Jump To Recipe

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???

  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

  12. 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!

  13. 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.

    • I’d say use the lite coconut milk as Laura suggested. It would cut the calories significantly!

    • 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!
