Cherry Vanilla Overnight Oats

Cherries are possibly my very favorite fruit, always have been, and probably always will be.  I think I can attribute it to the fact that my mother always loved cherries, so it was always a special treat when we got some.

These cherry vanilla overnight oats are incredibly delicious.  I love the vanilla flavored oats dotted with sweet dark cherries for a fun, fruity zip.

Cherry Vanilla Overnight Oats


1 1/3 c. oats
1/2 c. plain Greek yogurt
1 1/3 c. milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbs honey
1 c. frozen sweet cherries


Place the oats, yogurt, milk, honey, and extract in your mason jar (this is a doubled recipe and fits in a quart jar).  Put on the lid and shake vigorously until all the ingredients are mixed.  Place the cherries on top of the oat mixture, but do not shake or stir them in unless you want it all fully combined  Replace lid and allow the oats to sit overnight.
