Overnight oats make a great breakfast to start your day, get those engines roaring and fuelling you up for the blast of a day ahead. I made my first ever jar of overnight oats recently, taking on strawberries for the virgin attempt with this recipe right here. The ingredients were a friendly bunch, but I didn’t follow the list entirely because the supermarket was out of a couple of items like almond milk and greek yogurt — thankfully easily substitutable. The result tasted really wholesome and healthy with sweet hints from that bit of honey and those gorgeous strawberries.

1/2 cup non-fat milk
1/2 cup nonfat yogurt
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon honey
4 large strawberries, cored and thinly sliced
Mix all the ingredients up in a mason jar (or any air-tight container) and store it in the fridge for at least 6 and up to 24 hours.
In the morning, toss in some fresh slices of strawberries, grab your spoon and dig in!
