Coconut-Mango Oats

Give plain oats a makeover with this quick, five-minute breakfast idea. Adding just a bit of toasted coconut, some vanilla extract and fresh (or frozen) mango provides plenty of flavor. We use oat milk here, but feel free to switch it to dairy or any other plant-based, unsweetened milk too.

  • 1 cup unsweetened oat milk

  • ½ cup quick oats

  • teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon toasted unsweetened shredded coconut, divided

  • 1 teaspoon packed brown sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¼ cup diced ripe mango, fresh or frozen

  • ½ teaspoon chia seeds


  1. Bring oat milk to a boil in a small pot over high heat. Reduce heat to medium. Stir in oats and salt; cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid is absorbed and the bubbles from the oat milk become smaller, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons coconut, brown sugar and vanilla; transfer to a serving bowl. Top with mango, the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons coconut and chia seeds.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
