Strawberries and Cream Overnight Oatmeal

I hope the surge of overnight oat recipes is appreciated. I've been shaking them up quite frequently this month! I believe they are perfect for this time of year; many mornings in New Jersey are hot and muggy, and steaming oatmeal doesn't always appeal to me then. In those times, I really crave a refreshing, cool, creamy oatmeal.


You can really tinker with this recipe. Add chocolate chips, use dried strawberries, slice in a banana, etc. It's an incredibly basic recipe that you could adapt to your liking. You could even swap in real cream, if your lifestyle allows it. I'll stick to my almond milk. :)
This recipe will be my one and only post until next weekend. I'm chaperoning a long field trip and will be "out of office" for the week! Have a great long weekend and a beautiful week. If you're on the east coast, enjoy the weather! It's gonna get HOT!

    1. I've used both, and I don't have a preference. :)
