So easy to make and super healthy, these Strawberry Shortcake Overnight Oats honestly taste like strawberry ice cream and are sure to be a hit with the kids! If you are a regular reader on my blog then you know I am possibly the biggest overnight oats fan out there! I am forever concocting new flavours for this simple and delicious breakfast but I have to refrain myself from posting them all here as I don’t want to bore everyone with oats!

So far I’ve shared this Cocoa Banana Overnight Oats recipe and also a recipe for Orange, Coconut & Vanilla Overnight Oats. Now that the sun has finally come out I wanted to create a more summery oats recipe as so the Strawberry Shortcake version was born!

First up a little confession; this recipe doesn’t actually contain any shortcake. But honestly you will not miss it because these oats taste exactly like strawberry shortcake ice cream. It’s incredible!

But unlike ice cream, this is a really fantastic well balanced breakfast to feed the whole family. It contains a good amount of fat and protein to fill everyone up  (go for full fat greek yogurt for the most protein and fat) and the slow-releasing carbs will keep you full until lunchtime.

You can use fresh or frozen strawberries for this recipe, depending on when they are in season where you live. Frozen strawberries are usually a little cheaper and also when you dunk them into hot water to defrost them, they become quite mushy, which means they soak into the oats a lot easier.

    I really enjoy your recipes. Thank you for sharing.

    Do you have an option to stop the videos on your page from trying to load and play all at once? It really makes reading your blog difficult. I don’t know how many times Chrome has asked whether I wanted to wait or kill the page.

    Just made a batch. I can’t wait to try in the morning. I have never had oatmeal, ever. I did use almond milk and it should make it even better with that vanilla taste.

    I wonder how this would taste using low fat Greek yogurt and maybe soy or almond milk?
    I am trying to be on a low fat and as little of sugar as possible diet.
    Thanks for all the great recipes.
    I never realized that so many people liked overnight oats. I thought it was just something I discovered on my own while playing in the kitchen. I love finding all these amazing recipes! I always had the same boring kind every day!

      I love overnight oats! I actually never had really heard of it before buying this package of Muesli from Trader Joes in the U.S. On the side of the package it gave directions on how to make them cold. Instead of eating them hot like I imagine most people do.
      After having the Muesli. I was hooked. I’m so happy to see that there are actually lots of recipes out there for the cold oats.
      My question Ashly, I love steel cut oats. They are Sooooo good for you. I’ve never tried them for overnight oats. I just assumed they would never get soft enough. How long do you soak yours for? And do you have any recipes you can share with me?
      Thanks!

        I have only used rolled oats in my overnight oats recipes. Steel cut oats just aren’t as readily available in the UK so I don’t know how long they would need to soak for.

    I love overnight oats. I have just added chopped strawberries as a topping before, but I like the idea of putting strawberries in them, and the jam! I will definitely be tying this #tastytuesday

    You can never bore me with oats- I’ve just switched to almond milk and I’m really looking forward to trying this with my new milk. Hmmm I don’t sound very cool do I!!
