I had seen lots of overnight oatmeal in a jar recipes lately and I decided to give them a try. I have heard that matcha and mango go pretty well, so I want to try the flavor combination in this recipe.
If you are not familiar with matcha, I strongly suggest you to try it first. I love matcha because you can add it to almost anything it’s like vanilla, you can even make a Matcha Latte! The flavor is really intense, so you might want to start with small quantities. It’s delicious and it’s packed with so many benefits.
If you want to learn more about matcha, benefits and nutritional facts visit Body, Health, Love blog, she made an amazing job pulling out together all the information you need about matcha powder.
I started mixing 1/8 teaspoon to 1/4 cup of greek yogurt (with honey). As I suggest in my previous Yogurt +Matcha + Honey recipe, test small quantities of matcha at a time because depending on the quality of the matcha, the flavor can be quite intense.
Add the uncooked oats (1/4 cup) to a mason jar with 1/3 cup of milk.
Add half of the mango (1/4 cup)
Add the yogurt (I didn’t add any sweetener because I use Honey greek yogurt but you can add 1 teaspoon of honey or any other sweetener). Add the remaining mango. Put a lid on the jar or cover it with plastic, refrigerate overnight (at least 4 hours). When you are ready mixed all and eat it chilled.
I think I’m getting addict to overnight oatmeal, it helps me start my day so much faster and in a great mood after a yummy super breakfast.
