Overnight Strawberry Oats Recipe

I went to Target last weekend with my boyfriend and told him I wanted to buy mason jars to go with my new Vitamix blender.  I want to be able to bring smoothies to work to drink for breakfast or to have around after a workout.  However the jars I wanted are only sold in packages of 12.

David: “We really need 12?”

Me: “Yes!” with a huge smile on my face.

Wanting to make use of my new mason jars, I decided to experiment and make overnight oats. When I went to the grocery store to buy my main ingredients, I saw the delicious strawberries on display.  Right then I knew I had to make something with these yummy berries so I quickly searched the Internet and found a recipe from Buzzfeed’s overnight strawberry and oats recipes.  I also added the vanilla and cinnamon since I love these two combined flavors.

½ cup of rolled oats

½ cup almond milk or coconut milk

½ cup low fat greek yogurt

1-2 tablespoons of honey (if you prefer sweeter go with 3 – my boyfriend loves sweet)

1 tablespoon of chia seeds

1 teaspoon of vanilla

Dash of cinnamon

4 strawberries sliced

Combine all ingredients in a jar, mix, and store in a sealed container overnight.  Delicious way to start out any work day. Bon appetit!
