Blueberry Strawberry Overnight Oats

I have become obsessed with overnight oats. I love, love, LOVE them!  I made strawberry banana overnight oats with plain fat free Greek yogurt the first time but this time around I decided to experiment. I only had flavored yogurts in the house, so I opted to use those.  I found since the flavored yogurt I use is thicker, ¼ cup oats was just enough along with the fresh fruit. If I added anymore, I think it would’ve been a little too chunky for my liking.  I actually enjoyed this combination so much I recreated it using vanilla Greek yogurt.
Serves 1. 4 Points Plus Values.
          Dannon Light and Fit Greek Blends – Banana Cream (single serve) OR Yoplait  Greek 100 Calories – Vanilla (single serve)
          ¼ cup oats
          1/3 cup fresh blueberries
          3 strawberries, chopped
Add yogurt to a bowl and mix in oatmeal. When blended, add in fruit and mix so fruit is coated.
Cover with a lid or plastic wrap and allow mixture to sit in the refrigerator for a minimum of 6-hours (or overnight).

Strawberry Banana Overnight Oats

I’ve heard and read a lot about overnight oats but had yet to give into the trend. Overnight oats have become quite the thing with so many different variaties available and different techniques to making them. I decided to go with a bit of the basics for my first batch but to jazz it up to my taste buds personal flavor category. Bring on the Strawberry Banana Overnight Oats!

I admit, I gave the mixture a little taste test before putting it into the refrigerator overnight and I was immediately hooked. The mixture was delicious even if it’s raw, crunchy oatmeal form. That only made me incredibly excited for morning to come. At first I laughed, because I was excited for OATMEAL! Whodathunkit? Certainly not I. But I enjoyed this so much I have plans to make it again and I have plans to try out different concoctions depending on what my tastebuds may be wanting that day.

Serves 1. 6 Points Plus Values. (Or 3 points plus values for 1/2)
– 5.3 oz Plain, Fat Free, Greek Yogurt (I used the single serving container by Dannon)
– 1/2 cup Old Fashioned Oats
– 5 strawberries, mashed
– 1/2 medium banana, mashed
– 1 Equal packet
– 1 tbsp Sugar Free Maple Syrup

Mash strawberries and banana in a bowl (that has a matching lid). Stir in equal packet and blend well.

Add in the yogurt and mix, then combine the mixture with half the oatmeal, blending then adding the remainder along with the tablespoon of maple syrup.

Mix until all contents are blended together. Cover with a lid and place in the refrigerator overnight (or a minimum of 6 hours).

The next day remove the lid, stir the contents and enjoy!
