Strawberry Overnight Oats made with yogurt are the perfect make-ahead, grab-and-go breakfast for weekday mornings. They are nutritious, yummy and easy to make vegan or gluten free.

Other day-starters I turn to are freezer breakfast sandwiches, egg and sausage breakfast taquitos, and apple pancakes. Two cups of Overnight Strawberry Oats topped with fresh fruit and chia seeds. What I love most about Overnight Oats is how nutrient rich and filling they are, plus the ingredients are ones I always have on hand. They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day so it’s nice to get started with something that isn’t just empty carbs. Five minutes invested in the evening and your breakfast is waiting for you when you are ready for it. It’s got great staying power and will keep you satisfied till lunch.

Ingredients for Strawberry Overnight Oats

  • Yogurt – we use strawberry, but plain, Greek, vanilla or a non-dairy yogurt all work great.
  • Milk – we use plain or vanilla almond milk, but any type of milk or soy milk will work.
  • Oats – we use name-brand, old-fashioned, rolled oats.
  • Fresh strawberries & bananas or other seasonal fruit (peaches are particularly yummy when available).
  • Chia seeds (optional) – adds nutrients as well as a thick and creamy texture.

  1. 5 stars
    If I want my 4 yr old preschool class to make these, I assume it would feed 2, right? If so, can they be made in a bowl without a lid and put in the fridge? I use little bowls from Ikea. Just want to try this this year as a I have a child with dairy issues so I want to have something fun for her.

  2. Any safety tips I could use when making with children. Like cutting the fruits or how to avoid choking hazards? I am using this recipe as part of an assignment and I’m required to do this with young children.
