Warm & Satisfying Matcha Oats

My favourite drink to get at any café is the *matcha latte*. I love it with almond milk, with soy milk, and especially with oat milk. I love it so much, that I decided to recreate it in my morning oats. I love this recipe; the oats get so creamy and it’s so satisfying and warm!

Matcha is proven to have many health benefits―it boosts the metabolism, aids in your body’s detoxification process, and is packed with powerful antioxidants. Read more about it here, here and here. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Why is life worth living? That’s a very good question. Well, there are certain things I guess that make it worthwhile. Like what? Okay, for me, I would say, dogs, post cards, cafés, hats (especially berets), Paris, stationary, soy lattes, Les Miserables, string lights, and barrettes.
