Why You’ll Love this Blueberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats Recipe

When I was developing this recipe, I was surprised at how much these overnight oats taste like blueberry cheesecake. The combination of whipped cream cheese, vanilla Greek yogurt, and lemon juice provide the cheesecake flavor. And you can savor that flavor while enjoying health benefits!

These overnight oats are easy to make and require no baking. You can prepare the oats the night before and enjoy them in the morning without any more work. Prepare a double recipe at the beginning of the week and have breakfast ready all week.

You can also customize the recipe to your liking. If you don’t love blueberries, you can make different kinds of berry cheesecake overnight oats with strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries.

Best Jars for Overnight Oats

I found these cute, convenient overnight oats jars on Amazon. These containers are the perfect size, have a screw-on lid, and a band that holds the included spoon. They have measurements on the jar, and you can clean them in the dishwasher. And you can use them for other food, such as a small salad, pasta, fruit, etc.

Recipe Ingredients & Benefits

I don’t know of anything that tastes like cheesecake but includes so many nutritious ingredients. The combination of Greek yogurt, oats, milk, flaxseed or chia seeds, and fresh blueberries makes this an incredible breakfast, snack, or dessert choice.

> Greek yogurt

The Greek yogurt is a great source of protein, calcium, and probiotics. I use yogurt with 0% fat to reduce the amount of saturated fat in the oats. The probiotics in yogurt are beneficial for many areas of your health: digestion, immune function, inflammation, and mental health.

> Oats

Oats are whole grains and are full of dietary fiber and many vitamins and minerals. They help to keep you feeling fuller longer and provide sustained energy. Rolled oats are sometimes called old-fashioned oats, but they are the same.

> Milk

You can use any kind of milk, but I use skim (nonfat) cow’s milk. It provides protein, calcium, vitamin D, and other nutrients without the saturated fat. If you are using a plant-based milk, make sure you choose one with high amounts of protein and calcium.

> Flaxseed or chia seeds

This recipe calls for 2 teaspoons of flaxseed or chia seeds. I actually prefer to use 1 teaspoon of each, and I use ground flaxseed meal. Both of these seeds are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, and they also add a crunchy texture to the oats. Omega-3 fats are important for brain and cardiovascular health, and they can help lower inflammation.

> Blueberries

Fresh blueberries provide sweetness and plenty of antioxidants (especially anthocyanins) to the oats. They give you an extra boost of vitamins C and K, fiber, manganese, and other nutrients. You can also use frozen berries if that’s what you have on hand.

How to Make Blueberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats

In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the Greek yogurt, whipped cream cheese, maple syrup, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and salt until smooth.
