Strawberry Banana Overnight Oats, one of the best overnight oats recipes you will ever try.
I love how my day ends every single day.
A text from my peanutbutter♥ of how much he loves me…. a text sent just before he goes in to work. I receive this text at home while bonding with my daughter over a movie (or a series, or Ru Paul), a pair of spoons, and that almost-empty jar of cookie butter. After the movie or when we are already sleepy, we brush our teeth and get ready for bed. Again, I receive another reminder of love, from my daughter this time… and with a goodnight kiss to boot! She says “good night mommy, I love you… sweet dreams” then she turns to my bump and says “good night baby, I love you“.
That’s all I need to send me to a sweet slumber.
It’s ironic that I’m writing about what happens before bedtime when the food I’m sharing with you is actually breakfast food. So what does all of this have to do with Strawberry Banana Overnight Oats?
Nothing really except that this overnight oats is sweet, creamy, fruity, and healthy and somehow it reminds me of that moment…….that fleeting feeling of being so loved just before I close my eyes at night.
I love having overnight oats for breakfast because it’s so easy to make. You can always make it at night and when you wake up in the morning, it’ll be there waiting for you in the fridge. The best part is you can make it with any flavor you like — all you need are rolled oats and milk … yogurt is optional but it’ll make your overnight oats creamier and it will add some tartness to it.
Since it’s Strawberry season, she’s going to be the star of our overnight oats today… plus bananas, of course. I know, ugly-looking bananas over there, my apologies. Strawberries and bananas just go so well together♥!
Just put everything in a jar….like so…. oats, strawberries, bananas, and yogurt…
..then pour in your fresh milk and some condensed milk for sweetness. Keep in the fridge overnight.
Open the jar and eat the next morning!
Here are a few more Overnight Oats variants I made in the past….
