Strawberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats
Overnight oats are amazing and there are so many different ways to enjoy them. These Strawberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats are a big winner in our house! I am a mega cheesecake fan so bringing these two wonderful things together made total sense to me.
One of my other favourite things is pudding for breakfast (see my Cheesecake Breakfast Bars if you don’t believe me!) so this is pretty much my perfect way to start the day.
The wonderful thing about Overnight Oats is how easily they put you in control. If you’ve made these Strawberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats the night before and have it ready to go in the morning you’re starting the day on a positive note.
You’re not flustered and hungry in the morning and tempted to nip into your local cafe to get a bacon roll, you’re in control of your meals and it’s a great feeling. Add into the mix that they taste great, get loads of delicious speed fruit into your day and are generally one of the most filling things you can start the day with and you’ll understand why they’ve become such a huge craze!
You’ve only got to look on Instagram to see some beautiful examples of this wonderful breakfast…
I like to keep my Overnight Oats quite simple, and often just do the standard yogurt, oats and a bit of fruit, but when the inspiration struck for my Strawberry Cheesecake ones I just had to make them.
These Strawberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats are just 3 syns on Slimming World plus your Healthy Extra B choice, which makes them perfect to curb your sweet tooth and give you a healthy and nutritious start to the day!
As I’ve already mentioned, one of the brilliant things about overnight oats is how filling they are. I usually need a snack by about 10:30am (after eating breakfast at 9am) because I’m just a super hungry person all of the time (hence the weight gain…who’d figure right?!?) but if I start the day with overnight oats I find that I’m full until lunchtime.
As someone who is particularly susceptible to naughty snack food this is a big plus and I can put a lot of ‘on plan’ days on my Slimming World journey down to starting my day with a tasty pot of overnight oats!
I do also find that they take longer to eat as I’m not wolfing them down like I would cereal so that does actually make them more filling (you should never finish a meal in under 15 minutes as your brain won’t have time to register that it’s full!) and so there are proper benefits to eating them this way. You can either use a jam jar to make these Strawberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats or if you want to grab some Kilner Jars they’re really cheap on Amazon. I picked up a box of 8 for about £10!
