Starbucks Copycat – NO Sugar Added Strawberry Overnight Grains

Starbucks Copycat – NO Sugar Added Strawberry Overnight Grains


3 Servings
Serving Size:398g
* Optional Substitution Note


Ingredients for 3 servings

Serving size: ~398g
  • 3/4 cup uncooked steel cut oats
  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  •  Cream
    • 92g soft tofu (or 1 cup 2% cottage cheese)
    • 1/2 cup (frozen or fresh) strawberries
      • Sub: 1 date, 2 tablespoons coconut sugar, stevia in the raw, 2 tablespoons maple
    • 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk (or choice of milk)
  • Compote
    • 1 teaspoon butter OR avocado oil
    • 1 1/2 cups frozen or fresh strawberries
    • juice from 1 orange
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon



Step 1

Fill a medium-size bowl with room temperature water and dissolve 2 tablespoons of salt.  Add the strawberries and set aside for 10 minutes while you prep the cream and oats.



Step 2

To a blender add the ingredients for the cream and process until smooth.  Set aside.

Step 3

In a large mixing bowl, add the oats, quinoa and chia seeds.  Mix with a fork, then pour in the cream and stir with a spatula and set aside.

Step 4

Drain the water from the bowl of strawberries.   Set a nonstick skillet on medium high heat and once hot, add the butter (or oil) and the strawberries.  Cook until the berries begin to burst and create their own natural jam, about 6 – 8 minutes.   Then sprinkle in cinnamon and squeeze in juice from 1 orange to help caramelize the strawberries.  Cook for an additional 2 – 3 minutes.


Step 5

To your meal container or jar add the berry compote then top with the cream.  Place in the fridge overnight (or for 4 hours).  Note: you may need a few tablespoons of almond milk in the morning in case the grains have gotten too thick.


Step 6

The prepped oats can last about 1.5 weeks in the fridge and for months in the freezer.  Enjoy!

    Love this healthy Starbucks copycat! Perfect for mealprep and the recipe is very easy to follow and the results are delicious.

    1. oh heck yeah! I did this for meal prep as well – it didnt make it the whole week because I couldnt help myself lolol but at least I tried! maybe you’ll have more success/control!

    1. About 398g (weighed) – should be in nutritional breakdown. 5oz – 6oz container should be just fine!

    Personally wasn’t a fan. Seemed like a great pre workout meal especially being vegan, but I followed word for word and mine came out awful 😩 hopefully comes out better for you 😌🙏🏼

    1. oh no! I wonder what went wrong for you? I sometimes need to add more sweetener (sugar or agave) to my oats. I wonder if that’ll help.
