Strawberry Coconut Overnight Quinoa

This strawberry coconut overnight quinoa is a healthy vegan breakfast that tastes like strawberry shortcake with hemp seeds, coconut milk, vanilla and fresh berries. 

This creamy, dreamy overnight quinoa is a healthy meal designed for breakfast lovers with no time in the morning. Make yourself a big batch of coconut milk and strawberry-layered quinoa at the beginning of the week, and you'll have a delicious breakfast you'll want to get out of bed for.

I'm a huge breakfast person (have you seen my breakfast ebook?!?), especially when it includes a nice serving of quinoa. These oats are naturally high in protein and keep you satisfied all morning long.

How to Make Coconut Overnight Quinoa

This is a no-bake recipe that tastes like dessert. All you need is a container or jar and a few simple ingredients:

  • Cooked quinoa. See my guide to making perfectly cooked, fluffy quinoa.
  • Chia seeds. These are high in fiber and healthy fats. Plus, they help your quinoa get its thick and spoonable texture.
  • Hemp hearts. Full of nutrients and fats, these little seeds help keep you full all morning.
  • Vanilla powder. Vanilla extract also works.
  • Stevia. Feel free to use your favorite sweetener. Maple syrup is also delicious here. If you want to try a new one, read Monk Fruit 101: Everything You Need to Know. 
  • Cinnamon. A touch of warming spice balances out the sweetness.
  • Coconut milk. I use canned full-fat coconut milk for the best flavor and texture. Just make sure you're using organic and BPA-free.
