Ingredients And Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Strawberry Overnight Oats. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

Old fashioned rolled oats work best for this recipe. I love getting a container at my local Trader Joe’s, but any brand will work. Unfortunately. quick oats and steel cut oats won’t work the same.

You can use any type of milk or nut milk alternative, to keep this recipe vegan, use a dairy free milk such as oat milk, almond milk, cashew milk, or coconut milk.

Since we will be blending the milk and strawberries together, fresh strawberries will work best. Otherwise, you can opt for frozen.

A touch of vanilla extract adds a ton of flavor to any recipe.

Use pure maple syrup to sweeten these oats up a bit without adding in any refined sugar. Alternatively, you can use agave, honey or date syrup.

A plain, plant-based yogurt makes these oats really creamy and thick. You can use vanilla or even strawberry yogurt if preferred. If not vegan or dairy free, opt for greek yogurt for a tart flavor.

Tips And Tricks

If you don’t have a blender, chop up some strawberries and or mash them before mixing in with the remainder of the ingredients.

If you don’t like the texture of overnight oats, try blending them to create a more pudding like texture.
