Directions

Click:

  1. In a small bowl, microwave the strawberries on high for 1 - 2 minutes. Mash the thawed strawberries with a fork, and let sit to cool slightly. Alternatively, the strawberries can be thawed on the stove. Note, if using fresh berries (as pictured), it's best to mash it, and then mix it together with some yogurt to retain the freshness of the berries.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the oats, plant milk, cashew butter, lemon juice, maple syrup, flaxseeds and vanilla extract. If desired, you can add some chopped fresh or frozen strawberries into the oat mixture as well, although optional.
  3. Add the thawed berry mixture to the bottom of a mason jar or airtight container, then add the oat mixture on top of that.
  4. Seal the container, and let it sit overnight in the fridge.
  5. The next morning, top with yogurt and other desired toppings, and enjoy!

Notes

The lemon juice is inspired, it’s what makes this wonderful recipe so cheesecakey! I’ve been thinking about heading plant based for ages but PUL’s lovely ideas and simple ingredients and methods have encouraged me to go for it. We are lucky here in the uk to be able to source all the ingredients quite easily but love the fact you suggest good alternatives for various ingredients. For the last couple of weeks as I’ve discovered your recipes and ideas I’ve looked forward to getting up for an exciting breakfast - and I am definitely not a morning person!! I love Sadia’s subtle, gentle approach and ethos. It’s rare to find every recipe you try from a single individual/ site so utterly delish! PUL team I salute all of you!

PUL Team - April 4, 2021, 2:43 a.m.

Aww thank you so much for sharing your kind words, Kate! It means so much. We're so grateful that PUL has been a part of your plant-based journey as well 🥰


Sabrina - March 30, 2021, 7:53 p.m.

OMG - made this in batch for the week and had my first one this morning. It was SO GOOD!! I accidentally added the yogurt to the mix instead of as a topping but it didn't hurt it at all. I'm also not a big eater in the morning so I made 2 recipes but divided it into three 8oz jars, it just barely fit and was the perfect amount!! Definitely a make again!!!!

PUL Team - April 3, 2021, 12:47 a.m.

This is so awesome to hear, Sabrina! Thank you so much for taking the time to share. We're so glad the overnight oats were enjoyed 🥳

Hi Sadia! How are you? I hope you and Robin are doing great because you should be extremely proud of this new website you've just launched: it's honestly incredible and so so beautiful!
Despite me wanting to congratulate with us for this new milestone, I actually had a question regarding this precise recipe of overnight oats: I've been thinking about making this since I saw the video and I finally have strawberries on hand, but I was wondering... if you add lemon to the oat mixture, doesn't the milk (even if an almond one) curdle up? is it something that needs to happen in this specific recipe?

Louise Magnusson🇸🇪 - March 29, 2021, 3:36 p.m.

Hello Ari,
I’m not a food chemist, but I’ve studied biology and chemistry. Adding lemon juice shouldn’t be a problem at all, as plant-based milk doesn’t contain the PROTEINS that curdle up in cow’s milk. Plant-based milk actually contains a very high proportion of water and some oil (to mimic the fatty feeling of regular milk), meaning that lemon juice is soluble with plant-based milk.
What do others think?

Sadia - March 29, 2021, 3:38 p.m.

Hey Ari, thanks so much for your kind words on our new website 😊 and thanks for your supporting comment also Louise! Ari, you're right that lemon added to plant-based milk does cause it to lightly curdle (often how buttermilk is used in plant-based baking recipes), but it's not a concern with the recipe. It only helps to add a lovely citrusy flavour to the oatmeal, and you won't notice any curdling when enjoying it the next day. It's much too mild. I hope this helps for now, and if you'd also prefer not to use lemon, you can definitely leave it out 🍋 🤗 ~ Sadia


Louise Magnusson🇸🇪 - March 29, 2021, 10:10 a.m.

Lovely and very fresh. I was afraid that it would become too sour if I excluded the maple syrup (due to my diabetes). But it actually works very well! I assume it’s due to the natural sweetness of the strawberries and the fats from the nut butter🤔🧐
It’s brilliant to alternate between more fresh/berry and dense/chocolate overnight oats during the week. Thank you, PUL!

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 11:07 p.m.

