Breakfast Strawberry Shortcake with Greek Yogurt & Oats

Breakfast Strawberry Shortcake with Greek Yogurt & Oats ~ Eating dessert for breakfast?  Absolutely!  Greek yogurt, oats, mashed strawberries & a bit of sweetener become a sweet treat for breakfast that only tastes indulgent.  :)

I'm loving using fat free Greek yogurt!  It really turns whatever I use it in into something special!  The other morning I came up with a very satisfying breakfast spin on a dessert favorite of mine, Strawberry Shortcake.  This recipe only has a few ingredients, but it really packs in the flavor.  I'm calling it my ~ Breakfast Strawberry Shortcake Greek Yogurt & Oats

I think it would be just as good for an actual dessert, too ~ if you're so inclined.  I bet blueberries & peaches would also be a good combo for this breakfast/dessert.  Hope you like it as much as I do!

Breakfast Strawberry Shortcake with Greek Yogurt & Oats
serves one

  • 8 oz. of fat free Greek yogurt (or your favorite kind)
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats ~ uncooked
  • 1/3 cup mashed strawberries (fresh or frozen/thawed)
  • 3 packets of Equal (or sweetener of choice)

Mash fresh/thawed strawberries with 2 packets of Equal, until nice & mushy.

Stir Greek yogurt, oats & remaining Equal packet together until fully combined.

Fold in the mashed strawberries.  

Serve in a pretty bowl.  Enjoy!

((if you don't want to bother with mashing the strawberries, you could probably use a couple of tablespoons of fruit juice sweetened strawberry jam, for a similar taste))


  1. Does this need to sit in the fridge over night? The whole raw oats thing is worrying me a bit - I guess I just have to try it!

    1. Hi Morgan!

      I like to eat raw oats, so I enjoy eating them uncooked. If you like your oats softer, by all means, let it sit overnight and then try it. If you do make it that way, I'd suggest mixing it up, wait a few minutes, taste it, then put it in the fridge to sit overnight. Then, when you eat it in the morning, compare it with the 'raw version' you tasted the night before and see if you prefer one way over the other. That's how I 'test' a lot of what I eat, try a few bites one way and then complete the recipe. That way I can try 'two recipes' for the time/effort/cost of 'one'.

      Thanks so much for stopping by & commenting ~ Cheers!
