Ingredients You’ll Need

Rolled Oats (1/2 cup)

Chia Seeds (1 tbsp)

Unsweetened Almond Milk (1/2 cup)

Plain Greek Yogurt (1/2 cup)

Vanilla Protein Powder (1 tbsp)

Strawberries (1/2 cup)

How to Make Strawberry Protein Overnight Oats

Step 1. Slice strawberries and add them into a blender and puree. It‘s best to use a smaller blender like this here.

If you have one of those larger blenders, make sure to add in a little bit of water. Don‘t add too much because we still want to keep this puree a little thicker.

Step 2. Add oats, chia seeds, almond milk, greek yogurt, and protein powder into a food container.

Step 3. Mix all the ingredients.

Step 4. Cover with strawberry puree and keep in the fridge for 8 hours or overnight.

Step 5. Once the oats are out of the fridge, give them a stir so that the puree beautifully mixes in with the oats.

Why These Overnight Oats are High in Protein

These overnight oats have a whopping 33 grams of protein. That‘s because they‘re packed with ingredients like:

Rolled oats: When you think of oats, you probably don‘t think of protein. But did you know that oats contain more protein than a lot of other grains? Half a cup of dry oats provides 13 grams of protein.

Chia seeds: Chia seeds are the perfect superfood. And for a good reason. For instance, a one-ounce serving provides 4 grams of protein. If you need to stock up on some, you can get some here.

Greek yogurt: When it comes to protein, Greek yogurt is king. It contains almost twice as much protein as regular yogurt. For instance, a 100g serving of Greek yogurt contains 9 grams of protein.

Vanilla Protein Powder: Adding protein powder to your overnight oats boosts the protein content to a whole other level. Just one serving of this vanilla protein powder contains 25 grams of protein.

What Protein Powder to Add to Oats?

To make the overnight oats, I used vanilla protein powder. But if you‘re not a fan of vanilla protein powder, or just want to change it up, you can use other protein powders instead.

For instance, if you want to amp up the taste of fresh strawberries, you can use strawberry protein powder like this.

And if you‘re looking to complement the taste of the strawberries, a chocolate protein powder like this would be a great option.
