I am not feeling super great today so I decided to take it easy and just get some stuff done around the house. I didn’t feel up to going to the grocery store, so I didn’t get any meal prep done which could mean a not so great week ahead for me. But I did manage to get one things done. I used some leftover strawberries to make strawberry overnight oats. I combined two recipes I found online. Thanks to My Fussy Eater and Dashing Dish for the inspiration. These oats are currently in the fridge, getting ready for tomorrow morning’s breakfast so I will update you later on how it turned out but I am very excited to give them a try. Here is what you will need:
1 cup yogurt (I am lactose intolerant so I used Tempt dairy free, hemp seed, greek style yogurt)
1 cup almond milk
1 1/2 cups steel cut oats
2 cups strawberries (sliced or diced)
2 tablespoons chia seeds
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Here is how to make them:
- First, in a large bowl take 1 cup of the sliced or diced strawberries and smash them with a fork. This will create some juice that you will also use in your oats.
- Combine all the other ingredients into the bowl with the smashed strawberries and the strawberry juice. Mix well.
- Separate out among 3-4 mason jars or other containers.
- Refrigerate overnight and enjoy!
These are super easy to make and only take about 10 minutes to make. Like I said, I haven’t tried these ones yet but the overnight oats I have had in the past have been delicious! It makes breakfast easy because all you have to do is pull these out of the fridge, add any toppings you may like (perhaps granola or chopped nuts) and enjoy. A quick and easy way to start your day!
