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.

  2. I’m excited to try this . . . overnight breakfasts are a MUST with my big family and early school mornings.

    I’m also highly enamored of the jars you used to shoot the recipe photos. Where might I find some???

    1. You’re going to love it! And the jars are called Weck Jars 🙂 You can get them on Amazon! http://amzn.to/2ueecgz

  3. Delicious! I used used half the amount of hemp hearts and replaced the other half with crushed almonds. I also added about 1/4 cup of almond milk and used honey and maple syrup instead of Stevia. This recipe will make 3 servings! I will make this recipe frequently!

  4. Hi Alyssa,

    I don’t want to use the hemp hearts. Can this be made without them or is there a substitution you would suggest? Thanks

    Overnight oats used to be my go-to breakfast for busy mornings because it was so easy to pull out of the fridge and toss into a tupperware. Looking forward to mixing it up with this quinoa and coconut version 🙂

  13. I made this w/ coconut milk you can by in the refrigerated section and it was awesome! I served with blueberries instead and it was a perfect mid-afternoon snack! My 15 month old even tried it and surprised me by eating at least a 1/2 cup for himself! Thanks for the recipe. Super easy and tasty!

  14. Is it correct that one serving has 565 calories if you use maple syrup (not a fan of stevia)? sounds yummy but that’s way too much for one meal for me.

    1. I’m with you Faye! I’ve made many breakfast “puddings” and one of the ways you can adjust this is swap the full fat for lite coconut milk…it’s a third of the calories and less fat. I’ve also added some plain yogurt and it gives it a nice flavor. Also not a fan of stevia…you can cut down on the maple syrup a bit (I always taste and add as needed). There are a lot of calories in the quinoa/chia/hemp, but they’re good for you calories. These breakfast puddings are great, just make a few swaps and you can enjoy too!
