Little hint: We roughly measured out the key ingredients using one cup (less washing up). Don't worry if a bit extra sneaks in - just get a consistency you're happy with and remember it'll thicken up overnight in the fridge.
  • 1/2 cup of rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup thick yoghurt
  • 2/3 cup of Arla Big Milk
  • Handful of fresh strawberries, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons of soft cream cheese
  • Zest and juice of half a lemon
  • Pinch of salt
  • Honey, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon of flax seeds (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract (optional)


1. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.

2. Decant into jars, seal and refrigerate overnight.
