Key Lime Pie Overnight Oatmeal

Question: how necessary are key limes for a key lime pie? Would anyone be offended if I used, say, your average lime? Because that's what I did, and I'm not apologizing for it.


Since my Strawberry Limeade Oatmeal turned out so well, I thought I'd stick with the lime theme and test this Key Lime Pie Oatmeal. It's citrusy, vibrant, and ever so creamy, thanks to the addition of coconut yogurt.
(I have actually been using Amande almond yogurt lately, but I decided to return to So Delicious coconut yogurt this week. You know what? I think I like this better! I needed time away to remember how much I enjoyed it; absence makes the heart grow fonder.)


This is an incredibly easy recipe that takes only four ingredients and a pinch of salt. The most difficult part is squeezing the lime, and if that's too difficult for you, you could always just use the bottled lime juice. :) I won't tell.

    1. It should. The only difference is that any yogurt made from cow's milk will be tangier. It should work fine with the limes, though.

  2. I just found my way here from the internet, looking for something completely irrelevant. I'm glad I distracted myself though, this tasted great! So from all the way from Dubai, UAE, thank you for this!

  4. LOVE your recipes! My sister pointed me to your site about a month ago, and I've made almost nothing else for breakfast except your various oatmeal recipes since then. This one is a particular favorite, though I needed a bit of sweetener so I added a tsp of honey. And in trying to duplicate the pie a little bit more, I added a crumbled up a graham cracker. Yum!

    1. Nice! That's an excellent idea. I've always wanted to add graham crackers to my oatmeal, but it's not something I ever have on hand!
