Cherry lime overnight oats is a simple and tasty make-ahead breakfast recipe with oats, yogurt, sweet cherries, and lime. Celebrate cherry season, keep your kitchen cool, and save time in the morning!


Units Scale
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 cup milk (I love plant-based milk!)
  • 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • juice + zest of 1 lime
  • 1/2 tbsp honey
  • 1 cup pitted sweet cherries, halved


  1. In a large mason jar or bowl, combine all ingredients except cherries.
  2. Shake well to incorporate.
  3. Allow mixture to sit in fridge overnight. In the morning, divide into two servings. Top each with 1/2 cup cherries (or more!)


*If you want, add cherries in the night before. Cherries tend to hold their shape pretty well, so they won't get mushy like some other, more delicate fruits/berries. Or, do both -- add them in the night before, and add more the next day.

*In winter, thawed from frozen pitted cherries would work well as a substitute! But in summer, if you have access to them -- go fresh, all the way.
