Amazing Vegan Blended Oats Recipe

Why would you want to blend your oats?

I love it when I discover some new food idea that I’ve never heard of before. It’s especially great when it’s easy and/or healthy and I have all the ingredients to try it. This is one of those times. Okay, have you ever heard of blended oats? I came across the idea on pinterest recently and it was one of those mind-blown moments. I don’t know why I’ve never thought of it before. It’s not complicated at all. The texture is like a slightly grainy yogurt and the flavor is super versatile. It’s a great way to switch things up if you are getting tire of basic oats.

How to Switch up Your Boring Oatmeal

Maybe it’s just me but there is something so fun and fancy about layered jars of creamy goodness. For this recipe I added fresh berries and whole oranges but you could honestly use any type of fruit. Actually, there are pretty much endless possibilities for what you can add as a flavoring. I’m thinking how amazing this would be with chocolate and peanut butter! Try using any fruit you like. Go tropical and use some mango and pineapple. Another option would be plain vanilla and plain chocolate layers and throw some chocolate chips in between layers. MMMMMMM!

Some Useful Tools for Making Blended Overnight Oats

Gluten Free Organic Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats: These are great for people who have trouble digesting gluten or even if you don’t they are easier on your tummy. I also prefer buying organic when possible to avoid known pesticides in the bigger oat brands.

Pure Maple Syrup: Nothing really beats the natural sweetness of pure old maple. my favorite.

Magic Bullet Blender: This thing is small, compact, easy to store, and easy to clean. It’s great for single servings like this recipe or small batches of sauces and dressings.

Getting tired of your basic oats in the morning? Let's switch things up for Summer!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Servings 4 - 6 servings


Berry Oats:

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen mixed berries
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk or any plant-based milk
  • 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup, or to taste (or sweetener of choice)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

Orange Oats:

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk or any plant-based milk
  • 1 whole orange, peeled and separated into pieces
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup, or to taste (or sweetener of choice)


  1. Combine all the ingredients for the orange oats in a blender or food processor and blend well. To get it very smooth it took me about 3 minutes.

  2. Scrape into a sealable container and repeat for berry oats. It can be eaten immediately but for best texture I recommend leaving it in the fridge for at least an hour.

  3. Serve in a bowl or layered in jars like the pictures with more fresh berries and whatever add-ins you'd like.
