Strawberry Overnight Oats

For years I’ve read that strawberries are not optimal for overnight oats. I listened, believed, and didn’t try it.

Ingredients for Strawberry Overnight Oats

This is a list of the simple ingredients needed to make this oh-so-yummy breakfast. The exact measurements are in the recipe card at the bottom of this post.

  • Greek yogurt (or plain yogurt)
  • Rolled oats (old fashioned oats)
  • Milk (dairy or milk of choice)
  • 1/4 cup fresh strawberries, chopped small

Optional Ingredient Add-ins

Here are a few add-ins I particularly love with this overnight oats recipe.

  • Chia seeds (or flax seeds): Chia seeds, high in fiber and containing quercetin, are a healthy powerhouse of antioxidants and an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. They also help fight inflammation and free radicals. Optional but super healthy addition.
  • Honey (or maple syrup): When my strawberries aren’t yet summer-sweet, I like to add a drizzle of honey to the mix.
  • Nutmeg: While all of these add-ins are completely optional, I love the extra flavor of a dash of ground nutmeg (or ground cinnamon) brings to this favorite treat. I never make it without adding this!

How to Make Overnight Oats

Overnight Oats are one of the easiest breakfast recipes you can ever make. Simply add yogurt, oats, milk of choice, fruit, and any add-ins you want to a lidded small jar or covered bowl.

Stir the mixture to fully immerse the oats in milk. Cover and chill overnight to let the oats soften and become creamy. I like to refrigerate for at least 4 hours, but preferably overnight.

Overnight Oats FAQs

Can you eat Overnight Oats hot?

You can eat oats anyway you like them. To heat, uncover, and microwave for 45-60 seconds. If the jar is filled to the top, you might want to transfer the mixture to a larger container or heat in a saucepan over medium heat until warmed through. 

How long can you store Overnight Oats in the refrigerator?

Overnight oats can be stored in an airtight container for up to five days in the refrigerator.

Can you use Quick Cook Oats for Overnight Oats?

You can use either raw old-fashioned rolled oats or quick oats to make overnight oats. Although with Strawberry Overnight Oats, I prefer rolled oats.

Are Overnight Oats Healthy?

Overnight oats, soaked in low-fat, high protein Greek yogurt are high in fiber and protein. Strawberries are also packed with fiber, vitamin C, and antioxidants. This healthy and hearty breakfast will help keep you full and energized for longer periods of time.
