V’Oh Canada Day


Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians!

In honour of our great country, I made some extra special Vegan Overnight Oats this morning! VOO => V’OH!

V’Oh Canada Oats


  • 1/2 cups oats
  • 1.25 cups almond milk
  • 1 tbsp pure Canadian maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract



  • Banana Soft Serve 
  • Unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Strawberries (you could also use cherries)


Directions: Whisk together VOO ingredients and place in fridge overnight or for 1-2 hours. In the morning, place VOO on a plate. Wash, trim, and slice 1 cup of strawberries. Make banana soft serve by processing 1 frozen banana. Smear on banana soft serve over VOO. Take sliced strawberries and create a maple leaf shape and two red stripes at each end. Serve immediately!

I used a rectangular plate and spread the oats over top. Then I spread the banana soft serve over top as far as it would spread. Make sure you slice the strawberries before making the soft serve to reduce the time it can melt!

Now layer with strawberries and sprinkle with coconut.

I got this strawberry maple leaf idea from an image of a cake I saw on online.

Last night I channeled my inner Martha and did some Canada Day crafting…

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Flags printed out on cardstock, see below (regular paper might work too!)

  • Scissors

If you want to make some yourself, just print off this image of a Canadian Flag making sure to select the smallest image size available when printing.

[I realize this is the 3rd post in a row where I asked you to craft something. I promise this isn’t turning into a crafting blog!]  :lol:

I printed 35 flags per piece of cardstock…

Cut them out and then tape a toothpick to the back. You can do front and back if you want too. Quick and easy!

What a CUTE way to celebrate!! Love the maple leaf design out of the strawberries!

In the past, I have made an “American Flag” cake decorated with white whip cream, then using blueberries and strawberries to decorate for Fourth of July, but this year I’ll be camping and won’t have to prepare anything fancy!


Cassie @ Tasteful Tales July 1, 2010

What a beautiful picture of our oats! I really admire how creative you are ;)

I LOVE those dishes, so cute!!! I’ll have to find a creative american flag design to add to some of my 4th of july food…something healthy too!
