Strawberry Overnight Oats

Strawberry Overnight Oats!

I’ve been coming across Overnight Oats recipes all over the web but never got around to trying it out for myself. Since I’ve generally seen overnight oats recipes prepared with berries and other exotic ingredients I rarely have access to – I gave a pass on them until very recently. When I received two boxes of fresh strawberries, I thought – strawberry overnight oats! And I’m so glad I did because this has to be one of the really healthy breakfast options. If you ever run out of healthy breakfast ideas – consider this one! Not only is it one of the easy and healthy recipes to conjure up for lazy people like me but it is also so flavorful!

However, it is entirely up to you to experiment with your strawberry overnight oats or any overnight oats variation you decide to come up with. I hope you try it out for yourself and find out real soon.

Ingredients

½ cup old fashioned rolled oats (I used Quaker Oats)

2-3 strawberries, use slightly overripe if possible

2/3 cup of milk

2 tablespoons of plain yogurt (dahi)

1 teaspoon of chia seeds

Sweetener of your choice – honey or 2 tablets of sugarfree (I used and prefer sugarfree)

(Optional) A pinch of ground cinnamon or grated nutmeg

(Optional) For garnishing – 1-2 strawberries, sliced

 

Method

  1. In a bowl, crush the strawberries using a fork.
  2. Add the yogurt, oats, cinnamon powder, chia seeds, milk, and the sweetener.
  3. Mix all the ingredients till they are well combined.
  4. Transfer to an air tight container or a jar and refrigerate overnight.
  5. Stir everything once again right before serving.
  6. Garnish with sliced strawberries. Enjoy!

    1. As we are adding curd and milk, over time the milk will also ferment to curd right? Then why not only add curd?
    2. What is the requirement for an airtight container?

      Hey!
      1 – First, of all – consistency and nutrition. And no, it won’t ferment into yogurt overnight – fermentation takes place under specific conditions only; and in the case of milk turning into yogurt – it requires elevated temperatures to activate the bacteria responsible for the fermentation. 🙂
      2 – Airtight container would prevent any of the fridge ‘odours’ to permeate the flavours and prevent spillage or contamination of any sorts. You can also simply cover the dish with a lid or a larger sized plate. As long as it stays covered.
      Thanks for the questions!
