Citrus is so perfect in this cold weather. Great idea sneaking those carrots in there!
Just made this. Wow, loved it. Loved the citrus, coconut, nuts. Just such a nice change from my regular steel cut oats. Thank you for sharing.
Here’s a healthy breakfast. Oats are my favorite in winter. Your’s look great.

I have wanted to try overnight oats and now I have your wonderful recipe! Thanks for sharing!
My family loves overnight oats. I would have never thought about adding carrots!
This looks really good! I attempted overnight oats once, and it was a disaster. It was a Alton Brown recipe and I’ve never followed anything of his since. I woke up to a blueberry swamp! Your post makes me want to give it another go.
I make overnight oats all the time, but never though to puree an orange to include in the oats–totally must try that!