Thank YOU, Louise! Your kind review and support means so much 🥰


Daphni - March 29, 2021, 9:03 a.m.

Dear PUL team, thank you, you have changed our lives. My partner and I are trying to cut down on meat & dairy products and your recipes have helped us so much! We also are eating much healthier now. And... I never enjoyed cooking, but now I do! I don't even search in other websites anymore, because I know that everything you do is delicious (and we have trying quite a lot of your recipes)! Same goes of course for these over night oats. I have tried the cheesecake so far and the splash of lemon with the cashew fits in brilliantly. The new website is amazing and the additional features are really helpful. Keep on rocking!

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 10:41 p.m.

We appreciate your kind words and support so much, Daphni! Thank you for allowing PUL to be part of you and your partner's journey. We're so grateful you've been enjoying our recipes 🤗


Fariha - March 27, 2021, 3:41 p.m.

This overnight oat recipe is just absolutely delicious!!! I’m 10 yrs old and this took less than 5 mins to prepare this the night before and in the morning I was blown away (tastes just like strawberry cheesecake) ! Your YouTube channel is inspiring me to go vegan and change to a healthier lifestyle.

Much love from Vancouver, Canada; you guys over at the PUL team mean the world to me!^<^
~Your youngest fan, Fariha

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 6:17 p.m.

Aww Fariha, you're the best! We're so grateful to have you in our PUL family 🥰 Sending lots of love to Vancouver!


Lindsay - March 24, 2021, 8:01 p.m.

These were amazing!!!!! Love make-ahead breakfasts. Even my 2-year-old enjoyed this recipe! The new website is fantastic. Love that we can scale up or down the servings and also love the substitution options. Keep up the good work, PUL team!!!

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 5:32 a.m.

Oh, Lindsay, you're too kind! Thank you so much for all the support and wonderful feedback 🥰


Afton - March 22, 2021, 9:20 a.m.

So, I tried the strawberry cheesecake one the other night and oooo Lord it was delicious! Now it’s another morning and I’m craving it but, I didn’t prepare it the night before. What is the minimum amount of time it needs to sit in the fridge and/or can I serve it hot (just adding in the nut butter, berries, and yogurt when serving)?

Louise Magnusson🇸🇪 - March 24, 2021, 6:44 a.m.

Hello,
I haven’t tried this recipe yet, but I’ve read on other blogs that overnight oats require a minimum of 2 hour. To enable the flax or chia seeds to absorb the liquid as well as for flavour development

I’m not so sure if heating this overnight oat will work with the lemon juice 🤔

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 5:52 a.m.

We're so happy you enjoyed it, Afton. Thanks for helping contribute as well, Louise 😃 Indeed, it takes some time for the oats and seeds to absorb the liquid and for the consistency to molden up. I’d suggest at least 3-7 hours in the fridge depending on how cold yours is. If you like the flavour and texture with less time than that though, feel free to enjoy it! Serving it hot may make the flavour more sour, although we can't say for certain. If you experiment, do let us know how it goes 🤗


Aadilah - March 22, 2021, 9:16 a.m.

Absolutely love the new website. May you grow from strength to strength.
Much love all the way from South Africa

PUL Team - March 31, 2021, 2:08 p.m.

Thanks so much Aadilah 🌻


Sylwia - March 22, 2021, 9:16 a.m.

Those Strawberry Cheesecake oats are amazing! It's the first time I added vanilla extract to my oatmeal and I love it; perfect balance with lemon juice and cashew butter ❤️👌

PUL Team - March 31, 2021, 2:08 p.m.

Aw brilliant, so glad it was a hit for you, Sylwia - thank you!

Thanks so much, Amy, that means a lot!


Frida - March 22, 2021, 9:11 a.m.

I really must try this. I have an "apple pie smoothie" I make loads for breakfast (shameless plug for my own recipe, hope that's allowed! http://fridasfriday.eu/the-apple-pie-smoothie-31431308) , so I am very much on board for dessert inspired breakfasts :)

I'll def try this asap! And like Emma said down below, the site looks amazing!

Xx, Frida

PUL Team - March 31, 2021, 5:51 a.m.

We hope you enjoy it, Frida! An apple pie smoothie sounds delicious 🤤


Fatima Sattar - March 22, 2021, 9:01 a.m.
