Get Creative with Overnight Oats
My daughter will eat these oats every. single. morning. But I don't mind because--
- she makes them herself.
- they are healthy.
- she can eat them on the go. (Though I would prefer she doesn't eat them while driving...)
- they are inexpensive to make with ingredients we always have on hand.
Below is the short and easy list of what you will need to make this recipe:
- Old Fashioned Oats--these provide the best texture.
- Milk--I use cow milk, but feel free to use the milk that makes your tummy happy
- Cheesecake Instant Pudding Mix--Other flavors can be used to create a variety, but the cheesecake flavor hits its mark in this one.
- Strawberries--fresh or frozen are great here.
- We prefer to add fresh strawberries right before eating for the freshest experience.
- If you prefer hot oatmeal (or on cold and frosty mornings), microwave for 30 seconds to a minute until your desired temperature is achieved.
In a wide-mouth canning jar combine the old-fashioned oats, cheesecake pudding mix, and milk. Stir well to combine. If using frozen strawberries, go ahead and put them in now.
Put a lid on the jar and refrigerate overnight or at least 6 hours.
When ready to eat, just cut up fresh strawberries, stir in, and eat.
Container for Overnight Oats
Use any kind of soft fruit that you enjoy in place of the strawberries--blueberry, blackberry, peaches, cooked apple, etc.
I have other iterations of overnight oats that use chocolate and vanilla pudding mixes. Check them out for some variety.
Oats Substitutions--Old-fashioned oats give a great texture to this breakfast without breaking down too much like quick oats do. Uncooked steel-cut oats, conversely, wouldn't get soft enough for me.
Milk Substitutions--I use cow milk at my house, but alternative milk would certainly work just fine here. So go on, use your oat milk, soy milk, coconut milk, goat milk, or almond milk for Strawberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats.
Sugar-Free Pudding Mix--Look for sugar-free pudding mixes to make this recipe lower in calories.
Frozen Fruit in Overnight Oats
Frozen fruits work nicely in overnight oats of any flavor. They release their juices and create a more flavor throughout. Plus, they thaw out overnight in the fridge.
Try some different techniques and see what you like. That's kind of the fun of overnight oats--mixing it up!
Keep overnight oats in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 3-5 days.
