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.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cups of old fashioned oatmeal (can be gluten free if needed)
  • 3/4 -1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk (depends how thick you like it)
  • 1 teaspoon of Matcha powder (I used Encha’s Organic Premium)
  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
  • dash of vanilla extract
  • dash of cinnamon

Directions:

Add oats, milk, matcha powder and chia seeds together into your mason jar or tupperware. Shake well. Add vanilla and cinnamon. Stir until mixed well.

Do any of you love Matcha? Hate it? Tell me!
