Sweeten your day with healthy and nutritious Strawberry Overnight Oats for breakfast or as a wonderful afternoon snack.
Strawberry season is upon us and we’re always searching for new things to make with fresh-picked strawberries on the eastern shore. Strawberries and cream are a traditional English dessert or afternoon tea snack. These overnight oats are an homage to the traditional preparation.
This recipe takes about 10 minutes to prepare and five minutes to clean up. In no time, you are ready with a healthy and delicious, nutritious meal for you and someone you love. Enjoy this recipe year-round.
Growing strawberries is so simple and guarantees pesticide-free fruit. Check out our blog on growing strawberries to grow your own for this wonderful dish, and for strawberries all summer long. What a treat!
We can thank our beloved honeybees for strawberries, for without bees we would not have very many strawberries to enjoy. Celebrate bees and strawberries with us in our summertime roundup.
