Just Like Quaker Strawberries & Cream Oatmeal

Y’all, watch out. This recipe will definitely want to make you slap your mama. Mom, stay back!! This morning I was introduced to a Delectable Strawberries and Cream Oatmeal recipe! As soon as it popped up on my Facebook feed yesterday, I ran to the kitchen and whipped it up in no time. Theeeen I had to wait. Overnight. But boy was it worth waiting for!! It’s so creamy and full of protein! Incredibly satisfying along side my hot cup o joe.

Dashing Dish, thank you!! Check out the original wonderful mouth watering recipe here!

Here is my version! I changed it up quite a bit to fit either E OR S.

Strawberries & Cream Overnight Oatmeal ~ S or E
Author: 
Serves: 2
 
Ingredients
  • 1 Cup Sliced Strawberries (I use frozen and thaw them in the microwave, then mash.)
  • ¼ Cup Oats
  • ½ Cup Unsweetened Finely Shredded Coconut Flakes
  • ¼ Cup Swansons Vanilla Whey Protein Powder
  • ½ Cup Greek Yogurt
  • ½ to ¾ Cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 6 Packets Truvia
  • Dash of Salt
Instructions
  1. Mash strawberries.
  2. Dump all ingredients into a bowl and mix well. I like to do the dry ingredients first, then wet, but it doesn't really matter as long as you mix it well.
  3. Cover and refrigerate overnight. If you're dying to eat some and can't wait until tomorrow, wait at least an hour, then the oats should be slightly soft.
  4. Makes about 2-3 cups. You can eat it hot or cold!
  5. If you're not a big fan of a more liquid type of oatmeal texture, try putting less Almond Milk!
Notes
In an "S" setting, you probably should only eat up to ⅛ cup of oats or it will become an "S Helper" if you eat more than ⅛ cup. If you're eating this as an "E" or with an "E" meal, feel free to add more oats, but only use a little bit of coconut or omit since coconut has a lot of fat.

    Did u just recently change this recipe? I made this just a couple days ago and I feel like it’s not the same indgredients.

      Danielle, yes, just a little while ago actually! I am so sorry to say, I was wrong about the 1/4 cup of oats being ok in an “S” setting! I learned today that if you eat over 1/8 cup of oats in an “S” setting it becomes more of an “S Helper” which is pretty close to a “crossover”. However you can eat more oats in an “E” setting and don’t need to worry about measurements for an “E” meal. I changed the recipe just slightly to reflect this so people can choose either an “S” or an “E” for this recipe.

    Jen, this is delicious!! I’ve made it twice now since I saw it on the THM facebook page, lol! Thanks so much for sharing!

    (To make sure I understand — if I make it as written, it’s an “E” if I eat the whole thing, or an “S” if I eat half?)

    • Jen says:

      Mara I’m so glad you are enjoying it! I just love it too:) Yes! That’s correct about the amount. If you eat half of the recipe then you’re only eating 1/8 cup of oats so that’s good in an “S” setting if you are eating other foods with the oatmeal that are “S”. If you’re just eating half of the recipe and nothing else as your meal, feel free to just add more oats and make it an “E”! Or just eat the whole recipe:)

        Awesome, thanks for the quick reply, Jen! =) I’m new to THM, and I think it’s making sense now, but oats still seem to be tricky. This makes sense though! This is going on the regular rotation for sure! =)

      • Mara (@ Super Savings) says:

        Forgot to mention, I only used 3 packets of Truvia and figured I could add more in the morning if it needed it. It was sweet enough for me with just the 3 – which is really saying something coming from a sugar addict! 😉

        • Jen says:

          Sure thing! Welcome to the THM bandwagon! 🙂 It’s a constant learning process for all of us. I hear you about oats being tricky. I am just now understanding the concept a little better myself! THM on Facebook is such an awesome support group. They are very helpful and encouraging as we all strive to eat healthy yummy food!

          Ooooo I’ll have to try less Truvia then! I know the strawberries are pretty sweet in themselves. Thanks for the tip!

          • Mara (@ Super Savings) says:

            Oh yes, I love the THM Facebook page! So much encouragement and inspiration. I haven’t actually been able to read the book yet, but I’ve already learned so much from those ladies, and gotten awesome recipe ideas from them! That’s where I found your awesome blog! You’re right we have a lot in common! I’m your newest fan, follower, and fellow foodie. 😉

    I am just starting out and do not have Truvia, but have the THM sweet blend and THM stevia. Which would be better for this recipe? Thanks!

    • Jen says:

      Hi Rhonda! I’ve actually not tried the THM Sweet Blend or THM Stevia yet! So I’m sorry I’m not 100% sure on that…I would guess the Sweet Blend because I think it’s suppose to be similar to Truvia…? Here is the THM Sweetener Conversion Chart that will help with the measurements!

    Hi there…I just made this recipe and I can’t wait to eat it in the morning! I’m just curious about the fat content for the coconut if eaten in the E setting….does it fall under 5gr?
    Thanks for posting and sharing your recipe!

    • Jen says:

      Hi Esther! So for an E setting, I would suggest only a tiny bit of coconut flakes but add more oats if you want (check the back of your coconut flakes bag to see how much fat per TBS)! You could also leave the coconut flakes out all together if you wanted to eat the 5g of fat somewhere else in your meal, like half and half or heavy cream in your coffee. 🙂

    • Jen says:

      So glad you enjoyed it! Yes, in an E setting put less coconut! I apologize that’s not too clear in the recipe, I’ll adjust it! 🙂
