Copy-Cat Healthy Starbucks Strawberry Overnight Oats


I don’t know about you, but I am a huge fan of Starbucks Strawberry Overnight Oats, however, I am not a huge fan of all the sugar that’s in them! So, I decided to make my own copy cat version that tastes JUST as good but has way less sugar!

Overnight oats are a life savor for me in the mornings. Now that I am back to work full time, my mornings are planned out down to the last second before I have to leave my home to get to work on time. Having breakfast prepped and ready to go not only saves me time but also ensures that I will have a whole-some and healthy breakfast rather than grabbing something quick that wouldn’t be as satisfying.

Between making my own homemade vanilla latte and now these copy cat Starbucks overnight oats, I think that I have pretty much mastered my own Starbucks run, not to mention, saving a ton a money while doing it.

Ingredients in Strawberry Overnight Oats

What sets these oats apart from most overnight oats recipes is that this recipe has a secret grain, quinoa! I have tried this recipe both ways, between pre-cooked quinoa and just allowing the quinoa to set overnight in the fridge. Both work, however, I like to use pre-cooked quinoa better for a few reasons.

If you put the quinoa in the bowl with the oats overnight, they don’t fluff up as cooked quinoa would. You are going to have a small amount of crunch, while pre-cooked quinoa is nice and fluffy and blends nicely with the old-fashioned oats!

The rest of the ingredients to make these Strawberry Overnight Oats are

  • Old fashioned oats
  • Coconut milk
  • Agave
  • Toasted Coconut
  • Sliced toasted almonds
  • Fresh Strawberries

PSA- a huge LIFE HACK. If you own an air fryer, you can simply add your coconut on a single layer and “fry” at 350 for 3-5 minutes. This is so fast and helps you so that you don’t have to turn your oven on. Especially during the summer time, I avoid this at all costs.

How to make Starbucks Strawberry Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are really one of my favorite recipes to make. It a matter of 3 minutes you will be prepped and there aren’t much dishes you have to clean afterwards.

To make, you simply will add old fashioned oats and quinoa to a medium bowl with the coconut milk and agave. Mix well, and store in a container with a tight lid in the fridge over night. THAT’S IT.

In the morning, mix well and top off with toasted coconut, almonds and fresh strawberries! It really can’t get any easier than this!

    I am so excited to try making this! I am in love with Starbuck’s version and hate all of the sugar (and $$$). I do wonder, though, if you left chia seeds out intentionally? If I want to add them back in, do you know about how much?

    • Hi Shawna!
      I think you will love this recipe! It tastes like the real deal! I didn’t add chia seeds to this recipe. What shows in the photo is the quinoa, but you can totally add in chia seeds no problem! I would suggest 1 Tbsp! Let me know how it turns out for you!!

  2. This recipe is so delish! I added chia seeds to my recipe and it turned out wonderful! Healthy, fulfilling, and yummy!

  3. Do you use canned coconut milk?

  4. Chelsea Pearre

    How long do you think it would last in the refrigerator if I made more than one a night? I work 3rd shift and would be so much easier to just make a few, grab and go

    • Hi Chelsea! You can keep overnight oats in the fridge all week if you’d like. I always like to make a big batch Sunday night and have some on hand throughout the week! I would say 5 days max to ensure freshness.

  5. Traci Walker

    I cannot wait to make this recipe. Did you happen to tally up the calories?

  6. This receipt was clean fast and easy. I prep this now for myself and the kids in advance so it makes for an easy breakfast to get our day started. I need to try this with or integrate Chia seeds versus quinoa; since the kids are not keen on it.

    Can I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk? Ty!
