Strawberry and Cream Overnight Oats

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!

Where can I find freeze dried fruit?

Freeze dried fruit is now commonly found in most grocery stores. Make sure to read the label to check that the only ingredient listed is the actual fruit and does not include any additives. We love the 365 brand of them at Whole Foods.
