Breakfast has taken on a whole new meaning now that we’re fully immersed in another semester of e-learning at my house. Without the chaos of school drop-off, I found that I have a little extra time in the morning to get somewhat creative with breakfast.
In the past, my kids started school so early, it seemed like we were always on the run, so breakfasts had to be quick and easy. Don’t get me wrong, I still love a nice, quick and easy recipe, but every once and a while I like to whip up something extra special for my family.
Enter strawberries and cream overnight oats…

How to Make Simple Overnight Oats
Tips for the Best Batch of Overnight Oats
Remember one thing when making overnight oats, consistency is key. If you’re at all sensitive to texture like I am, you know exactly what type of consistency you like your oatmeal to have. Some of us like it a little soupy, some of us like it slightly sticky.
You can play around with overnight oats just like you can with oatmeal. I for instance, like my oatmeal on the soupy side, so I add extra milk to achieve that.
The same principle can be applied to this strawberries and cream overnight oats. Just add extra water until you reach the consistency you desire!
