For the Overnight Oats:

  • 250 g (8.8 oz) strawberries See Note 1
  • 2 teaspoon maple syrup
  • ¾ cup (180 ml) milk - I use almond or oat See Note 2
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 cup (80 g) old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds See Note 3

Toppings (optional):

  • Greek yoghurt or coconut yoghurt
  • strawberries - sliced


  • In a small blender, add the strawberries and puree until smooth.
  • Add the strawberry puree to a medium-size bowl. Add the oats, chia seeds, almond milk, vanilla, maple syrup and lemon zest to the strawberries. Mix well to combine.
  • Cover the bowl with clingwrap, or divide the mixture into two glasses or mason jars and cover. Refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight.
  • Serve with toppings of your choice and additional milk if the mixture is too thick.


  1. Strawberries: fresh or frozen will work. If using frozen, allow them to defrost before pureeing. 
  2. Milk: use milk of your choice. I use almond or oat milk. Add more milk when serving if you prefer a thinner texture.
  3. Tablespoon: we use a standard Australian tablespoon which is 20 ml (4 teaspoons).
  4. Toppings: the toppings are optional (and are not included in the nutritional information). Use toppings of your liking - see suggestions above.
