“I love the simplicity of overnight oats. The extra step of blending the ingredients first was worth it. These were thick and so filling that I halved each serving and ended up with breakfast for the entire week.” – Jaqueline Jackson

You may not know this, but I eat oatmeal EVERY SINGLE MORNING (unless it’s the weekend). Oats + Banana + PB is my favorite combination. 

During the warmer months, I like to mix it up and eat overnight oats and I like to soak my oats in a liquid such as almond milk, Greek yogurt, etc. For this creative overnight oats recipe, I decided to bring strawberries to the center stage, puree them with Greek yogurt and almond milk, and then mix that deliciousness with rolled oats.

Must-Have Ingredients for Strawberry Overnight Oats

  • Liquid (almond milk, milk, Kiefer, etc): Makes the oats super creamy. I like to mix plain Greek yogurt and almond milk for my liquid. 
  • Rolled Oats: I have found that using rolled oats gives it a much better texture. 
  • Chia Seeds: Chia seeds make everything better, and add a healthy dose of Omegas to your meal.
  • Sweetener (maple syrup, honey, etc.): If you don’t use sweet almond milk or flavored yogurt, I suggested a few teaspoons of honey, but that’s just my preference!
  • Fresh strawberries: I sliced these and mixed them directly into the overnight oat mixture. Don’t worry about them being too chunky, as we blend them up in a high-speed blender. 

How long do overnight oats need to soak before I can eat them?

We recommend at least 2 hours so the oats can soak up all the liquid.

here’s a tip!

We HIGHLY recommend blending the Greek yogurt, almond milk, honey, and strawberries together. It makes the oats super creamy and smooth. 

Variations and Substitutions

  • Any type of milk will work for this recipe. If you want to use non-dairy milk, I suggest using almond milk, cashew milk, soy milk, or coconut milk
  • I used honey as my sweetener, but pure maple syrup would be a great choice!
  • Swap the vanilla extract for almond extract for a different flavor profile. 
  • Boost the protein by adding a scoop of protein powder to your overnight oat mixture. Check out our Guide to the Best Protein Powder.
  • Swap the Greek yogurt for regular yogurt or non-dairy yogurt to keep things dairy-free. 

Can I make a big batch of this recipe for meal prep?

Absolutely! This recipe makes 3 servings, so you can double it for the week if you like! Store each serving in an airtight container to grab for an easy breakfast throughout the week. Keep in mind that the oats will only last for around 5 days in the fridge, so you may want to disperse some extra oats into each serving to make 5 servings instead of 6.

Storing Strawberry Overnight Oats

Since this recipe makes 3 savings, I recommend storing the oats in mason jars or airtight containers. The oats will last in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Serving Overnight Oats

If you want to ramp up the protein but don’t want to add protein powder to your oats, serve up your oats alongside some breakfast classics like hard boiled eggs (in oven), cheesy sous vide egg bites, or oven-baked bacon!
