Is it your dream to eat strawberries and cream everyday? Well, that dream can become a reality with these Strawberries and Cream Overnight Oats!
Don’t let these adorable jars jars fool you, they pack a nutritional punch into your morning! They’re loaded with plant based protein, fiber, and even *gasp* a vegetable! With these in your fridge, you’ll be able to enjoy the delicious combo of strawberries and cream while still being able to take on your busy day.
Now, you may be asking: “how can you achieve such a creamy texture with no dairy?”. Even if you’re not asking that, I’m going to tell you anyway. From tofu! Silken tofu to be exact. Now before you turn your nose up at me like you do when you see a strawberry covered in a furry coat at the back of the fridge, hear me out. Silken tofu is bland on its own, meaning you can’t taste it, especially when it’s blended until it’s as smooth as (vegan) butter. It’s also been used in Asian desserts for decades, so adding it to sweet dishes is not new.Plus, it’s loaded with protein, which helps to keep you feeling full and satisfied.
Before serving, I like to add a dollop of Greek yogurt for an extra layer of creaminess and protein hit. If you’re vegan, feel free to use your favorite plant based yogurt. Toss on some freshly sliced strawberries and dive in!
