Last week was a game changer for me.

It brought a new breakfast to life in my kitchen: refrigerator oats. An easy no-cook, no-effort, super healthy way to start my day.

And, like my beloved smoothie, refrigerator oats have endless possibilities when it comes to flavor combinations.

Last week, my flavor obsession was peach + honey. This week? It’s the spectacular strawberry.

Truth be told, they are both delightful for very different reasons.

This time, jam is the sweetener of choice. And who can resist melt-in-your mouth sweet strawberries in peak season? It’s so simple it’s divine.

Do your taste buds and your belly a favor: make these purdy little oats for the rest of the week.

And then post pictures on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter for me to ooh and ahhh over. While you’re at it, make sure to tag me so I see it!

  1. Reply I made the mistake of trying "strawberry lemonade" refrigerator oats before, and the acid from the lemon turned the strawberries sour and almost rotten. Until now, I thought that strawberries just couldn't handle being cut/soaked overnight, but now I see it was just the lemon juice! Maybe I'll give them another chance. :)
    1. Reply I was totally going to try strawberry lemonade next!!! Thank you for the heads up. Maybe you just have to add the strawberries in the morning?
  2. Reply how many portions will this make? one?
    1. Reply also how long do they stay in the refrigerator
