Strawberry almond overnight oats are a lovely breakfast to wake up to, combining oats and oat milk with fresh fruit. You can also combine strawberries with other fresh fruit, as shown, including apples, bananas, pears, peaches, or whatever fresh fruit you’ve got on hand.
This recipe was contributed by Kim Lutz, from The Oat Milk Cookbook. Kim writes, “Fresh, juicy strawberries give these overnight oats a lovely pink tint. If the fresh strawberries you’re using aren’t quite sweet enough for your taste, add a sprinkle of sugar or mix in a little agave nectar. If you are lucky enough to have strawberries that are in season, you probably won’t need any extra sweetener.”
The Oat Milk Cookbook shows you how to easily make versatile, economical oat milk at home, or, of course, you can use prepared oat milk to use in these and your own recipes as well.
A nice thing about oats is that they’re easier on the environment and require less water to grow than tree nuts. Plus, the neutral flavor and creamy consistency of oat milk goes with just about any kind of preparation, as this book demonstrates with its wide array of easy, tasty plant-based recipes.
