Hi! I’m here to share a quick very last minute idea for Mother’s Day tomorrow: berry cream overnight oats parfait! Long name, but a totally deserved one, since these are not your average oats. These parfaits, as the name suggests, are more like dessert, and definitely a good way to pamper your Mom in the morning. Or if you are a Mom, you could ask your kids to make this for you 😉 To read this post in Finnish, click here.
Vegan treats for Mother’s Day
I’ve seen lots of delicious Mother’s Day recipe ideas for cakes, pies and tarts, but rarely something as “ordinary” as oats.
My intention with this recipe is to show oats in a new more luxurious context. I call it the everyday luxury to have something as simple as this turned into a sweet fluffy dessert-breakfast. The ingredients are not fancy, but together they are magic ♥
Whether you celebrate Mother’s Day tomorrow or not, I suggest you surprise someone special with these cute pastel jars and take ordinary oats to the next level.

- For serving: lots of berries
- Mix all overnight oats ingredients in a bowl and let set overnight (or at least 2 hours) in the fridge.
- The next day when ready for serving: Whip plant-based cream with a hand mixer until it's thick. Add raspberries, and continue whipping until all berries are incorporated and the cream is pink and fluffy.
- Take 2-4 serving jars and put a layer of overnight oats and then berry cream and continue until the berry cream layer is on top.
- Serve with fresh berries.
