients. Add an additional 2 tablespoons of plant milk and omit the sweetener if your powder is sweetened.

    I’ve been eating overnight oats pretty consistently for about eight months and found this recipe just as I have been looking to change up to something new and fresh for spring. Yum. I used unsweet soy milk and added pea protein for more protein. I served with non dairy vanilla yogurt and berries instead of putting yogurt in the oats because it makes me feel like I’m eating a dessert a la mode. 🙂 I only used one TBSP of maple syrup and I doubled the berries. Now I need to get a Costco membership so I can keep my freezer full of frozen raspberries.

    I made the strawberry one, too, and although I loved the flavor of the strawberry milk by itself I think the raspberry oats is a better finished product. I did add some chocolate chips to the strawberry when I ate it, and that helped. But chocolate pretty much makes everything better. Maybe the strawberries I used weren’t sweet enough. Thank you for all the options!

    1. So happy we have someone to share our love for non-boring overnight oats with! Thank you so much for the review, Maria! ♥

  2. So I have a question to ask you, I got a couple of my family are gluten-free dairy, free nut, free, soy free and I was wondering if you have any recipes that you would recommend for Easter
