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.
How To Make
ONE: Start by making the strawberry milk. In a blender, combine milk and fresh strawberries. Blend for 30-60 seconds or until there aren’t any strawberry chunks left and you milk is smooth and creamy.
TWO: Next, in a jar, add in the oats, strawberry milk, yogurt, vanilla extract and maple syrup. Mix well with a spoon until ingredients are well incorporated. Cover with a lid and store in the fridge for a minimum or 4 hours or overnight.
THREE: The next morning, mix oats will and add on your favorite toppings. I did more plant-based yogurt, fresh strawberry slices and granola.
