No-Cook Refrigerator Oatmeal with Strawberries and Honey

Posted on | April 25, 2012 | 7 Comments

I am in love the no-cook refrigerator oatmeal. I just love the idea of a no-fuss, healthy, and absolutely delicious breakfast. It says a lot if I get excited about breakfast. I eat it because I know I should but I just don’t like to eat food in the morning. So I try to make healthy and tasty breakfasts that get me excited like smoothies with oats. This oatmeal definitely falls into this category of exciting breakfast. First, I tried the Blueberry Maple Refrigerator Oatmeal. I made it several times already either as a breakfast, breakfast to go or a treat for lunch. Prepare it the night before, and you’re all set in the morning.

The strawberry season has started, and so I thought I try this oatmeal with strawberries and honey this time. Once again, it turned out delicious. The chia seeds make this oatmeal kind of pudding-like. They are also quite healthy. Overall, I love the idea of this no-cook oatmeal…  so tasty… and healthy… and easy…


for  one jar (size: 1 cup)

  • 1/4 cup uncooked old-fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 tsp Chia seeds
  • 1-2 tsp honey
  • 1/4 cup strawberries, cut into pieces (or more)


Rinse a one-cup jar. Add the oats, milk, Greek yogurt, chia seeds, and the honey. Close the jar with the lid, and give it a good shake so the ingredients combine. You might have to stir in the honey with a spoon.

Then add the strawberries and slightly stir the mix. Close the jar again, and place it in the refrigerator overnight or up to two days. Eat chilled.

Guten Appetit!!!

    My kids will definitely prefer this one over blueberries! =) It’s amazing there are so many ways to eat strawberries. I love your styling here by the way. The trunk/suitcase and the ribbon design is really cute!!

    @ Jen: The valley has strawberry season. We live in higher elevations and still had snow last weekend. BUT I was all excited about my chives as well… :-) Hope you’ll get some strawberries soon, too…

    @ Bridget: I haven’t thought of that yet since it’s still quite cold here in the mountains but this really would be a great treat on a hot day, no cooking… Thanks for your comment!

    @ Nami: I am always amazed, too about all these recipes and ways to eat strawberries… hurray for strawberries. I hope your kids will enjoy it. And thank you, you made my day!!!

    Made this last night for my fiance and I to eat this morning. Delicious! He was very skeptical, both of the fact it’s eaten cold and of the chia seeds, and he said it was great and I should make it again. Thanks for the easy breakfast!

    I had to switch some ingredients to work with my diet so I used 1% milk and fat free Greek Yogurt, and it turned our great. Thank you for the idea so I can have something other then eggs and veg every morning.
