These Strawberry Overnight Oats aren't your usual basic oats. They're made with homemade strawberry milk and absolutely to die for! The best part? You can enjoy them all year round!
What Makes This Recipe Stand Out?
Getting up early and making breakfast is difficult for most of us and it's the reason we tend to skip it for that little bit of extra sleep. Am I right?
You don't have to choose between sleep and breakfast! With overnight oats, you can have both!
It comes together in just a few minutes and requires very little prep. These strawberry overnight oats are also made with homemade strawberry milk which makes them extra tasty and it's easier than you'd think!
Strawberry Milk or Chopped Strawberries?
Chopped strawberries are great here but homemade strawberry milk is even better! And I'd say it takes less time than finely chopping strawberries.
All you need to do is blend strawberries with some plant-based milk and vanilla and pour that over your oats instead of plain milk. I like to add maple syrup and almond butter for more sweetness and protein.
The reason this is better than just chopped strawberries is that the oats soak up all that strawberry flavor much more when you blend the strawberries with the milk. So delicious!

Yes! Most people prefer to eat overnight oats as is to save time but you can heat them up if desired. If you do, I recommend skipping the chia seeds for better texture.
