Strawberry overnight oats

Make it easy to feed yourself and the kids a healthy breakfast, no matter how busy you are, with this simple make-ahead recipe.

– Whole milk plain yogurt – Instant oats – Strawberries – Hemp seeds – Unsweetened shredded coconut – Maple syrup or honey: You can sweeten the yogurt mixture to taste as you like.


Stir together the yogurt, oats, vanilla, milk, coconut (if using), hemp seeds (if using), and maple syrup (if using).


Taste the mixture and adjust the optional sweeteners as needed. Puree it smooth for a baby or toddler who prefers a smoother texture.


I like to add the hemp seeds and coconut for added healthy fats, fiber, and flavor, but you can omit them if you don’t happen to have any on hand.


Layer in jars or storage containers with the berries. Let sit overnight and enjoy cold. Store for up to 3 days in an airtight container in the fridge.


I prefer the texture of overnight oats to be smoother, so I use instant oats here. You can use rolled oats, or you can grind rolled oats briefly in a food processor or blender.
