Calling all breakfast lovers and dessert enthusiasts! This recipe combines the best of both worlds, offering a guilt-free indulgence disguised as a healthy breakfast: Strawberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats!

Imagine waking up to a jar filled with creamy cheesecake-flavored oats studded with fresh strawberries. Sounds like a dream, right? Well, it can be your reality with this incredibly easy and delicious recipe.

Ingredients:

For the Base:

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (not quick oats)
  • 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened milk of your choice (almond, soy, coconut, etc.)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds or ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 0-2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup (optional)


For the Strawberry Cheesecake Layer:

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh strawberries
  • 3 tablespoons softened cream cheese
  • Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon

Instructions:

  1. Prep Time is Minimal: In a medium bowl, whisk together the rolled oats, Greek yogurt, milk, chia seeds, vanilla extract, salt, and sweetener (if using). This forms the base of your delicious overnight oats.
  2. Create the Creamy Cheesecake Filling: In a separate bowl, mash the chopped strawberries with a fork. Add the softened cream cheese, lemon zest, and lemon juice to the mashed strawberries. Mix everything together until well combined. This creamy mixture will transform your oats into a delightful cheesecake dream.
  3. Layer & Chill for Perfection: Divide the oat mixture evenly between two jars or containers. Top each jar with half of the strawberry cheesecake layer. Seal the jars tightly and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, ideally overnight. The magic happens during this time as the oats soften and absorb the flavors, creating a delightful textural experience.
  4. Wake Up to Breakfast Bliss: In the morning, grab your jar of chilled Strawberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats and enjoy! The creamy texture, combined with the sweetness of the strawberries and the subtle tang of the cheesecake, will leave you wanting more.


Tips for Customization and Twists:

  • Craving a Thicker Consistency? Use less milk or add an extra tablespoon of chia seeds.
  • Sweet Tooth Talking? Feel free to add up to 2 tablespoons of honey or maple syrup to the oat base.
  • Top it Off! Get creative with toppings like chopped nuts, granola, shredded coconut, or even a drizzle of chocolate sauce.
  • Fruity Twist: Substitute the strawberries with other fruits like blueberries, raspberries, or mangoes for a different flavor profile.
  • Vegan Version: Use vegan yogurt, plant-based milk, and vegan cream cheese to make this recipe plant-based friendly.
