Strawberry Overnight Oats taste like strawberry shortcake, but are nutritious with fresh strawberries and oats! They’re easy to make, perfect for meal prep, and great for grabbing on-the-go for breakfast or dessert.

Strawberry Overnight Oatmeal

People who know me know are always shocked to hear that I went through a hoarding phase as a kid. It’s true though!

I used to have what I called “collections” of basically random junk, including everything from rocks, to seashells, to buttons, to scruffy Barbies that were way past their prime. I rarely wanted to get rid of anything, no matter how ugly or nonfunctional it was.

Best Strawberry Overnight Oats

One day I had it with my hoarding ways and literally threw out bags of junk. The sad part is, I actually threw out some pretty cool stuff too. (My Strawberry Shortcake and Blueberry Muffin dolls were things I never should have parted with!)

Since then I’ve prided myself on the fact that my hoarding days are in the past.

Strawberries and Cream Overnight Oats

At least until I look at the shelves of props in my studio and ask myself if I really need 150 different plates.

Or until I look in the fridge and see four flavors of mustard, five kinds of cheese, three types of berries, and two varieties of lettuce.

But at least that’s functional hoarding, right? (Or that’s what I tell myself, lol.)

Fresh Strawberries

The other day I saw a quart of the prettiest strawberries in my fridge. (Yup, peeking through behind the different kinds of cheese and lettuce!) I knew I wanted to do something a little different with them.

It’s funny how a recipe can be so simple and basic, but if you save it for rare occasions it just feels special. Overnight oats is one of those things for me.

Strawberry Overnight Oats Recipe with Description

Strawberry Overnight Oats Recipe

I’m a good meal planner when it comes to lunch and dinner, but not so much regarding breakfast. I never think to mix up overnight oats the night before! Because of that, for me this Strawberry Overnight Oats recipe truly feels special.

Here strawberries and cream are taken to the next level with minimal effort. Oats, coconut “whipped cream”, and strawberry chia jam are layered together for a treat that’s as pretty as it is delicious.

Strawberry Overnight Oats Parfaits

These little parfaits are easy to whip up, and making them in mason jars means they’re easy to grab on-the-go. They work for breakfast or dessert, and they’re the perfect thing to bring along on a picnic, or outdoor excursion. 

Pro Tip: You can use Greek yogurt instead of the coconut “whipped cream” if you prefer.

  • Add 1 pouch of oatmeal and 1/4 cup milk to each of 2 pint-sized mason jars. Shake each to combine well.
  • Open the can of coconut milk from the bottom and drain off the thinner, liquid-y coconut milk (you can reserve it for use in something else, such as a smoothie, if you want). Transfer 1/3 cup of the thick, waxy-looking portion to a medium bowl, and whip it with a handheld electric beater until light and fluffy.
  • Add 1 cup chopped strawberries, honey, vanilla, and salt to a food processor or blender and pulse a couple until it forms a sauce (a few lumps are fine).
  • Measure out 1 tablespoon of the strawberry sauce and add it into the whipped coconut milk; beat until combined.
  • Stir the chia seeds into the strawberry sauce and let it sit for 3 minutes to thicken slightly.
  • Pour half of the whipped coconut milk into each of the mason jars on top of the oat mixture. Top each with half of the strawberry sauce. Divide the remaining 1/2 cup chopped strawberries and 1 tablespoon coconut flakes on top of each.
  • Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.


  • Storage: Store covered in the fridge for up to 5 days.

  1. Kiran @ says:

    Yummy!! Love overnight oat parfaits and you know how much I love coconut! Way too much :D

  2. Boy, yo had me with that sweet strawberry an coconut cream whip! This looks like it could double as a killer dessert, too.
    Now that fridge hoarding sounds perfectly natural to me as does the prop collection, but I guess I’m a little biased there. ;)

  3. The Food Hunter says:

    Overnight oats are so easy to do. this sounds wonderful

  4. At least you’ve narrowed hoarding to props and ingredients. ? My husband teases me about the number of salt varieties I have – kosher, Maldon (smoked and plain), table, Himalayan pink, etc. etc.

    It’s so fun to make these parfaits and using coconut cream in these would have me leaping out of bed in the morning!

  5. That looks delicious! A wonderful way to start the day.



  6. I am a big fan of overnight oats, but I prefer to make them where you just put everything into the jar, let it sit overnight, and then stir and eat in the morning. That’s the lazy person in me – actually I just don’t have a lot of energy for making breakfast in the morning. I like your combination of flavors, but will look for a different way to put them together that is easier for me (which means it most likely won’t be a parfait).
