Strawberry Shortcake Overnight Oats

Written by COA Nutrition Team On August 9, 2018

So easy to make and super healthy, these overnight oats taste just like strawberry shortcakes and are sure to be a hit with the kids!

INGREDIENTS

  • 12 strawberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 5 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup Greek or plain yogurt
  • 1 tbsp. strawberry jam
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Optional toppings: chopped fresh strawberries; maple syrup

DIRECTIONS

  1. Chop the strawberries into small pieces. If you are using frozen strawberries defrost them quickly by placing them in a bowl of boiling water for 2 minutes.
  2. Place the chopped strawberries in a bowl and mix in all the other ingredients. Stir well; cover the bowl and place in the fridge for a minimum of one hour.
  3. When you are ready to eat them, simply remove from the fridge and decorate with your choice of toppings. The oats can be eaten cold or else heated in the microwave for 30-60 seconds.

Tips of the Month MOBILE

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

“Use Your Oven”

Hands-off meals are the best! It seems everyone thinks a quick meal is stir-fry and, yes, while stir-fry is “easy”, it means you have to stand over the stove making sure nothing burns. (Plus, you have to carefully plan which vegetables are added at what time so they all cook evenly. Hardly a beginner’s dish!)

Cooking food in the oven is a “set it and forget it” operation. Simply prep your ingredients, season, place in a baking pan and go lounge or play a game with the kiddos!
