What are overnight oats?

If you are not familiar with overnight oats, it is a make-ahead type of dish required minimal effort. The only that you need to do is to mix the ingredients together and just walk away. The main component is rolled oats which are soaked overnight with a liquid, which is usually milk (plant based or not). The possibilities of flavors are endless and here we will discuss one of our favorite.

What you will need

  • Rolled oats. You need to use rolled oats for this recipe to get the correct texture. Steel cut or quick oats will not work as well.
  • Plain yogurt. I used organic grass-fed full-fat yogurt, however you can make this with any non-dairy yogurt that you want. Just make sure that it is plain, with clean ingredients. Traditionally, overnights oats are made with milk but I wanted to boost the protein and healthy probiotics so I chose to use yogurt.
  • Chia seeds. To boost the protein even more along with the healthy omega 3 fatty acids, I added chia seeds. You can substitute with more rolled oats if you dont have any on hand but I highly recommend them.
  • Strawberries. My whole family loves strawberries when in season. On this recipe I blend the strawberries and mix with yogurt to make the liquid into which the oats will soak overnight. You might have noticed that I didn’t use any sweetener. The taste that strawberry adds is amazing and I feel like they give the perfect level of sweetness. If you want your extra sweet, feel free to add a tbsp of raw honey or maple syrup.
  • Almond milk. This is optional but you might want your overnight oats thinner. So before you serve them, stir in a couple of tbsp of almond milk. Personally, I prefer it thinner but my husband does not so feel free to do what it makes you happy.

How I served it


Panos is obsessed lately with his Bubba-boo eco-friendly bamboo lion bowl. Pretty much he will eat everything served in this bowl. So, for today’s breakfast I just served a portion of strawberry yogurt overnight oats, topped with strawberries and coconut.
