Step over, instant oatmeal packs! These Strawberries and Cream Overnight Oats are extra creamy, loaded with nutrients and sweetened naturally with strawberries!

Strawberry season is officially upon us. Meaning every time I go into the produce section of the grocery store and get even remotely close to the strawberry display, you can smell their sweetness immediately! No candle can ever imitate the smell of fresh, ripe strawberries! #justsaying

My husband and I have made it a tradition to go strawberry picking at a local farm. We’ve done it since we were first dating and it’s always been so fun! You basically get a bucket, they tell you which field to go into and you’re able to go pick unsupervised (aka you can eat as many strawberries as you want as you go LOL). Here we are this year:

We got a huge haul for only 6 dollars! Pretty awesome, plus it’s just a fun way to spend quality time with those you love. It will be so fun one day to take our future kiddos there!

So, you can totally bet your bottom dollar that I used those fresh, deliciously ripe and sweet strawberries in these Strawberries and Cream Overnight Oats! You may remember last year when I did another version of this recipe with Peaches and Cream Overnight Oats. Those were SUCH a hit, I knew this year I wanted to do another flavor of instant oatmeal that I used to love in a “healthier” form.

So, if you’re unfamiliar with overnight oats, you basically add oats, non-dairy milk and some form of sweetener of fruit in a mason jar. Mix it all together and set it in the fridge overnight (or honestly even just a couple of hours) and it all melds together beautifully.

These Strawberries and Cream Overnight Oats are SO delicious. They’re perfectly creamy even without the addition of heavy cream on top – which I still add every time because I love dairy so much LOL! I love the intense natural sweetness of the strawberries but you’re more than welcome to add a sweetener if it’s not sweet enough for you. I recommend a dash of honey or maple syrup! Let’s get into how to make these!

Ingredients you need:

  • ripe strawberries
  • old fashioned rolled oats
  • your favorite non-dairy milk of choice (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
  • heavy cream
  • chia seeds (for extra nutrients – optional)
  • additional sweetener (optional)

How to make Strawberries and Cream Overnight Oats:

In a small mason jar (or tupperware of your choice), add in ½ cup of old fashioned rolled oats. Next, add 2-3 chopped strawberries. To top it off, add about 1 cup of the non-dairy milk. Mix with a spoon and for good measure, shake the mason jar to make sure it’s all combined.

Set in the fridge overnight or for a few hours. When it’s time to eat it, add some more chopped strawberries, a tsp or so of chia seeds. If desired for extra creaminess, add a tbsp or so of heavy cream on top! Enjoy in the mason jar OR in a bowl. Whatever works for you!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk (I used unsweetened vanilla almond)
  • 3-4 medium strawberries, chopped
  • 1 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 tsp chia seeds (optional)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (optional)

Instructions

  1. To a small mason jar or similar tupperware container, add the oats, chopped strawberries and top it with the non-dairy milk. Stir with a spoon, put a lid on it and shake it for good measure to make sure it's all combined. 

  2. Let it sit in the fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight to make sure it all combines and the oats soak up a lot of the milk. Once ready to eat, add more chopped strawberries and a tbsp of heavy cream. You may add chia seeds for extra nutrients or maple syrup as an added sweetener but both are optional. Enjoy in the mason jar on the go or in a bowl!

Recipe Notes

To make these vegan: omit the heavy cream. 

To make these GF: use gluten free oats.

  1. Lol…I’m quite aware of those strawberry ‘you pick’ farms. Too funny that you eat as you go…that’s pretty much mandatory, isn’t it 😉 ? These overnight oats are a million times better than any packet stuff you can buy. I’d even eat this for lunch today! Pile on those yummy berries!!

    1. Thanks, Dawn! And LOL! Totally an unspoken rule that you must eat your weight in the berries as you pick them. Thanks, my friend! Hope you have an awesome weekend <3

  2. Oh lucky! I wish we had strawberry farms in the Caribbean. I tried growing them too… It didn’t work out – apparently strawberries aren’t fond of the heat. Frozen for me! Great recipe too.
