SUPERFOOD OATMEAL: TEA-INFUSED MULTIGRAIN OATMEAL

OAT-TEA-MEAL

Big T NYC'S Tea-Infused Organic Oatmeal Recipe

Our simple, easy to make tea-infused oatmeal recipe is made with Baby It’s Cold Outside Organic Black Tea. This nutty-maple and oatmeal blend is perfect all year round and provides a gentle caffeine lift to start your day. Plus, it can be paired up with chia seeds, flax seeds, almonds, fruit and maple syrup to make it a delicious superfood breakfast that packs a lot nutritional punch. 

What’s In It For You?

In this superfood recipe, we used our Baby It's Cold Outside Organic Black Tea. We love how richly aromatic it is, and the blend of the Vietnamese black and oolong teas, Indonesian vanilla, California almonds and maple add antioxidants as well as a delicious subtle flavor that we can't get enough of.

This multigrain recipe features oatmeal, which is proven to lower cholesterol and blood pressure. Oatmeal also contains omega-3 fatty acids, calcium and potassium. The recipes also includes rye (known for its fiber and weight loss properties), barley (rich in vitamins and minerals that help lower blood pressure and inflammation), whole wheat (provides vitamin B, protein and fiber), and flax seeds, which helps lower cholesterol, balance hormones and clear out skin.  We added chia seeds for the antioxidants, proteins, fiber and for more calcium and potassium. Sprinkled in some organic almonds, which helps reduce heart disease, regulate blood sugar and aid weight loss. And then we topped it all off with organic strawberries to help boost your immune system and get a good dose of vitamin C and B! Finally, we splashed some organic maple syrup for a great natural sugar alternative that's full of magnesium, zinc and iron.

Steps:

1. Prepare Baby it's Cold Outside Tea: add 1.25 teaspoon of tea to an infuser (we love the convenience of our biodegradable drawstring tea filters!). Pour 208 F water over the tea and let steep for 4-6 minutes. 

2. Pour oatmeal + chia seeds into a bowl and follow the instructions on the package to prepare - substituting Baby It's Cold Outside Organic Black Tea for the water or milk.

3. Garnish with strawberries, almonds, chia seeds and maple syrup and enjoy!
