Overnight Tumeric Oats

I’ve been making a version of raw overnight oats for almost 5 years now, but what has changed is one big ingredient: coconut yogurt. I recently discovered that by adding coconut yogurt you can reduce the carb load AND increase digestibility. Because I like experimenting in my own kitchen before adding recipes, I thought I’d include some ‘Secret Tips’ that make will this fast, delicious, and easy for you. Another fun fact: oatmeal is a gluten free food. Why we think it’s gluten-containing is because certain brands process in facility with contaminants likeย wheat, barley, and/or rye. So if you have sensitivities, just get GF!


  • – 1/3 cup Organic Steel Cut Oats
  • – 2 TBP Organic Chia seeds 1 Cup Plant based milk
  • – 3 TBP Plant based yogurt
  • – 1/2 mashed banana (older bananas work great for this!)
  • – 1 TSP tumeric powder
  • – Pinch of pepper (to activate turmeric)
  • – Pinch of Cinnamon
  • – 1 TSP maple syrup (or no sugar at all)


  • – Seeds/nuts/granola
  • *I used mix of berries, coconut, edible flowers & sunflower seeds*


  • 1. Add powdered ingredients to plant milk followed by yogurt, banana and sugar (if adding)
  • 2. Add chia seeds & oats and begin vigorously stirring for 5 minutes until mixture is uniform and goopy
  • 3. Add any additional seeds or nuts you’d like to activate to mixture
  • 4. Allow to sit at room temp for 20 minutes then put in fridge. Store for minimum 5 hours


  • – The second step of mixing by hand is really helpful – it evenly coats all ingredients and creates the ideal consistency. If you skip this, you will get clumpy oats!
  • – The 20 minutes on countertop has always resulted in a better overnight oats for me
  • – Ideally whip this up before bed and allow to sit for 10-12 hours. I have even done 48 hours and it’s even more delicious!

    Nath, the over night oats are meant to be eaten in the morning! That’s why you need to soak for at least 10-12 hours, which with helps breaks and ‘cook’ the oatmeal without any heat. Hope that helps!

    Thank you for the recipe! I’ll make anything if it gives me the excuse to add more turmeric to my diet. โค๏ธ
