Healthy Matcha Green Tea Overnight Oats

Healthy Matcha Green Tea Overnight Oats!  Don’t be scared, these oats are just like any other oatmeal — they’re sweet, they’re delicious, they’re healthy.  It’s just, you know, green.

Very different from my Chocolate Fudge Overnight Oats, yes?

One can never get sick of chocolate but it’s always good to change things up every now and then.  One morning, I decided to use matcha instead of cocoa.  The result?  Delicious, vibrant, and sweet, Matcha Green Tea Overnight Oats.

Don’t be scared, just enjoy.  Close your eyes if you have to  😉

This oatmeal is delicious when topped with all-natural whipped cream (I like Soyatoo rice whip) and Homemade White Chocolate.
