Nutritious Matcha Oatmeal recipe

Nutritious Matcha Oatmeal

A warm bowl of oatmeal (porridge) is one of the best ways to start your day with a filling breakfast. Oatmeal is wonderful when the weather is cold, but it is just as satisfying on warm days when topped with frozen fruit.

This simple recipe is a favourite among the health conscious. It contains Organic Green Tea Matcha Powder. Regular oatmeal is transformed into super oatmeal. Topping it with fresh, frozen, or dried fruit; seeds; or nuts makes it even more nutritious.

Oats are high in fibre and quite filling. The hunger pangs and the feelings of starvation take a longer time to occur. It is highly recommended to cook oatmeal on the stove rather than in the microwave. Cooking time is only four minutes. It can be prepared without feeling rushed.

Adding a pinch of salt to the oatmeal brings out the flavor. When making breakfast for others than yourself, and unsure about their sweetness preference, do not add a sweetener when cooking. Serve it in an unsweetened fashion. The sweetness of oatmeal can easily be controlled by adding honey or syrups like maple or date syrup. Dried dates are an excellent sweetener to add to oatmeal.

Organic Green Tea Matcha Powder is made only from the highest colour quality tea, which is a brilliant green. It has a smooth taste that is slightly bitter. Quality organic green tea is ideal for daily consumption. Those who are not tea drinking individuals or who wish some added benefits can use the green tea powder in breakfast and snack recipes. The oils in the tea are the source of its delicious aroma and flavor. Polyphenols, phytonutrients, and enzymes contained in the tea each have different health attributes.

Matcha powder has anti-aging power from which both women and men can reap the benefits. It aids in the prevention of heart diseases and cancer. Matcha powder naturally boosts the system and is great when feeling tired. Using it in oatmeal packs the breakfast with fibre, antioxidants, and vitamins.

Ingredients (4 servings):
-       1 tsp Matcha Green Tea Powder
-       1 1/2 cup oatmeal
-       1 cup rice milk (or any other plant-based milk)
-       pinch of pink himalayan salt

Topping ideas:
-       walnuts, cashews, peanuts
-       chia seeds, flax seeds
-       dried cranberries, sultanas, dried dates
-       coconut flakes
-       fresh fruit, frozen fruit
-       maple syrup, date syrup, honey

Instructions:
1.     Place milk, oats, Organic Green Tea Matcha Powder and salt into a saucepan and let it simmer, but stir the whole time. In few minutes it will get thicker, that’s when it goes off the heat. Serve plain and let family/friends/kids to top their own plate. It’s fun! Enjoy!
