Now that March is here, it feels like spring is just around the corner!
Spring in Texas can be kind of crazy ... 70 degrees one day and 40 the next. But I'm trying to embrace it, because I know that it only going to get hotter (and hotter).
Of course, one of the best things about spring is all the fresh seasonal produced! A bowl of sweet, juicy strawberries just screams spring, and I'm trying to eat them as many ways as possible right now.
This Strawberry Overnight Oats recipe is one of my favorite ways to enjoy fresh berries, and it's the perfect way to start your day this spring (and beyond!).

How to Make Strawberry Overnight Oats
This strawberry oatmeal couldn't be simpler to make.
To get started, you'll need a jar or another container with a lid. I like to use mason jars.
Once you have your jar, simply mix together oats (make sure to use old fashioned rolled oats, not instant or quick oats), milk, maple syrup, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Then, refrigerate the oats overnight.
As the oats sit overnight, they are going to absorb the milk and get super creamy. Yum!
In the morning, top your refrigerator oatmeal with a layer of vanilla yogurt and fresh sliced strawberries.
If you know you'll be in a rush in the morning, feel free to add the yogurt and strawberries at night instead. That way you can just grab the jar and go.
I've written this recipe for one serving, but it's super easy to double, triple, etc. Usually, I'll make a few jars of this overnight oats with strawberries at once, then breakfast is set for the week.
Give these Strawberry Overnight Oats a try! You'll love having a fresh, healthy, and delicious breakfast that's ready to eat when you wake up!
