Vanilla Bean Latte Overnight Oats

During the epic kitchen remodel last fall, I went to my favorite local coffee shop to get my caffeine fix every single day. You see, I had no working stove to boil water, and only the gross utility sink in the basement to wash any dishes (but I was trying to get by with as few dishes as possible). I tried to borrow a single cup machine from somebody from an online forum, but it turned out it was broken (no wonder they let me borrow it, right?). After that didn’t work out, I decided that a daily coffee purchase would just be tacked on to the cost of the kitchen renovation.

The upside was that I became a regular at the coffee shop, and I’ve always wanted to be a regular somewhere (#lifegoals). As soon as I walked in the door, they would say “tall vanilla bean latte, right?”

Now that the kitchen reno is a distant memory and I’m back to making coffee in my French presses and Chemex, I like to re-create that treat at home. Stirring Silk Vanilla Almond Creamer and a touch of vanilla bean paste into my mug gives me all of that coffeehouse flavor, while still at home in my pajamas. The creamer adds a slight nutty flavor and just a subtle sweetness. It’s totally creamy but totally plant-based and dairy-free, meaning it has no cholesterol or saturated fat.

I took my love of my favorite coffeehouse drink one step further with these Vanilla Bean Latte Overnight Oats. Simply stir together old-fashioned oats, Silk Vanilla Almond Creamer, yogurt (or a Silk dairy-free yogurt alternative), and then a teaspoon each of espresso powder and vanilla bean paste. Let it sit in the fridge overnight, and you have a grab-and-go breakfast that will make you look forward to getting out of bed the next morning!

  1. You got me with this one, Lori!  I’m a big fan of overnight oats, and these sound wonderful.  I’m not familiar with the Silk Vanilla Almond Creamer – does it come in smaller packages?  I ask because it’s a product I would otherwise probably not use (I’m not a coffee drinker and my husband doesn’t like flavors in his coffee). I’m also curious if there is something else one could substitute for the creamer?  Thanks.

    • Hi Susan! This creamer does come in pint-sized containers too, although I only saw the quart size at my store. Overnight oats are pretty forgiving as far as basically just soaking up whatever you add to them, so I would sub vanilla almond milk or regular almond milk if you can’t find the creamer, and you’ll be all set!

  2. It’s been a while since I made overnight oats, but this recipe makes me want to whip up a batch! Such a simple breakfast, but with vanilla bean paste it really becomes decadent. Yum!

  3. Hey Lori!! I wanted to share that I made a double batch of this to bring to our family vacation in OBX this week- everyone just loved it! We paired it with some fresh blueberries we bought at a stand along the road to the beach and it was amazing. A great alternative to the Duck Donuts that seem to appear on our table each morning lol. Satisfies the sweet craving without the guilt. Thanks for sharing this!

  4. Oh my gosh I am in LOVE with these photos. And that tray!! When Silk shared this on their Facebook page I had to pop over. I’m obsessed with all things teal/turquoise 🙂 Love your site! It’s super fun.

    And these overnight oats sound incredible. Love using fresh vanilla beans, so much flavor!

    • Thanks so much Ashley! I found that teal tray in a gift shop up north somewhere. We usually use it as a catchall for keys, sunglasses, etc., but I dumped all of that stuff off it for this shoot! LOL
