I remember the first time I ever had real strawberries and cream with my mom at afternoon tea at the Plaza Hotel in NYC. I felt so fancy there dipping my strawberries in the cream and it sure was tasty. After going vegan I’ve been making strawberries and whipped coconut cream (which is just as good as I remember from my Plaza days) but I felt kind of naughty having just that for breakfast. So I thought I’d make something fun yet healthy based on my plaza experience – my Strawberries and Cream Overnight Oats.

Strawberries and Cream Overnight Oats

When I first was thinking about how to make these oats, I couldn’t decide whether to use my whipped cream as the creamy layer or not. I thought people might not want to whip up some coconut cream early in the morning. While I recommend making it if possible (because it is so tasty), I found that vanilla vegan yogurt is a nice substitute.

Although not mandatory, I also really recommend adding my strawberry chia jam to the oats because it really brings it to another strawberry-ness level. You can always make the jam ahead of time because it lasts for a while in the fridge.

In the recipe below I explain how to layer the ingredients to make a parfait but if you’re running short on time, you can add the strawberries and the yogurt with the oats the night before and it will be ready to eat without any hassle in the morning in the morning!

FYI, in the pictures,  the middle layer is coconut cream and the top layer is vanilla yogurt – yum!
