Oats – Overnight oats are best when made using rolled oats . Though instant oats tastes good too , it becomes too soggy . Whereas steel cut oats are not recommended as it becomes too hard to digest.
Yogurt – I use plain , homemade yogurt to soak the oats . You can use either full fat yogurt or skim yogurt in this recipe. Also plain greek yogurt , works fine here. For vegan version , replace dairy yogurt with any plant-based yogurt.
Milk – I use whole milk to soak the oats as it makes the dish creamy and rich. You can definitely use skim milk to make it low calories.
For vegan version , replace dairy milk with any plant-based milk like coconut milk , almond milk or oat milk.
Strawberries – Choose any sweet , ripe and juicy strawberries to make this overnight oats. You can either use fresh or frozen strawberries to make this tasty overnght oats recipe.
Banana- Robusta Banana works best here , along with adding creaminess it adds flavours that get along with strawberries . You can add small banana (Indian Elachi Banan variety ) too in this recipe .
Others – You will also need chia seeds, honey, and vanilla extract. Vegan's can replace honey with maple syrup or agave nectar.
Toppings - I add slivered almonds with fresh strawberries and banana . Feel free to add any seeds and nuts of your choice to make your super healthy breakfast bowl.
To make it more healthy , you can add some extra protein to your strawberry oats , stir in a scoop of protein powder just before serving and top it with your favourite toppings.
