I love waking up to overnight oatmeal for breakfast, and this kiwi mango overnight oats recipe with coconut is no exception!
It’s a stunner, with tropical fruits like mango and kiwi and a sprinkle of shredded coconut for added texture and flavor.
Coconut Overnight Oats with Mango and Kiwi
Overnight oats are the perfect trifecta: creamy, healthy, and delicious!
And they’re so easy to make: all you have to do is combine the ingredients in a jar, shake/stir, and let sit in the fridge. And in the morning, you have a delicious breakfast waiting (and you can add more toppings to your heart’s content). There’s no cooking involved!
This particular recipe has a burst of tropical flavors on top of the base overnight oats you know and love. The creamy oats pair perfectly with juicy mango, refreshing kiwi, and sweet banana. And the shredded/flaked coconut gives it a bit of crunch (especially if it’s toasted).
It’s just what you need to brighten your morning! Plus, if your oats are in a jar or tupperware container, you can just grab and go. Gotta love that!
Tropical Overnight Oatmeal Ingredients
Here’s what you’ll need to make these mango overnight oats with coconut.
For the base:
- old-fashioned/rolled oats (use gluten-free certified if you’re gluten-free)
- choice of milk (dairy milk, unsweetened almond milk, etc.)
- ground flax (not 100% necessary, but recommended for the healthy fats! If not using flax, reduce amount of milk slightly)
- honey or maple syrup
- vanilla extract
For the toppings:
- unsweetened shredded/flaked coconut (I recommend toasted for a crunchier texture)
You can always switch up the toppings, too – maybe add some chopped nuts or a drizzle of nut butter.

How to Make Overnight Oats with Mango
Start by making your overnight oats base. Combine milk, oats, flax, natural sweetener (honey or maple syrup), and vanilla extract in a jar or bowl and shake/stir well.
Feel free to add a spoonful of chia seeds at this point if desired. This will give your oats more of a pudding consistency (and a nutritional boost). If adding chia seeds, be sure to stir well, wait 5-10 minutes, then stir again before placing your oats in the fridge. This prevents the seeds from clumping together.
Next, refrigerate overnight (or at least 3-4 hours). Then, stir your oats and add your toppings before eating! For this recipe, that’s diced mango, banana, kiwi, and shredded coconut.
If you want to toast your shredded coconut (which I highly recommend – it brings out a nuttier coconut flavor and adds a crunchy texture), just spread it out on a sheet pan and bake at 350 degrees F for 5-8 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes. Make sure to watch it closely, because it can burn quickly.
Sprinkle over your oats, and you’re ready to enjoy!
Can I use frozen mango?
Yes! If you’re using frozen mango, you have two options. Either let it thaw fully in the refrigerator ahead of time, or, when you’re ready to eat, microwave the frozen mango pieces for 30-60 seconds until it’s thawed.
Overnight Oats Topping Inspiration
There are so many ways to switch up your overnight oats flavors! Here are some ideas:
- Cocoa powder: adding cocoa powder to your overnight oats base gives it a chocolate flavor
- Chopped nuts: add walnuts, pecans, or sliced almonds to give your oats a nice crunch and nutty flavor, plus healthy fat to make them more filling
- Nut butter: a drizzle of peanut butter, almond butter, or cashew butter adds flavor and a creamy texture to your oats (again, and healthy fat!)
- Fruit: different fruits like berries or cherries are also delicious in overnight oats
- Chocolate chips: mini chocolate chips add a little sweetness and flavor
