  • Large Bowl
  • Measuring Cups (Dry and Liquid)
  • Spatula
  • Food Processor


  • 8 cups Old-Fashioned Oats
  • 8 cups Milk of your choice
  • 4 cups sliced strawberries
  • 4 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed optional


  • Add your strawberries and sugar to your blender or food processor and puree into smoothie consistency. If using fresh, be sure to hull and rinse them; if using frozen, thaw slightly in the microwave or by letting them sit out. Let the puree rest while you prepare the oats.
  • Add oats and milk to the large bowl and stir until all the oats are wet. If you are adding flaxseed, add it now.
  • Use the spatula to add your strawberry puree into the bowl of oats. Add vanilla and salt; stir well.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight. Enjoy!


  • If using frozen strawberries, using 8 cups of milk will make your oatmeal very runny. Instead, you can reduce milk to 6 cups for a thicker oatmeal, or to 7 cups for an average consistency oatmeal. 
  • Keep in mind that if using flaxseed, it will soak up extra liquid and make your oatmeal a tad thicker. 
  • This oatmeal works with all types of milk. If using dairy-free milk, I find the creamiest results with hemp milk or flax milk. You can also use almond or rice milk, but will get an overall thinner consistency as a result. 
  • If you are using whole strawberries instead of sliced strawberries, you will want to add an extra cup of berries to your oatmeal. 
  • If you would like to use less sugar, you can cut back to 1/2 cup with no problems.
