Strawberry Smoothie Summer Oats

 1/4 cup uncooked old fashioned oats
1/3 cup almond milk
2 tablespoons vanilla favored yogurt
2 teaspoons maple syrup
1/4 cup strawberries  puree *

 In a half pint jar, add oats, milk, yogurt,  and maple syrup. Put lid on jar.
 Shake until well until combined.
 Add your strawberry puree and stir until mixed throughout. Refrigerate overnight or up to 2 days. Eat chilled.

*Strawberry puree I made because I had some teeth pulled. That way I had some for for a quick smoothie to drink. I put some fresh strawberries  in blender.  Then ran them threw a strainer to remove seeds (you don't have too ) I frozen the puree for even quicker smoothie!
