Copy-Cat Healthy Starbucks Strawberry Overnight Oats
The best breakfast meal prep
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
- 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!
