These overnight Weetabix are insanely good. Slightly sweet, with a Weetabix base and raspberry jam swirl topping, it tastes like eating cheesecake for breakfast.
So, have you heard of overnight Weetabix yet?
It’s the latest iteration of overnight-ready breakfasts — thanks for the inspiration, overnight oats — and it’s taking the internet by storm. My Instagram feed is full of overnight Weetabix recipes, and the easy breakfast has even gone viral on TikTok.
But are they any good? Are they worth trying?
I say, YES.
Does It Taste Good?
I think that overnight Weetabix tastes great!
In my opinion, this recipe tastes a lot like cheesecake, thanks to the tangy Greek yoghurt combined with a sweet raspberry jam swirl.
Since greek yoghurt is the predominant ingredient in overnight Weetabix, the flavour is quite yoghurt-y. So choose a Greek yoghurt you like, since you’ll definitely taste it.
The Weetabix layer that goes beneath the yoghurt tastes pretty much just like soggy Weetabix. While this may seem like a turn-off to some, it pairs quite nicely in the recipe as a whole. For those who like a little extra sweetness, I’ve also seen overnight Weetabix made with a little bit of sugar added to the Weetabix layer. I didn’t think it was necessary for this recipe but to each their own!
In short, overnight Weetbix are:
- Perfectly sweet
- Smooth and creamy
- Slightly soggy, in a good way
Weetabix Vs. Weet-Bix
If you’re not from the UK or Australia, you might not be familiar with either Weetabix or Weet-Bix.
In short, they’re the same thing: a packet wheat cereal that comes in rectangular bricks.
Weetabix and Weet-Bix were invented by the same guy back in the 1930s. Weetabix is simply the British version of the cereal, whereas Weet-Bix is the original, Australian name.
Needless to say, both options work well in this recipe. Depending on where you live, I recommend using whatever is easiest to get!
Yeah, they do. But that’s kind of the point. By mixing Weetabix and almond milk (or other milk), you create a soggy base layer that kind of acts as a crust for the yoghurt topping. Don’t worry though, it’s delicious.
To let everything soak and set, I recommend refrigerating overnight Weetabix for at least 4 hours.
While this recipe is best eaten the next day, they would still taste great after 2-3 days as well. The only issue is that the Weetabix might get too soggy, but if you don’t mind soggy Weetabix in the first place — go for it. Just make sure you cover your bowl with plastic wrap or foil to ensure freshness.
Overnight Weetabix are pretty soggy by nature. In this case, we recommend making Strawberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats instead.
