Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk any milk will work
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt preferably 2% or whole milk for creamier oats
  • ¼ cup vanilla protein powder
  • 3/4 cup sliced strawberries plus 1-2 strawberries for garnish
  • Optional extra milk to top

Instructions

  • Place ½ cup oats, 1 Tbsp chia seeds, and 2 Tbsp protein powder in a jar or seal-able container. Add ½ cup almond milk and ¼ cup of Greek yogurt. Stir well (I find a butter knife works best). Repeat with remaining jar/container.
  • If not layering oats: once your oats are stirred, place ¾ cup of strawberries in blender and puree. Place ½ of pureed strawberries in one of the jars and stir to combine. Repeat with remaining jar. Option to dice 1-2 additional strawberries to sprinkle on top. Store in fridge overnight or up to 3-4 days. Option to stir in extra milk when you go to eat your oats if you like a thinner consistency.
  • To layer your oats: Refrigerate oats for at least 3 hours or overnight to thicken. Once thickened, remove oats from fridge and pour 2/3 of the jar into a bowl. Place 3/4 cup of strawberries and puree in blender. Evenly alternate layers of strawberry puree and overnight oats mixture for both jars. Place diced strawberries on top. Option to eat now or place back in fridge and eat within 3-4 days. Feel free to stir in extra milk when you go to eat your oats if you like a thinner consistency.
