Matcha Vanilla Overnight Oats

Matcha overnight oats have been popping up regularly on my Instagram feed and became a must try. They're a great breakfast and after I got this photo I put mine in a tupperware and took them to work to eat at the desk. Sadly the tupperware was an epic fail and so my handbag got covered in green liquid!! So if you're travelling with them, get a properly sealing one won't you... 

Matcha is a fantastic ingredient for breakfast with all its health benefits. Its full of antioxidants, enhances calm and boosts memory and concentration. Definitely a good way to start the day. If you've been watching Great British Bake Off no-one seems to be able to get the flavour quite right with matcha, Paul Hollywood constantly saying he doesn't like it and it's too savoury.  They're doing it wrong in my opinion! 

Can we also talk about how exotic blueberries look when you cut them in half?! Like a different fruit...
