How to Make Overnight Oats with Strawberries
Overnight oats is one of the easiest recipes you will ever make – no cooking involved!
- In a large bowl, add oats, milk, yogurt, honey and sliced strawberries. Gently stir until combined.
- Portion into 4 glass mason jars and add a lid. These white reusable lids are my favorite.
- Put in the refrigerator overnight or for at least 8 hours for the creamiest consistency.
- When you are ready to eat, top with extra strawberries and enjoy!
Ingredients You Will Need for Strawberry Overnight Oats
- Oats. Rolled oats work best for this recipe in my experience. I love the chewy texture and that they hold up to well.
- Milk. You can use cow’s milk, almond milk, soy milk, rice milk…..whatever you prefer!
- Yogurt. I prefer plain Greek yogurt for this recipe, but you can also use vanilla if you like a sweeter flavor.
- Strawberries. Fresh is best if you have them available!

This looks awesome, oats and fruit is a must in my world, but never thought to add coconut and walnuts. That’s my take away, Thank you.
Thanx for showing the “real” photo, too! Can’t wait to try this!!
I can’t express how amazing that looks!
This just looks so yummy. Porridge is my stable diet to start the day. Never thought to add the 1/4 cup plain or vanilla yogurt.
Appreciate your kind thoughts on gluten free porridge as my wife has celiac disease.
Can you use steel cut oats?
Yes Julie- you can use any oats,and they should soften up overnight just fine.
Last time we used steel cut oats we used half the suggested water and cooked until absorbed then proceeded with the recipe. It was just right texture wise and we prefer them now compared to quick or old fashioned oats.
Thanks Jessie- We’ll try it that way!
This looks awesome! Is it served cold?
Yes Tara- Cold- it’s different, but yummy!
what brand oatmeal do you use? what are your thoughts on quaker oats?
I can’t wait to try this! Which brand of oats do you use? What are your thoughts on Quaker Oats brand?
So the oats are cooked before?
You do not cook the oats. They soak up the milk overnight. It is Awesomesauce. 🙂
Can you use frozen fruit? Should you thaw them first? In the wi tee, I have lots of frozen but not a lot of fresh fruit.
I can’t wait to try this. It looks reallly fun too, so I think my kids will get into it.
I would thaw the fruit first Amanda- but yes, you can use it.
Kelly- I’m not picky about brands. It seems like any brand just has the one ingredient oats. Our oats are actually a non-brand thing I buy in 50 lb bags at a local canning warehouse. But, in my mind- oats are oats (when they are just oats). I’m of course not talking about flavored oats- just regular stuff.
How long would you say these keep? A day or 2? These would be great to prep ahead!
I have done them up to a week out with no ill effects. They appeared they could go longer.
Kept scrolling down but no directions. Just a lot of blah blah talking. Get to the recipe. Yummly always does this.
