Orange Vanilla Overnight Oats

Ingredients: Makes 8 servings

Breakfast or Brunch

3 cups skim or non-dairy milk
5 3/4 cups old fashioned oatmeal, dry
1 cup water
1 cup orange juice
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
6 each whole cloves or star anise
2 teaspoons orange zest
3 pounds (about 8 medium) orange, peeled and sectioned
1 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt


  1. In a bowl, combine oats and milk, cover and refrigerate. Allow oats to soak overnight, not more than 15 hours.
  2. Combine water, orange juice, sugar, vanilla, cloves and orange zest in a saucepan. Bring to a boil.
  3. Dice oranges and add to saucepan. Cook uncovered, until tender (about 15 minutes). Remove cloves. Cool.
  4. In a small bowl or glass jar (at least 12 fluid ounces) layer the following: 1 cup prepared overnight oats, ¼ cup orange vanilla compote, 2 tablespoons greek yogurt.

Pro tip: Consider doubling the recipe and use half your compote at breakfast and half at suppertime. Orange vanilla compote would also pair well with savory dishes like bone-in chicken or roasted pork loin

Serving Size: 
1 cup prepared oats + orange vanilla compote + greek yogurt.
