I was sitting here trying to come up with a name for these oats…strawberries & cream, peaches & cream, berries & cream, summer cream…then I realized that sounded too dirty, but I liked the word summer since it’s using summer fruits, so summer dream stuck, and here we gooo…

Melody [@melody.tiu] via Instagram challenged me to make strawberry flavored goodies since she’s not a chocolate fan [gasp!!]. So I sat in my kitchen contemplating recipes, and overnight oats were on my list, because I’m newly obsessed with them. Limited ingredients + inexpensive + virtually no prep + win, win, WIN.

Hope you enjoy these as much as I did, as they’re perfect to kick off a warm summer morning, without the guilt.
