Strawberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats Recipe

I have been rotating with several overnight oats recipes lately, and this strawberry cheesecake variation is my favorite.

In this recipe, you get a cheesecake feel to your oats because first, greek yogurt is thick and rich. Second, the cream cheese adds richness and tang and third, the graham cracker crumbs round up the cheesecake flavor with its buttery profile.

The ingredients for the strawberry cheesecake overnight oats.

Some Notes on the Ingredients

  • Oats. You can use rolled oats or quick cooking oats or gluten-free oats according to you needs and preference.
  • Milk. I use soy milk. But you can also use other non-dairy milk like almond, cashew or oat milk. I recommend unsweetened variety. Of course you can always use cow’s milk.
  • Greek Yogurt. I recommend at least 2% fat. This is because we are going after a creamy, and rich flavor. Also, feel free to use vanilla flavored greek yogurt, then reduce (or omit ) the maple syrup.
  • Cream Cheese. The cream cheese must be soft and velvety so it mixes beautifully with the yogurt. I microwave it at low power for 5-7 seconds at a time.
  • Maple Syrup. The amount in the recipe is a guideline and you can choose to add or reduce this according to your sweetness preference. I suggest to keep it on the minimum side. You can always add more in the topping the next morning! You can also use honey.
  • Strawberries. I use frozen. But fresh strawberries are perfect as well.

  5. The next morning, grab and enjoy!

Instructions

  • To soften the cream cheese, either take it out well ahead of time or warm it up in the microwave for 5-7 seconds at a time at medium power until soft. Do not overheat because it can scorch in the microwave.

Notes

  • To meal prep for several days of breakfast, simply double or triple the ingredients and divide among  your jars.
  • You can also swap out the fruit. Try blueberries or raspberries.

  • I do not recommend non-fat yogurt because we are going after a rich, cheesecake flavor.
