  • Mixing bowl


  • 1 cup rolled oats (use GF if needed)
  • 1 cup plant milk (I like soy)
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt (if vegan, use plant-based yogurt)
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 2 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • 2 tablespoon hemp seeds (optional)


  • Mix all the ingredients in a bowl or a large jar.
  • Cover with a lid and place in the fridge overnight or for at least 6 hours.
  • Before serving, taste and adjust the flavor if needed- more honey/maple syrup for sweetness or lemon juice/zest for tanginess.
  • Serve as is or top with fresh fruits.
  • Save covered in a refrigerator. Best consumed in the first 3 days.



If you don't have yogurt or prefer to make this recipe without it, substitute it with the same quantity of milk.
To make this recipe vegan, we recommend using unsweetened plant-based yogurts such as soy or coconut.
If you like your oats warm, you can always heat them up on a stovetop, after they have rested in the fridge.
