Strawberry and Almond Overnight Oats

Do you love oatmeal, but don’t feel like eating hot cereal during the warm summer months? Overnight oats are for you!

They’re made by combining equal parts yogurt, milk, and rolled oats. This mixture is refrigerated overnight, allowing the oats to absorb the liquid and become soft and chewy.

In the morning, you can top your oats with fruit, nuts, jam, applesauce, or whatever else sounds good to you. In this recipe, the oats are flavored with vanilla and almond extract and topped with strawberries and almonds. Use it as your starting point for coming up with your own creative combinations.
