Ingredients needed

This strawberry cheesecake overnight oats recipe couldn’t be easier to make with such delicious, simple ingredients. Here’s everything you’ll need to make them:

  • Yogurt: The taste of vanilla yogurt in this recipe really complements the cream cheese and strawberry flavors. However, you can use plain yogurt or for a boost of protein, mix in Greek yogurt.
  • Cream cheese: Just 4 ounces of cream cheese makes this taste just like cheesecake.
  • Milk: Add in any milk variety you like best.
  • Sweetener: To perfectly sweeten the oats, we’re using honey. You can substitute with maple syrup or stevia if preferred.
  • Vanilla extract: To bring out the sweetness.
  • Old-fashioned rolled oats: We recommend rolled oats for that perfect chewy texture. You can use quick oats, but they will have a softer, mushier consistency. Steel-cut oats will not work for this recipe, as they will not soften to the right texture.
  • Fresh strawberries: We recommend using fresh, not frozen strawberries, for best results.
  • Strawberry preserve: For extra strawberry flavor.

Expert Tips

  • You can easily customize overnight oats to make them your own! Instead of using strawberries, other fruits work great too! Try another berry, cherries, or peaches with that same flavor of preserves or jam.
  • Prefer warm oatmeal? Feel free to serve these overnight oats warmed up, too! Heat them in the microwave for 30 seconds to a minute or two, depending on how warm you’d like them. Once heated, stir and add a bit more milk, as needed.
  • This strawberry overnight oats recipe is naturally gluten-free, however, oats can get cross-contaminated in factories. To ensure your oats are gluten-free, be sure the package is labeled certified gluten-free.
  • To keep this recipe vegan, be sure to use dairy-free milk and yogurt. Also, be sure to use maple syrup or another sweetener rather than honey.

Frequently asked questions

Is overnight-soaked oats healthy?

Yes! This recipe is filled with wholesome, nutritious ingredients. The oats contain a type of fiber that restores healthy gut bacteria. They also contain antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Learn more about the health benefits of oats here. Yogurt and strawberries add a variety of other vitamins, minerals, and health benefits.

Why do overnight oats have to sit overnight?

Letting the oats soak in the milk and yogurt for at least 2 hours or overnight allows the liquid ingredients to fully hydrate and soften the oatmeal. We recommend waiting at least 2 hours, but 5 hours overnight will result in the best texture.

What is the best liquid for overnight oats?

We always add milk (any variety) to our overnight oats recipes. Adding a liquid like water is not going to give the oats that delicious creaminess that we want.

Storage recommendations

Keep overnight oats stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container or in mason jars for up to 4 to 5 days. When you’re ready to enjoy, give the mixture a good stir and add an extra splash of milk, if you’d like.
