Yes, I know I have been slacking on blogging lately despite spring break and actually having more time to blog. I have three papers to write plus a twenty-five page portfolio for my travel writing class to do over break, so I don't actually get much of a break! Not that I've been all that productive on my attempts at schoolwork or cleaning. I actually don't know what I've been doing with my new found free time. I'd like to report that I've been off exploring the world, but aside from spending some time with friends all I've done is sleep in until 9 AM two days in a row, read some of That Hideous Strength by C.S. Lewis, and waste some time on Pinterest. Hopefully, I'll be more productive soon!
"Why is that green?" you might ask. Yes, I know St. Patrick's Day is over. This is my first attempt at putting matcha green tea powder in my oatmeal, inspired by Green Tea Latte Oatmeal. I omitted the coffee and made it stovetop. Since oatmeal is one of my favorite foods and matcha green tea is my favorite beverage, this definitely tops my list for favorite breakfasts. It also inspired me to get creative and attempt to replicate a Green Tea Frappuccino as overnight oats.
Green Tea Frappuccino Overnight Oats
1/2 cup almond milk
1/3 cup vanilla yogurt
1/3 cup oats
1 TBSP matcha powder
Optional: Cool Whip
Mix all ingredients (except Cool Whip) in a mason jar and refrigerate overnight.
Since I haven't done weekly travel highlights yet, here is one for you:
Any guesses where I encountered this sign? Hint: I would love to be there right now for spring break!
Do you have any spring break plans?
