Matcha Hemp Seed Blueberry Overnight Oats

Recipe: Matcha Hemp Seed Blueberry Overnight Oats

A big bowl of oatmeal is a great way to start your day, but who has time to cook a pot of oats every morning? Overnight oats are prepared in advance so all you have to do in the morning is grab a spoon and enjoy!

Oats are rich in filling fiber to keep you satisfied for hours. A combination of soy milk and soy yogurt creates the perfect creamy custard-like consistency and provides protein and calcium, which are essential for beautiful posture, strong nails, and a sparkling smile.
