I am taking any and every suggestion on how to transition a new puppy to new food. WE ARE NOT SLEEPING! Real talk right here…food transitioning leads to hourly poops and sleepless nights.

Paul seems to be dealing with it well. During this whole puppy-raising process, I’m really seeing a whole new side of him. He’s tired, but pretty calm overall, showers the puppy with love all day, even though she keeps him up all night, and is unbelievably patient with me.

I, on the other hand, am a basket case. Not sleeping turns me into a monster that cries over little things like the lights being left on and the softness of my cat’s fur. It’s insane.

While we’re trying to figure out this whole puppy food thing and the best way to split night duty, I’ve found that preparing my breakfast the night before can be a whole lot of help.

That’s where these overnight oats come in. I have a few recipes for overnight oats on this site, but this one is definitely my fav. Seriously, blended strawberries with some vanilla bean and Greek yogurt gives these oats a wonderful fruity flavour that isn’t too sweet. I added some chia seeds as well for thickening (but also because I love them!) and sprinkled some sliced almonds on top for crunch.

Strawberry Vanilla Overnight Oats with Chia

Yield: 2 small mason jars of oats

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup milk*
  • 1/2 cup plain/vanilla greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup strawberries
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, scraped
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Sprinkle sea salt
  • For serving: fresh sliced strawberries, sliced almonds, raw sugar, etc.

Instructions

  1. In a blender or food processor, process the greek yogurt, milk of choice, and strawberries together until smooth. Pour mixture into a small mason jar, or jar of choice. Add in the oats, chia seeds, vanilla, cinnamon, and sea salt. Stir everything together and place the lid on the jar and give the mixture a good shake to combine the ingredients. Place the lid back on the jar and refrigerate overnight.
  2. In the morning, you can serve oats either right from the jar or in a bowl. Simply serve with a sprinkle of sliced almonds, fresh berries, and some raw sugar, if desired (it is actually sweet enough if you use vanilla yogurt though!)

Notes

*I used cashew milk, but any milk is absolutely fine.

  1. These oats look awesome, Katrina! I’d love to have these for breakfast! Good luck on the puppy training – I have no advice there. 🙁

  2. Sounds like hugs back are much needed *hugs* I know it can take it out on you being puppy parents – and it sounds like you’ve gone through an intense time, BUT you will soon find it gets better 🙂 Do you take the puppy to classes? Sometimes even local pet shops or vets might be able to give you some extra hints and tips 🙂

    These overnight oats seem like they’d brighten up any sleep deprived morning though, yum! 😀

    This sounds like REALLY good baby practice. #JustSaying. But I’m pretty sure it gets better!! I can only speak for baby-induced sleepless nights, but having an easy breakfast to grab in the morning makes everything SO MUCH BETTER. Definitely approve of these overnight oats!
