For the Overnight Oats:

  • ½ cup pumpkin puree See Note 1
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) Greek yoghurt
  • ¾ cup (180 ml) milk - I use almond or oat See Note 2
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup See Note 3
  • ½ teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 cup (80 g) old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds See Note 3
  • ½ teaspoon pumpkin spice – sub for ground cinnamon See Note 4

Toppings (optional):

  • Greek yoghurt
  • pumpkin spice or ground cinnamon - a dusting


  • In a large bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, milk, yoghurt, maple syrup and orange zest. Mix well until you have a smooth mixture.
  • Add the oats, pumpkin spice and chia seeds and stir to combine.
  • Cover the bowl with clingwrap, or divide the mixture into two glasses or mason jars and cover. Refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight.
  • Serve with toppings of your choice and additional milk if the mixture is too thick.


  1. Pumpkin Puree: I use my Homemade Pumpkin Puree. Alternatively, you can use canned pumpkin puree. (Not pumpkin pie filling.)
    There can be a weight variation between homemade/canned - therefore, this is one occasion I recommend using a cup measure for accuracy. 
  2. Milk: use milk of your choice. I use almond or oat milk. Add more milk when serving if you prefer a thinner texture.
  3. Tablespoon: we use a standard Australian tablespoon which is 20 ml (4 teaspoons).
  4. Pumpkin Spice: I use my Homemade Pumpkin Spice Mix. Alternatively, you can use storebought or substitute for the same amount of ground cinnamon.
  5. Toppings: the toppings are optional (and are not included in the nutritional information).
