Marvellous Matcha Breakfast Bowl

SERVES 1

Preparation time: 5 minutes, plus 1-2 hours chilling (or overnight)

Getting your day off to a wonderfully fresh start, this breakfast bowl is made with yoghurt combined with matcha powder and chia seeds, topped with fresh berries, mixed seeds and a drizzle of honey.

Made using OMGTea Japanese Matcha Tea.

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp matcha powder
  • 1 tbsp hot water
  • 200g low fat Greek-style yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 40g raspberries
  • 40g blueberries
  • 20g pomegranate seeds
  • 10g mixed seeds
  • Clear honey, for drizzling

Instructions

  1. Blend the matcha powder with the hot water to make a smooth paste.
  2. Mix together the yoghurt and chia seeds, then stir in the cooled matcha paste. Pour into a shallow serving bowl. Cover and leave to chill for 1-2 hours, or overnight if preferred. (The chia seeds will swell to thicken the mixture).
  3. When ready to eat, arrange the raspberries, blueberries and pomegranate seeds on top. Sprinkle with the mixed seeds and serve, drizzled with clear honey.

Tips: simply double the quantities to serve two, or make a batch of the matcha, chia and yoghurt mixture to keep in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can bring out the flavour of the mixed seeds by toasting them in a dry frying pan for about 30 seconds, shaking the pan occasionally. For a dairy-free version choose a soya or alternative non-dairy yoghurt.
