Strawberry Overnight Oats

Mar 31, 2019

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!

Strawberry Overnight Oats

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:

  • Salad dressings
  • Roasted vegetables
  • Chicken marinade
  • Ice cream
  • Strawberries + balsamic vinegar = magic, trust me!  Don’t forget to add some whipped cream or mascarpone!
