Matcha Overnight Oats
No blah oats here! This Matcha Overnight Oats recipe is packed with flavor that comes from matcha powder, vanilla, cinnamon and ginger, and it has that great chewy texture we love about overnight oats. You'll also get the nutritional benefits of chia seeds. Because it's decidedly bold, you can add just about any toppings you want and still enjoy the delicious heartiness of the matcha overnight oats.
Makes 4 servings
What you will need
2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup oat milk
1 tablespoon ChaTo Matcha Powder
4 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ginger powder
In a medium mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and mix until well incorporated, making sure there are no clumps of matcha powder.
Portion into individual bowls or glasses.
Seal and store in refrigerator overnight.
Before serving, stir well and add a little more milk to loosen it up if necessary.
To make the yogurt topping above: In a blender, puree 10 oz plain Greek yogurt, 1 cup frozen berries of your choice (we used strawberries, mangoes and blueberries), 1/2 cup oat milk, and 1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional). Alternatively, you can use fresh fruit and a few ice cubes.
To make the blueberry compote below: To a small saucepan, combine 2 cups fresh blueberries, zest of 1/2 lemon, sweetener to taste (we used 3 tablespoons of maple syrup) and 1 1/2 ounces water. Cook over medium heat for approximately 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Let it cool slightly before pouring into serving glasses and top with stirred matcha overnight oats.
To make the matcha whipped cream: In a small mixing bowl, beat 1 cup heavy whipping cream, 2 tablespoons confectioner's sugar, 1 teaspoon ChaTo Matcha Powder and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract until you attain the desired consistency.
