Orange Dragon Fruit Overnight Oats

Orange Dragon Fruit Overnight Oats

Fruity overnight oats with orange, dragon fruit and coconut. A gluten-free, single-serving breakfast.

You know when you see an amazingly decorated cake. It’s perfectly frosted, gleaming with decorations, and you think, ‘Man, this is going to be the best freaking cake I’ve ever tasted!’

Finally, a slice of that gorgeous cake is sitting on your plate. You immediately shovel a spoonful into your mouth and … meh.

The cake’s way too dense. For some reason there’s both a layer of lemon curd and chocolate, which totally don’t go well together. All in all, it’s not a great cake. You’re officially a resident of Disappointment County.

That’s what my first taste of dragon fruit was like. The fruit looks amazing, if a little freaky. It’s so bright and pink and textured and pink. So when I first laid eyes on dragon fruit, I was sure it would blow my mind.

The edible part of a dragon fruit tastes like a cross between honeydew melon and a kiwi. In other words, blandsville.

However, I’ve since come to appreciate the scary looking fruit a little more. It has a nice texture and makes a welcome addition to a fruit salad. The key is to pair it with a fruit that actually tastes like something.

In that sense it’s a lot like a melon. There’s nothing worse than ordering a fruit salad and being given nothing but melons. But if you’ve got a mixed fruit salad with some melon – well, suddenly Mr. Melon’s looking pretty darn good.

If you find dragon fruit too weird or funky-looking – or if you can’t find any – then replace it with some berries, or some more orange segments.

Sure, the breakfast will no longer be Orange Dragon Fruit Overnight Oats. But, you know, close enough.

Single-serving recipe for overnight oats filled with a chopped orange, dragon fruit and shredded coconut. This recipe can easily be veganized by using dairy-free yogurt and almond milk.
Recipe type: Overnight Oats
Yield: 1
Ingredients
For the overnight oats
1 orange
⅓ cup rolled oats
1/2 cup yogurt
⅓ cup milk of choice
½ teaspoon vanilla extract

For the mix-ins
1 – 2 tablespoons shredded coconut
Dragon fruit, peeled and diced
Directions
Zest the orange, and then cut it into segments. Add the zest and segments to a bowl or container.
Add the rolled oats, yogurt, milk and vanilla extract. Mix until completely combined.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap (or put the lid on the container) and leave in the fridge overnight.
In the morning, stir a large spoonful of shredded coconut into the overnight oats. If desired, stir in some other chopped nuts and/or dried fruit. Top with more shredded coconut and some dragon fruit. Enjoy!
Notes
Yogurt
If you’re a fan of Greek yogurt, that’ll work perfectly in this recipe. For a sweeter breakfast, opt for a vanilla or orange-flavored yogurt. For a dairy-free option, try either soy, almond or coconut yogurt.

Dragon Fruit
I topped by oats with about one-third of a dragon fruit. Add as much or as little of the fruit as you’d like. Alternatively, skip the dragon fruit altogether and scatter over some berries.
