Classic overnight oats (from Canada's food guide)

A fantastic grab-and-go breakfast that is easy and incredibly versatile.


Prep time: 8 min

Cook time: 0 min

Servings: 1

Vegetarian


Ingredients

  • 85 mL (1⁄3 cup) lower fat plain yogurt

  • 85 mL (1⁄3 cup) large flake oats

  • 85 mL (1⁄3 cup) lower fat milk, unsweetened fortified soy beverage or water

  • 125 mL (1⁄2 cup) frozen strawberries

  • 2 mL (1⁄2 tsp) cinnamon


Directions

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together all ingredients (except strawberries). Spoon into a jar or container with a tight-fitting lid.

  2. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, but preferably overnight before eating. Top with strawberries when ready to serve.

Tips

  • Eat overnight oats cold or warm. If you prefer them warm, heat up in the microwave before eating.

  • Stir in more milk, unsweetened fortified soy plant-based beverage or water before eating if you prefer a looser consistency.

  • Switch it up! Use your favorite seasonal fruit instead of frozen strawberries. In the summer, try peaches, plums, or blueberries.

  • Little chefs can help mix the ingredients.
