Overnight oats are probably one of my favorite breakfasts to prep!
Today I am sharing with you these strawberry overnight oats with a balsamic vinegar reduction. While regular overnights with some strawberries are good, the addition of a balsamic reduction makes them great!
How to Make a Balsamic Reduction:
The recipe for my strawberry overnight oats requires a balsamic reduction. A balsamic vinegar reduction is basically just thickened, more flavorful, reduced down balsamic vinegar. You will need to add a cup or more, based on how much you need, of balsamic vinegar to a medium saucepan and heat it on medium-low for about thirty minutes. By the thirty-minute mark the vinegar should be reduced by half. If you added one cup of balsamic vinegar, then there should be approximately half left.
Some Uses for Balsamic Vinegar Reduction:
Strawberries + balsamic vinegar = magic, trust me! Don’t forget to add some whipped cream or mascarpone!
