This Strawberry and Cream Overnight Oats recipe is just what you want to start your day with! You all have been loving our oat recipes and I think this one will be no exception: It’s slightly sweet, full of fiber and bursting with flavor. We love to use freeze dried strawberries because their flavor is concentrated and they last longer than fresh strawberries for make-ahead breakfasts. This oatmeal tastes so creamy without ever adding any dairy at all! Plus, it takes 5 minutes to throw together!
