Strawberry Oatmeal Recipe

When I have time, I will use breakfast to try out new recipes and combinations. But sometimes, there just isn’t the time.

For so many of us, breakfast needs to be quick and convenient without having to think. This is why oatmeal with milk is such a good choice, even if it can be a little uninspiring.

If you love to use a blender in the morning, this recipe is for you. By blending your oatmeal with strawberries, you can add fresh, sweet notes, while still enjoying the benefits of your morning oats.

There’s so much room to experiment with additions and toppings, and you can really make this a morning staple all the family can enjoy to kickstart the day.

Ingredients

To make my strawberry oatmeal recipe, you’ll need the following ingredients:

Strawberry Oatmeal Ingredients
  • Oats – 1 cup oats
  • Milk – 2 1/2 cups milk
  • Salt – pinch of salt
  • Honey – 2 tbsp of honey (plus more to taste to top the oatmeal)
  • Strawberries – 3 cups fresh strawberries (10.5 oz or 300 grams)

Ingredient Notes

Oats – I used Scottish oats, but you can also use rolled oats or quick-cooking oats. If using steel-cut oats (not the quick-cooking steel-cut oats), you generally need to simmer for about 20 minutes. In this case, increase the liquid by adding another half cup of milk or water.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Step 1 – Remove the stem from the strawberries and blend the milk and two-thirds of the strawberries. Set aside 1/3 of the strawberries to top the oatmeal later.

Step 2 – To a pot, over medium heat, add the strawberry-milk mixture, salt, honey, and oats.
