These Strawberry Vanilla Overnight Oats are a breakfast meal-prep miracle! All you have to do is throw all of the ingredients into a jar, let them sit overnight, and breakfast is ready in the morning.
Not only are these overnight oats tasty, but they are packed with fiber and protein to keep you satisfied until lunch!
We Love Oatmeal!
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, but soaking my oats in a liquid such as almond milk, Greek yogurt, etc.
For this creative overnight oats recipe, I decided to bring strawberries center stage and puree them with Greek yogurt and almond milk and then mixed that deliciousness with rolled oats.
Must-Have Ingredients for Overnight Oats
- Liquid (almond milk, milk, Kiefer, etc)
- Rolled Oats
- Chia Seeds
- Sweetener (maple syrup, honey, etc.)
I like to mix Greek yogurt and almond milk for my liquid. I have found that using rolled oats gives it a much better texture. Chia seeds make everything better and add a healthy dose of Omegas to your meal.
If you don’t use sweet almond milk or flavored yogurt, I suggested a few teaspoons of honey, but that’s just my preference!
I am a toppings girl. I love mixing textures. On top of this healthy breakfast, I added sliced banana, strawberries, and chopped pistachios. Feel free to top yours with any of your favorites such as:
- nut butter
- fresh fruit
Creamy Strawberry Vanilla Overnight Oats
- 1 cup nonfat, plain Greek yogurt
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk or any kind of milk
- 1 cup fresh strawberries sliced
- 1.5 cup rolled oats
- 3 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon honey
- First, blend Greek yogurt, almond milk, honey, and strawberries together. It will look like a strawberry milkshake!
- Next, place the mixture into a medium-size bowl and mix in 3 tablespoons chia seeds and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Then, mix in rolled oatmeal.
- Place in refrigerator overnight or for at least 2 hours. Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
I use ricotta instead of yogurt and frozen berries instead of fresh. Sometimes I add dried dates and/or tahini. Why? Because that’s what I have!
Do you first add it all to a blender? I love dates and frozen berries are more affordable. Lmk! I’m new to the overnight oats game 🙂
it was ok. not sweet enough, had to add a lot of honey on top.
Not sure how the calorie count of 321 is possible with this recipe considering just one cup of oatmeal alone is 300 calories… https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/raw-oats#nutrients
I was thinking the same and then saw it serves 3 😀
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.
These were horrible – very bland and sour tasting. My greek yogurt and milk were fresh and tasted great, but the oatmeal itself was not good.
This was so easy to make and SO GOOD! My first time trying a FFF overnight oats recipe and I’ll definitely be trying more.
Thank you for awesome article and amazing photographs! Keep up the good work!
Could you use quick cooking steel cut oats?
I haven’t tried it with that!
Hi, I just made these and they look delicious! How long can I leave them in the fridge? I made multiple servings. Are they good for the week? Thanks!
I made a single serve of this last night, because I wasn’t sure how I’d like it and I’m the only one in the house who eats overnight oats. I sweetened it with a little maple syrup instead of honey and used Noosa brand vanilla bean yogurt, so I left out the vanilla extract. It was incredible! So delicious, I never would’ve thought to blend the berries with my liquid and yogurt. I’ve already made another batch for tomorrow and you’ve got a new follower 🙂 thank you!
Sooooo good, right?! Glad you loved it <3
This looks really delicious just made a batch and its in fridge overnight.
The serving size says 1/3 at 321 calories… If I eat the whole thing, is that 963 calories? little confused
That is correct!
i am SO with you – i eat overnight oats/some form of oatmeal basically every weekday. it’s super convenient since i go to the gym in the morning and then eat my breakfast at work right after. also, as you’ve pointed out, the combinations are endless!!!
This is why oatmeal is actually the most bestest food in the whole wide world!
haha I like that you call it a RANT when it’s clearly a RAVE! you are so awesome at networking…I don’t know how you do it!
Also I like that you have the same thing for breakfast everyday…because so do I! PB toast. Every. day.
I guess I don’t know the difference. Is rave more positive than rant?! PB Toast..good choice, my lady!
only you can make overnight oats look amazing!!! I think it is the toppings…. may have to try this recipe… maybe I can get over it being cold!
Speaking of meeting people….. I know we’ve met 🙂 But we still need to get together for a cooking date sometime!!
I know I know! Just invite yourself over. Seriously!
Overnight oats are my favorite!! I love the idea of blending the milk, yogurt and fruit together for the liquid base. How much rolled oats do you use? It doesn’t say in the recipe. Thanks! 🙂
OMG. That is kind of a big deal, I can’t believe I left that out! And I’m surprised no one else caught that. THANK YOU. 1.5 cups. Just updated the recipe!
No problem! I had to read it over and over to make sure I wasn’t just missing it! Thanks! 🙂
Looks in to me! 🙂
