Strawberries and Cream yOATgurt

All right, then. I posted about these in my WIAW post, but it just didn't seem the appropriate place to put a recipe, you know?

So let's get on with it :) Besides, I like posting pictures of yummy food, despite lacking photography skills on my part. But you do what you can... If it tastes good, I think I'm satisfied.

These are super creamy and they really warm you from inside out. Especially when you add some delicious peanut butter. Because that improves everything. I pity those with nut allergies.

CREAMY STRAWBERRY yOATgurt (easily doubled)

1/4 cup rolled oats
1 Tablespoon Chia Seeds (optional)
1/2 cup almond milk+ 1/2 cup water (or some combo of the two)
2 Tablespoons Greek Yogurt (plain, vanilla, or strawberry)
1 cup frozen strawberries, partially thawed
Sweetener (optional)

Toppings (optional)
Peanut Butter
 Kashi GoLean Crunch or Granola
Slivered Almonds
White Chocolate Chips

  1. Combine liquid, oats, and chia seeds on stovetop in medium size pot. Heat on high until it begins to boil, and then stir constantly for 2 minutes to make sure the oats do not burn.
  2. Reduce heat to medium and let cook until about half liquid is absorbed (about 4 minutes). Stir in yogurt and let cook again until it begins to thicken.
  3. Add your somewhat frozen strawberries and stir. (It turns pink!)
  4. You may cook for a few additional minutes to thicken, but I liked mine runny because it was more like warm yogurt/oatmeal. Sounds weird, but delicious.  
  5. Top with whatever you like, and ENJOY!
