    Vanilla Matcha Overnight Oats

    Matcha is all craze at the moment. Clearly I fell for it and ordered Matcha powder online so I can try to make fancy lattes and drink it for some more superfood powers (like I need another superfood in my pantry). If you haven’t had Matcha before it’s a superfood green tea that comes in a powder form. It typically comes from Japan and is an enhanced/stronger green tea filled with super-antioxidants. It does have caffeine which I typically try to stay away from but a serving of Matcha is equal to half a cup of coffee (I can definitely handle that).

    Now the taste of Matcha is not something everyone loves. It tastes very, well, green. When I drink it straight with water I try to add some almond milk and cinnamon so make it a little weaker as the green taste can be a little much for me at times.

    Naturally I wanted to make Overnight Oats using Matcha (are you surprised?) So I added 1 teaspoon (that’s all you need a day) to my Overnight Oats prep last night. When I tasted it, it was most definitely a different taste for my oats but if you love Matcha and enjoy the taste of it, you will love these Matcha Overnight Oats.

    I have made these overnight oats 3x’s in the past 2 weeks! They are quick, healthy and tasty…but, for me, in order for them to be TASTY, I need to add a banana. Once I add that, they are OUTSTANDING! Thanks for a quick go-to breakfast or mid-day treat. 🙂

    Made this last night, and had it this morning. It was DELICIOUS! The best overnight oatmeal recipe I’ve had so far. I used a full cup of the milk (plant-based vanilla flavored), and I didn’t add any extra vanilla extract. I almost didn’t add the cinnamon, but I’m so glad I did. It was a great compliment to the whole dish.
    Thanks for sharing!
